Find Neapolitan pizza perfection at 9th & 9th.

Dine With Dad

Some eating and imbibing options for Father's Day.

Third of a Trio

Park City adds a new location to a restaurant family.

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.

From bodacious burritos to tire shop grub, our annual Dining Guide has you covered.

Easter Feaster

Here's where to get your bunny brunch on.
Since I grew up in a not-very-religious family, Easter was always a bit puzzling to me. Hard-boiled eggs? Bunnies? Baskets?

Tracking Takashi

Queueing up for excellence at Utah's premier sushi restaurant.
Takashi might not, at first glance, appear to be a "special occasion" dining venue in the way that, say, La Caille, The New Yorker, Log Haven, Tuscany or The Roof Restaurant are.

Pho 2.0

Pho Saigon Noodle House births a baby brother in Murray.
I recall being cautiously excited when Pho Saigon Noodle House (2222 E. 3500 South) opened during the summer of 2013 near the Maverick Center, after an eight-year run at a previous West Valley City location.

Richey's Riches

Chef Michael Richey sets up shop on Regent Street.
It's a great time to be a restaurant critic in Utah. It seems almost like ancient history now, but around the time of the 2002 Winter Olympics, there was a spike in new and notable restaurants—many of which were opened to take advantage of the influx of tourists, as well as the publicity and marketing that swirled around hosting the Olympic games.

Raising the Bar

Utah's best eats while you're wetting your whistle.
There was a time not all that long ago when bar snacks usually consisted of items such as stale pretzels, pickled eggs and Corn Nuts.

Here's Looking at You, Kid

Goat and more at El Cabrito and Julia's Mexican eateries.
United States immigration policy has been in the news and on our minds for some time now, but has reached a boiling point with the new Trump administration.

The Ramen Report

Slurping up Jinya and Tonkotsu.
It makes me happy that, for many of us, the word "ramen" no longer automatically conjures visions of the noxious, salty, 10-for-a-buck packages of noodles pre-fried in palm- and cottonseed oil.

A Sense of Purpose

Passion for food—but not sushi—is on the menu at Ikigai.
It's a little tricky to translate to English, but the Japanese concept of ikigai has to do with purpose and meaning—a reason for being—not unlike the French phrase raison d'être.
