Food & Drink

Beer Bar

Plenty of brains, brews and brats to go around

By Ted Scheffler
POSTED // Apr 22,2014 - When I heard that Forage co-founder and up-and-coming celebrity chef Viet Pham was consulting with beloved Modern Family dad Ty Burrell and his Bar-X partners to create a new watering hole, my initial reaction was “Uh-oh.”

Food & Drink

Sonora's Scholarship Fundraiser

Also: Vendors & Volunteers, New Habit.

By Ted Scheffler
POSTED // Apr 22,2014 - In a time marred by so much hostility toward immigrants—especially those coming from south of the border—it’s heartwarming that Ogden’s Sonora Grill (2310 Kiesel Ave., 801-393-1999, TheSonoraGrill.com) is stepping up to embrace them. On April 10, during the restaurant’s Dining for Dollars event, 100 percent of all sales and contributions—not just proceeds—from customers dining at Sonora Grill went into the Sonora Grill Scholarship program.

SLC Sports Bars

Huddling at a squad of SLC's best sports bars

By Ted Scheffler
POSTED // Apr 21,2014 - Salt Lake City isn’t as sports-crazed as some places I’ve lived, where publicly root-root-rooting for your favorite team can be a risky proposition.

Food & Drink

Ghidotti's Remodel

Also: Top Chef Meatup, The Pig Returns

By Ted Scheffler
POSTED // Apr 15,2014 - If you haven’t visited Ghidotti’s Italian restaurant (6030 Market St., Park City, 435-658-0669, Ghidottis.com) recently, you should drop in. The lounge at Ghidotti’s has been overhauled, and it’s a great place for a nosh and libations, with an excellent menu of wines by the glass, beers and cocktails as well as pizzas, meatball sliders, artisan cheese plates, mussels in Marsala and more.

Restaurant Reviews

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.

Food & Drink

Dutton-Goldfield Wines

World-class Chardonnay and Pinot at Lodge Bistro

By Ted Scheffler
POSTED // Apr 14,2014 - Mention Alta and Snowbird to Dan Goldfield—owner/founder of Sonoma’s Dutton-Goldfield Winery—and his eyes light up. Had he not gone into the wine biz, he’d have made a helluva ski bum. He and his family relish skiing in Utah, and make time nearly every year for a stay at Alta’s Goldminer’s Daughter Lodge. The accommodations for his most recent visit were a bit more upscale, however, as he was in town to host a wine dinner at the Bistro in The Lodge at Snowbird.

Pizza Mind

On the prowl for the perfect local pizza

By Ted Scheffler
POSTED // Apr 8,2014 - For pizza lovers—and who doesn’t love pizza?—the pursuit of the perfect pie is an ongoing quest, one without end. There is always another pizza pie to try, another nice slice.

Food & Drink

A Wee Dram of Glenfiddich

Getting to know the world’s most awarded single-malt Scotch.

By Ted Scheffler
POSTED // Apr 7,2014 - To be honest, I’m not much of a Scotch whisky drinker. But that may change. I’m beginning to appreciate the craftsmanship and care that goes into making single-malt Scotch, in part due to what amounted to a master’s seminar on the stuff during a recent lunch.

Food & Drink

Market Street Broiler Closes

Also: Sweet Revenge, Brews & Tutus, Ogden Eats.

By Ted Scheffler
POSTED // Apr 7,2014 - After more than 30 years—it opened in March 1983—the Market Street Broiler on 1300 East (MarketStreetGrill.com) has closed and the property is for sale.

Food & Drink

Vote for Best New Chef Southwest

Also: Let's Get Saucy

By Ted Scheffler
POSTED // Mar 31,2014 - When Food & Wine magazine asked for my input in nominating a chef in our area for the annual People’s Best New Chef competition, it was a no-brainer. I quickly tossed Frederick Perez’s chef toque into the ring.
