From Eden to Ogden
Harley & Buck's (801-3924-1384, HarleyandBucks.com), formerly located in Eden, Utah, has moved to 2432 Washington Blvd. in Ogden. Aside from the location, not much has changed at the restaurant, which continues to offer solid American cuisine, including Prime rib on Fridays and Saturdays, all-you-can-eat ribs on Wednesdays, cioppino on Tuesdays, plus a well-constructed wine list. Harley & Buck's also hosts wine-pairing dinners regularly; stay tuned here for updates.
All That is Copper
Ryan Lowder, owner-chef of The Copper Onion and Copper Common, is extending his copper-hued kingdom with the opening of Copper Kitchen (4640 S. 2300 East, 385-237-3159, CopperKitchenSLC.com). It's located in the shiny new Holladay Village Plaza, which also hosts new iterations of Taqueria 27, Caputo's Market & Deli and other independent-only retail shops and businesses. Copper Kitchen has a boisterous brasserie feel to it—a big, bustling eatery featuring the type of food that has made so many so fond of Lowder's other restaurants: steak frites, braised lamb shank, duck confit croquettes, beef bourguignon and noodles, and lots more. If early customer enthusiasm is an indication of things to come, it looks as if Lowder and his crew may have another copper-colored hit on their hands.
