ZY isn’t just a restaurant; it isn’t just about food. It’s about the experience of good local food. It’s about wines you’ve never heard of but will never forget. It’s about dishes you thought you knew but clearly had forgotten. It’s about cheeses from random people in random locales that give a whole new meaning to the word, “gourmet.”
Mathew Lake, ZY's creator and head chef, has had a full career filled with famous names and outstanding places. But he wanted to do something different. Something important. Something in Salt Lake.
ZY(pronounced Zī) will feature American cuisine in a whole new light. It is located directly behind the Gallivan Center (to the East) in downtown Salt Lake City. In addition to nightly dining, ZY will hold interactive events throughout the year that specialize in sharing the goodness of delicious food. We will often feature:
- Cooking classes for adults & children
- Guest chef presentations
- Visits from cheese makers
- Tutorials from vintners and brewers
- Special dinners
Stay informed of what’s new at ZY by “liking” us on Facebook and following us on Twitter. That way, you’ll never miss our always-changing, up-coming events.
Our website will also feature an e-cookbook full of the best tools-of-the-trade Matt has collected from his years of experience. We give you utter permission to use our recipes and cooking tips to your heart’s content.
With ZY, you will not only smile while you eat, you will travel outside of the city through your plate. Matt will bring his love of unique and excellent things to your table. He will use diverse local flavors to bring Salt Lake a taste of the world.
