Copper Common

At Copper Common, "bar food" is great food

By Ted Scheffler
POSTED // Apr 14,2014 - I don’t normally write about bar food because, well ... it’s bar food. Sure, there are bars with great food—the bars at places like Bambara, Ruth’s Chris, Wild Grape Bistro, Tuscany and a few others come to mind. But, those are all attached to restaurants; they are not bars first and foremost.

By Ted Scheffler

Elevated Eats at Alta, Brighton, Snowbasin and Deer Valley

No need to pack a lunch box when you head to these resorts

By Ted Scheffler
POSTED // Mar 10,2014 - When I moved to Utah in the early ’90s, eating at local ski areas was, for the most part, merely a matter of necessity. One needs fuel for skiing and boarding the incredible terrain here. But it wasn’t something I usually relished.

From Scratch

New downtown eatery lives up to its name with pizza perfection

By Ted Scheffler
POSTED // Feb 25,2014 - For the past few years, I’ve noticed that more and more restaurant menus are littered with terms like “homemade,” “housemade” and “from scratch.” You’ve probably seen the same. More often than not, these wholesome-sounding descriptions are accompanied by the adjectives “artisan,” “local” or “craft.”

Deer Valley Dining

Craft burgers, schnitzel, Raclette and more at Deer Valley eateries

By Ted Scheffler
POSTED // Feb 18,2014 - Where upscale dining is concerned, Deer Valley boasts an embarrassment of riches, with venues such as The Glitretind, Royal Street Cafe, Cena, Apex, Seafood Buffet, The Mariposa and others. This ski season, I’ve visited three of Deer Valley’s best dining destinations: one old, one new and one somewhere in-between.

Gourmandise The Bakery

SLC's Gourmandise offers much more than baked goods

By Ted Scheffler
POSTED // Feb 10,2014 - The admonishment to “stop and smell the roses” may be a well-worn cliché, but it’s also often worthy advice. Maybe “stop and smell the baked goods” is better advice, especially when you’re in the vicinity of Gourmandise The Bakery.

Alamexo Mexican Kitchen

The new Alamexo is reborn with upscale south-of-the-border fare

By Ted Scheffler
POSTED // Jan 24,2014 - In January 2012, I reviewed the then-new Zy restaurant. I won’t beat a dead horse, but I found the food at Zy to be confusing. There were more misses than hits, and some dishes simply puzzled me.

Restaurant Reviews

Below street level, Bodega offers a hideaway with delicious food

By Ted Scheffler
POSTED // Jan 20,2014 - When I lived in New York City, one of my favorite haunts was Chumley’s, a historic pub located at 86 Bedford Street in Greenwich Village.

Restaurant Reviews

Brewvies and MovieGrille offer film buffs more than movies

By Ted Scheffler
POSTED // Jan 13,2014 - As you probably know, movie theaters have been suffering from declining ticket sales for most of the past several years.
