For those of you who’ve been in Utah for a while, the names Kimi and Staffan Eklund—longtime proprietors of Absolute! restaurant downtown —might ring a bell. Large, lush, heavy wooden chairs beckon you to dine indoors at Kimi’s, while the views from the outdoor deck tug at your al fresco sensibilities. You’ll want to at least share an order of toast smogen—a creamy blend of shrimp and crab meat garnished with fresh dill and served with slices of toasted baguette. On the weekends, there’s a brunch buffet, with items such as Swedish baked omelets with mushroom creme; home-style apricot and blueberry granola; lingonberry buttermilk biscuits with honey butter; and gravad lax with dill-mustard creme, chopped onion and Swedish knackbrod.
Dining/club deals may be available for this establishment at the CW Store here.
