Dining | Salt Lake City Weekly

Eklektik Avenue

Pull up a chair (and buy it!) at funky new eatery.

Brewpub Grub

Highlighting some of my favorite local food-and-beer pairings.

Échate un Taco

Munching on tacos and more at Taquería Mi Caramelo.

Midday Munchies

HSL opens for lunch and brunch.
Considering the fact that I make a living dining and writing about food and restaurants, eating out for lunch (fast food doesn't count) is, for me, a surprisingly rare treat.

You Don't Know Jack's

There's a new go-to for brews and burgers in downtown Salt Lake City.
It doesn't take much to convince me to try out a new burger joint—if you build it, I will come.

The Bold and the Bountiful

Royal India dishes up unflinching Indian fare.
When thinking of destination dining, Bountiful might not come most immediately to mind.

Battle of the Garlic Burgers

There's a reason Utah is home to zero vampires.
Google hard enough, and you'll come to the conclusion that garlic burgers made their pungent splash onto Utah's culinary scene in the 1970s.

'Cue for You

Try these bodacious barbecue hubs for Independence Day.
Independence Day in America is synonymous with fireworks and barbecue.

Nono: Yes, Yes!

Find Neapolitan pizza perfection at 9th & 9th.
And on the best day, God created pizza.

Dine With Dad

Some eating and imbibing options for Father's Day.
I can't think of a nicer spot to spend Father's Day than on the sunny patio at Tuscany.

Third of a Trio

Park City adds a new location to a restaurant family.
Café Trio's always been a breath of fresh air. But with his latest addition, restaurateur Mikel Trapp has upped the ante.

Steeped in Tradition

Old-school ways are kept alive at Beltex Meats and Tradition.
The corner of 900 South and 500 East in Salt Lake City is quickly becoming very flavorful.

The Tuscan Kitchen

A visit to long-lived Cucina Toscana.
The last time I visited and wrote about Cucina Toscana—impresario Valter Nassi was still holding court as "master of ceremonies."

Riverhorse Rising

An inviting mix of old and new at Riverhorse, Provisions and Imperial House.
I got to see Riverhorse up close and personal a couple of weeks ago when I was there to help judge Chef Wars, a charity event to benefit the Park City-based pet adoption and rescue organization, Nuzzles & Co.

Boise or Bust

Basque-ing in the bounty of western Idaho.
If you're not familiar with Boise, I'd describe it as similar to Ogden in size, scale, look and feel.

Comida a la Oaxaqueña

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo at this local Oaxacan hot spot.
As Mexicans—but not all Americans—know, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico's Independence Day.

Labor of Love

Find Middle Eastern flavors and warmth at Laziz Kitchen.
Derek Kitchen and Moudi Sbeity will forever be associated with the landmark Kitchen v. Herbert case.
