Want ghost with that? If so, this might be the place. Located in downtown Salt Lake City in the historic Rio Grande train depot—a history-filled location—rumors of a ghostly apparition with a purple aura persist, supposedly the ghost of a jilted woman who jumped in front of a train at the depot. Slammed doors, dropped dishes and eerie footsteps in the night add to the legend of the Purple Lady. But you might be too focused on your plate to be scared. Tacos, burritos, tostadas, enchiladas and chile rellenos are the order of the day, but for a real treat, try the carnitas platter and wash it down with a cold Dos Equis or the restaurant's excellent margarita. This is a favorite hang for local artists, so there’s lots of cool, funky local art to take in, as well.
