Contemporary American | Tempe, East Valley

We went to Salut for brunch prior to attending a football game. The place only had a few customers which didn’t explain the somewhat slow service. We sat on the nice patio which is dog friendly. If I was to rate Salut on the taste of their food alone they would be 5 stars on this visit. One friend had the Breakfast Burger which he proclaimed “the best burger I have ever had, no need to add ketchup”. The other two of us had the Biscuits & Gravy. The chorizo gravy packed a ton of flavor and heat. But it was plated on a warped wood board. It was odd and while I am sure it was fine I felt it seemed unsanitary. I will continue to include Salut on my weekend brunch recommendations as the food, location and patio are very good. More

We ordered a salad that came with romaine lettuce which had been recalled, so iceberg was substituted. Our friend had the steak salad that came with spinach salad. I said “It would have been better to give us the option of iceberg lettuce vs spinach salad rather than just give us the iceberg lettuce. It truly distracted from the salad and there were no tomatoes etc on it. Just some pear pieces and a nice dressing. We were disappointed, but very hungry! We ate it all! More

Chutney’s is a great place for family and group of friends. We enjoyed the tasty appetizers and amazing main meals. The staff paid attention to our likes and needs. The bar tender suggested a delicious mango and pineapple mojito. Sweet to my liking. This is at dinner time. I’m sure the lunches are much busier but we like a quieter time. And we will b back soon.
