Best of Utah 2008

By City Weekly Staff
Posted // April 2,2008 -

It’s our 19th annual Best of Utah issue—so, what have we learned? Apparently, to get started earlier, but that's a whole 'nother story …

This year’s cover models, Keys on Main (Best New Piano Joint) and the Voodoo Darlings (Best New Burlesque Troupe), are but two of 300-odd City Weekly staff picks to complement 100 categories voted on by our readers—and only 20 of you wrote in the Olive Garden for Best Italian Restaurant this time around; we’re quite proud of you.

More so than the 51 other weeks of the year, our Best of Utah issue is about turning you on to new things in the 801/435, as well as looking at old favorites in a different light and gently knocking around a deserving few here and there. We considered an entire section dedicated to Sen. Chris Buttars, but no one wanted to buy an ad there—sorry.

If we missed any of your favorites, let us know: We’re already gearing up for Best of Utah 20.

Posted // September 10,2008 at 15:37 I saw the comment by nx2norton and wanted to ad I used to go to the beans and brews on ft union until I found sunset coffee. Its not on the menu but order a capachino in a stay cup it was awsome.


Posted // September 10,2008 at 13:42 The coffee shop with the best view in town is now under new ownership. Sunset Coffee company took the place of Mocha Espress. We are owned by two long time coffee lovers that have watched quality come down over the years and saw the potential for the business and location. Our business has grown over the last few months because of the attention to quality beverages, service, and a new sandwich menu. Our chai is a one of a kind in utah and is voted the best chai latte by our customers in the entire valley. We would love to prove ourselves to our new customers please come and give Sunset coffee a try! Our location again is 7978 So. and 1300 E. in Sandy, just west of the Gold’s gym. Thank you so much for your time.
