Bruges Waffle and Frites  The original tiny shop turns out waffles made with pearl sugar, topped with fruit, whipped cream or chocolate. Plus frites, Belgian beef stew and a gargantuan sandwich called a mitraillette (or submachine gun). The slightly larger Sugar House cafe has a bigger menu. 336 W. Broadway, SLC, 801-363-4444; 2314 S. Highland Dr., 801-486-9999. $

Café Madrid  Authentic dishes like garlic soup share the menu with port-sauced lamb shank. Service is courteous and friendly at this family-owned spot. 5244 S. Highland Dr., Holladay, 801-273-0837. $$

Finca  The spirit of Spain is alive and well on the plate at this modern tapateria. Scott Evans, owner of Pago translates his love of Spain into food that ranges from authentically to impressionistically Spanish, using as many local ingredients as possible. The new location brings a hip, downtown vibe to the whole enterprise, larger now and with a cool lounge area. 327 W. 200 South, SLC, 801-487-0699. $$ – $$$

Franck’s  Founding chef Franck Peissel’s influence can still be tasted—personal interpretations of continental classics. Some, like the meatloaf, are perennials, but mostly the menu changes according to season and the current chef’s whim. 6263 S. Holladay Blvd., 801-274-6264. $$$

Paris Bistro  Rejoice in true French cuisine via escargots, confit, duck, daube and baked oysters, steak and moules frites and a beautifully Gallic wine list. The Zinc Bar remains the prime place to dine. 1500 S. 1500 East, SLC, 801-486-5585. $$$

Trestle Tavern  Another concept from Scott Evans, owner of Pago, Finca, Hub & Spoke, etc., this restaurant in the former Fresco space, is built around Eastern European food—pierogi, cabbage rolls, beer and pretzels, along with the fine beer, wine and spirits list you can count on at all Evans’ restaurants. 1513 S. 1500 East, SLC, 801-532-3372. $$
