Thanks to Blue Apron, home-cooking has never been so wholesome and convenient.

Noodling Around

Ten sensational SLC pasta and noodle dishes.

All Grown Up

Cucina turns 21 with a new chef, wine selection and more.


Encore Bistro opens at the new Eccles Theater.
I was recently given a preview of the venue, and to say I was gobsmacked would be an understatement.

Train Stop Cuisine

Cafe Sabor offers Mexican-American flavors steps from the FrontRunner.
Each is quite unique; there's nothing cookie-cutter about them.

Celebrity Chef Tour, Tuscany, and Gluten-Free Expo

Just like dining at the historic James Beard House in New York City, guests have the opportunity to mix, mingle and interact with the chefs.

East Coast Eats

Experience some of Utah's best variations on classics from back East.
Thanks in large part to Easterners who have uprooted themselves and set up shop here in Utah, it's getting easier to try a taste of those unique flavors.

Molto Veneto

Dine like a Venetian in the Beehive.
But just as much as it's a place, Veneto is also a state of mind.

Bohemian Rhapsody

Beer grub elevated.
Evidence of Bohemian's staying power.

Have It Your Way

Customization is the keyword at Mollie & Ollie.
The first time I sauntered in to Mollie & Ollie—a new downtown Salt Lake City eatery whimsically named after the owners' pet goldfish—I couldn't quite get my bearings.

Holy Gao

Finding Chinese magic at Chef Gao.
I normally consider it to be a plus when I don't see General Tso's chicken or sweet-and-sour pork on a Chinese restaurant menu.

Above Ground

Surviving 16 sometimes challenging years, Stoneground grows up.
McCarthy knows talent when he sees it, and he very smartly scooped up über-talented chef Justin Shifflett

O, Pie and Beer

Days of '47 beverage pairings for the valley's finest pies.
At Uinta Brewing Co., employees bring pies to eat while sipping Uinta brews, and a Best Pie contest is held.


Some tasty, lesser-known additions to your list of top local brunch spots.
The addition of Justin Shifflett—formerly of Metropolitan and other fine restaurants—as head chef is a good one.

Sicilian Sensation

Sicilia Mia brings homestyle Sicilian flavors to SLC.
Sicilia Mia ("My Sicily") has only been open since late March, but it has already become one of the toughest tables to get in the Holladay/Millcreek area.

Ethiopian Adventure

Mahider offers exotic flavors at bargain prices.
Plenty of vegetable-, potato- and legume-based dishes are available, along with those for meateaters

Sundance Summer

A seasonal visit to the timeless Tree Room and Foundry Grill.
It is still one of the state's most appealing and reliable dining destinations.

Summer Breezes

Patios, Decks, Rooftops and Gardens for Al Fresco Dining.
I know a lot of Utahns who like to say that they came here for the winters but stayed for the summers.
