A Sensory Feast at Bambara Salt Lake City
Chef Powers' "New World of Flavors" menu is a mouthwatering reflection of Bambara's remarkable atmosphere. Situated in the lobby of Salt Lake City's historic Continental Bank lobby, the restaurant retains historic elements while adding eclectically playful touches. Grand arched windows, Art Deco glass and travertine marble meet with abstract custom-made light fixtures and a dynamic exhibition kitchen where Chef Powers creates memorable dishes with flair and time-honored techniques applied to the best seasonal ingredients, deeply rooted in the rhythms of the seasons. The focus is on the full exhibition kitchen where scintillating aromas hint at the dishes being prepared.
Chef Powers' food is as fun, approachable and memorable as Bambara's environment. Powers has a talent for adding an unexpected or exotic twist to New American mainstays. With the confidence of a seasoned artist, he easily creates a natural balance between the simple and the inspired. Diverse flavors and cultures harmoniously come together in dishes that highlight the best regional ingredients.
