This is another one of those SLC restaurants that I’ve quite honestly stared at my entire life and am just now trying. Cody and I ventured here for a Friday night date night and gave Tin Angel our stamp of approval. Have you eaten here before? Love something off the menu that we didn’t try? Leave a comment! Cheers.
I still drool thinking of this hot bowl of fresh spinach and creamy fontina cheese. Its simple composition produced a surprisingly flavorful soup. Loved this and can’t wait to enjoy a bowl again.
A couple of starters alongside our soup and salad. Our favorite was the espresso crusted tenderloin. Beef tenderloin medallion dusted with espresso, grilled and topped with port wine reduction and gorgonzola. Talk about an explosion of flavors.
Cody’s chicken marsala: pan seared chicken breast sautéed with black truffles, crimini mushrooms, and marsala wine. Served with fresh fettuccine, baby vegetables, and topped with crispy speck and shaved parmiggiano. Delicious.
The winner of this meal, however, was undoubtedly the gnocchi with gorgonzola cream. Potato dumplings cooked with cream, white wine, and imported gorgonzola picante cheese. My server talked me into adding the duck confit (amazing but not necessary). This dish is rich, creamy, and everything you want in a dreamy bowl of gnocchi.We were so stuffed by the end that we didn’t have room for their famous bread pudding. Loved this fun and eclectic Salt Lake City spot filled with live music, delicious smells, and a very hospitable staff. Can’t wait to come back.
