New: The Protein Foundry: Being a person who loves to stay active and fit, I’ve been obsessed with The Protein Foundry ever since its opening one year ago. Not only do they provide a healthy, fresh menu, but also a friendly, bright, inspiring environment. In my opinion, they’ve started the trend for “healthy eats” in Utah and have done a great job of motivating others to treat their bodies to good food.
Root’s Cafe: Root’s Cafe has always been a personal, family, and friend favorite. The creators of this unique breakfast/lunch cafe have integrated fresh, local products into each dish. The flavors are unique, yet memorable and the atmosphere vibes are crave-worthy. It’s a perfect Saturday brunch restaurant for your health-conscious sister and your hearty-dish-loving dad.
Deer Valley Resort in Park City runs a full-scale, in-house charcuterie program—dried, cured and cooked meats—that can be enjoyed across the resort’s dining properties.
The al pastor tacos at El Morelense are life-altering. Head out to West Valley City for a real taste of Mexico.
Currently my favorite restaurant in Salt Lake City, hands down. A highly talented team crafts a menu that’s thoughtful, seasonal and ever-changing. What thing you can count on: some of the most jaw-dropping food in SLC.
The elegant and refined touch that chef and owner Matt Lakes brings to the cuisine at Alamexo is unparalleled. Lake pays homage to a cuisine that’s as complex and storied as any European tradition, but often overlooked by most restaurants for the cheap and cheerful. Alamexo isn’t just SLC’s best Mexican restaurant, it’s one of the finest overall.
Once a week you can find me at All Chay, a vegan Vietnamese restaurant located in Rose Park with friendly service and delectable food. I constantly crave the pho, bahn mi and other traditional dishes made with tasty mock meats and tofu.
“As a cocktail and spirits writer and photographer, for me, a restaurant is only as good as its cocktail program. I was so excited to find the new Table X creating craft cocktails that were just as inspired as the food. The classic old fashioned was done up right! If you’re looking for a new restaurant to try, Table X gets it all right — from the atmosphere and the service, to the beautiful food and craft cocktails.”
