[Restaurant biz] Congrats to Karen Olson, owner of Metropolitan restaurant. She's been named as Vice Chair to the Board of Directors of DiRoNA, the Distinguished Restaurants of North America http://www.dirona.com/ -- an organization created to promote the fine dining industry.
DiRoNA awards are bestowed upon fine dining restaurants following a rigorous anonymous inspection process which evaluates the restaurants' food, wine, service, physical property and decor. There are approximately 800 DiRoNA restaurants. Four Utah restaurants are current DiRoNA award winners: Grappa Italian Restaurant, Log Haven, Metropolitan, and Riverhorse on Main. (Ted Scheffler)
