BRYANT Salt Lake City-based The Queens' Tea is being sued by Seattle's Queen Mary Tea Room. The Queens' Tea is owned by Anderson and Michael Ferguson, a same sex couple, who claim  "the word 'queens' in their business name refers to the slang term for a gay man and has nothing to do with British royalty." Queen Mary Tea Room asked Queens' Tea to change their name or pay $15,000.

CAPITOL HILL — Nue, a project from first-time restauranteur Chris Cvetkovich, opens Saturday. The street food-style menu takes its inspiration from Cvetkovich's travels to more than 50 countries. Eater has photos of the restaurant.

Paseo is now under new ownership after an abrupt closure following news of some potentially illegal activities by its owners. The entire kitchen crew is the same, with many working for Paseo's former owner for a decade.
