Locals Only, Brunch at Wahso and Manoli Menu



Locals Only
On Sunday, Sept. 18, Fratelli Ristorante in Sandy (9236 Village Shop Drive, FratelliUtah.com) hosts a "locals only" wine pairing dinner with wines from two locally owned (Utah) wineries: IG Winery (Iron Gate) and Kiler Grove, along with locally produced menu items. Seatings are available from 5-8 p.m. The tentative dinner menu and wine pairings are as follows: Spanish-style bruschetta with IG Temperanillo; beet goat cheese and arugula salad with Kiler Grove Rosé; chicken pesto manicotti with IG Reserve Chardonnay; mixed local kabobs with IG Tempest Red Blend; and chocolate cake with black currant and cherry gelato with Kiler Grove Late Harvest Zinfandel. The per-person cost for dinner is $35 for food and $30 for optional wine pairings. There will also be a full bar selection available at an additional cost. Reserve your spot by calling 801-495-4550.

So, locals and visitors alike will be happy to know that Wahso (577 Main, Park City, Wahso.com) is now serving brunch on Sundays, from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Guests can enjoy people-watching or a break from the Park Silly Market while dining on the deck overlooking Main Street.

Manoli Menu
Manoli's (402 E. 900 South, 801-532-3760, ManolisOn9th.com) has introduced a late summer menu with new Greek dishes such as horiatiki heirloom tomato salad, kakavia seafood stew, and hirino me kaloboki fried pork shank. In addition, Tuesday through Thursday during August and September, Manoli's will be offering a special rotating wine-by-the-bottle list with wines priced at $30 per bottle, plus specialty cocktails and mimosas with the summery flavors of watermelon, peach, plum and blackberry.

Quote of the week: "I'm in favor of liberalizing immigration because of the effect it would have on restaurants. I'd let just about everybody in except the English."
