Slow and Steady

How Salt Lake's Tradition wins the comfort food race.
It's a lovely space that combines a hip aesthetic with welcoming service, but is it serving up comfort food that's worth the extra coinage?

Set Faces to Stunned

Stun Cube adds some nuance to Korean comfort food.
Any time you get a proliferation of one trend or regional food, however, it can be difficult for each restaurant to set itself apart.

Come All Ye Santos

It's high time for a pilgrimage to Rose Park's Santo Taco
Such is the conquest that owners Claudia and Alfonso Brito launched to get where they are today.

World of Torta-Craft

There be giants at Salt Lake's Big Tortas—tasty, tasty giants.
Mexican bakers developed smaller loaves called bolillo and decided they had the structural integrity to house whatever meats, cheeses, veggies and sauces that they could fit between the slices.

Feel the Burn

Some spicy dishes for those who like their fireworks edible.
Your taste buds frantically try to stay on top of all the action, and your brain stops fussing about whichever neurosis du jour happens to be front and center to utter some "oooohs" and "aaaahs" of its own.

Mali's World

Treat your tastebuds to a rollercoaster ride at downtown's newest Thai eatery.
I love how the subtle, smoky heat tends to perfume my olfactory region long after I've finished, and I love how a scoop of steamed rice soaks up all the sauce that I can't get with my fork or chopsticks.

No Bambino, No Problemo

Carmine's offers up some truly excellent Italian dishes—but leave the kids at home.
We show up before the dinner rush and help our little buckaroo stay on her best behavior, which typically makes our attempt to respect everyone else's dining experience successful.

Amazing Gracie's

Celebrate summer with a gastropub that plays to win.
Dinner and drinks tend to get pushed to well after 9 p.m., and IHOP just isn't going to cut it.

Goddess Bless

Find food, growth and Pride at Central Ninth's Meditrina.
This downtown enclave has become prime real estate for residential and commercial properties, and we're seeing it develop into a quirky, rough-around-the-edges sister to its eclectic east-side counterpart at 9th and 9th.

DIY Delicious

SoSL's Ejo Korean BBQ is hands-on yum.
Knowing that, make sure you hit up Ejo with a group of people who are interested in having a good time with their meal—things could go south very quickly with people who regularly imbibe at the font of hater-ade.

Getting the Finger

Murray's Mr. Charlie's Chicken Fingers is kid-tested, Post Malone-approved.
Saying it out loud scares up a chuckle, and all that golden, fried chicken-finger goodness on their meticulously curated Instagram account has a way of luring curious diners to their door.

Upper Crust

Beaumont Bakery & Café is a love letter to butter and sugar.
No matter how far the trip, we're quick to shrug off the grocery shopping, car maintenance and other trappings of adulthood in favor of chancing upon our next favorite bake shop—we have priorities, after all.

Thai Fusion Typhoon

Worlds collide in all the right ways at Murray's Fav Bistro.
Their fusion-centric lunch and dinner menus offer a plethora of great flavors to be explored.


This year, my valentine is chocolate.
Here's a list of some of Salt Lake's finest chocolate delicacies.
