Use Your Noodle
Conveniently located near the Murray Central Frontrunner and Trax stops, Siam Noodle Bar has opened at 5171 Cottonwood St. (801-262-1888) inside Murray Intermountain Medical Center. Operated by the owner of Tea Rose Dinner, Siam Noodle Bar offers street-vendor-style Thai food with a focus, not surprisingly, on noodles. Glass noodles, rice noodles, ramen noodles, egg noodles—there’s a noodle for everybody at Siam Noodle Bar.
Beer lovers will enjoy a new brew-tasting venue in Layton. The Layton location of MacCool’s (855 W. Heritage Park Blvd, 801-728-9111, MacCoolsRestaurant.com) has opened a beer-garden patio, which is an actual garden. The beer garden features just shy of 120 beers from near and far, and MacCool’s is also growing veggies and herbs in the garden for use in the kitchen. The Layton MacCool’s will feature monthly five-course beer dinners, each course paired with a distinctive brew.
Savor Park City
The seventh-annual Park City Area Restaurant Association’s Savor the Summit (SavorTheSummit.com) takes place Saturday, June 21, beginning at 6 p.m. For me, this is Park City’s most fun food fest, featuring a dinner table that stretches the length of Main Street, live bands and cuisine from approximately 25 participating restaurants, ranging from the Middle Eastern fare of Reef’s and Flying Sumo’s sushi, to Italian cooking from Cafe Terigo and Thai food at the Bangkok Thai on Main table. Each establishment along Savor the Summit’s Grande Table offers its own choice of dinner and beverages, with prices ranging from $40 to $150 per person. Reservations for seats at the Grande Table must be made with the individual participating restaurants. However, the live music (provided by Mountain Town Music) and the Spirit Garden (where patrons can enjoy a brew, spirits, vino and more) are open to the general public with no admission fee.
