The Heart Wants What it Wants

A Valentine's Day dining guide for the unconventional.

Old Meets New

Cannella's offers old-school charm in a new-school atmosphere.

The Heart Wants What it Wants

A Valentine's Day dining guide for the unconventional.
I used to believe that places like upscale steakhouses, swanky Italian bistros and any place with the word niçoise on the menu had the amorous eatery market cornered.

Yes, Queen

South Salt Lake's Chickqueen is here to expand your fried chicken borders.
Nearly all of the major international culinary cultures have a variation of fried chicken.

Smothered Comfort

Since 1982, Salazar's Café has been a welcome spot for Millcreek locals.
As much as I love seeing what the local talent is up to—and believe me, they're doing some amazing things that I'm dying to check out—I can't help but be drawn to those wayward local places that were part of our food culture before we even really had a food culture.

Like a Boss

Draper's Sauce Boss brings the love ... and the butter.
When I first heard about Sauce Boss opening its doors, I had to take a deep dive.

Edible Visions

Here's to another year of exploring our culinary backyard.
Right around Thanksgiving 2019, food Twitter users posted controversial food takes aplenty.

Best Dishes

A look back on the best eats of 2019.
Delicious, vibrant, diverse and entertaining as our ever-evolving restaurant scene is, it takes something special to stick in my memory after visiting that many restaurants.

Good for the Soul

Learning to appreciate winter at Pallet Bistro.
With winter chipping away at my sanity, I find that I'm drawn to places that feed the soul as well as the stomach. Because merely going out in such a drab, gray milieu is taxing all on its own, I seek out destinations that function as spiritual lighthouses in the sea of ashen fog.

Steyking a Claim

The Tavernacle flexes its gastropub muscles with The Steyk Center.
They began with two grand pianos. Now, the team behind The Tavernacle has taken their play-on-words one step further by launching The Steyk Center.

Mad About Bulgogi

Come on, get happy at South Jordan's The Angry Korean.
My wife, daughter and I decided to stop there for dinner since I had been stalking them on social media ahead of the grand opening.

Clucked Up

Pago Restaurant Group's newest member wants to make a Birdhouse in your soul.
Maybe it's because of the unfair stigma that chicken's flavor is so nondescript that it can be assigned anywhere—if you've ever said something that isn't chicken tastes like chicken, you are complicit in this slander.

Putting the 'Fun' in Funeral

Despite the morbid name, funeral potatoes are all about joy.
One of the best things about exploring the restaurants in your own back yard is getting the chance to experience cultural diversity through the universal act of chowing down.

Brunched in the Face

Have Saturday night on Sunday morning with The Tavernacle's Drag Brunch.
Utah's Sunday tone is largely governed by the church and football crowd—those who spend the day trying to combine Sabbath reflection and screaming at a TV referee.

On a Roll

Simply Sushi offers all-you-can-eat fare (with an asterisk).
The term "all you can eat" doesn't have the same air of reckless gastronomic abandon as it once did.

Dinner and a Poe

Mystique Dining at Gardner Village is the tacky night out you didn't know you needed.
I found the idea that someone who lacked the context of Utahns' everyday routine endlessly fascinating.

Deli Belly

Feldman's Deli is keeping it old school.
You can make the claim that places like Subway and Jimmy John's took their cues from the delis on American's Eastern Seaboard during the turn of the century, but they're so far removed from their source material that it's tough to make a comparison—slapping cold cuts on a bun does not a true deli make.

Higher Calling

The Roof is one of downtown's most venerated restaurants ... but is it more than just a buffet?
It was only a matter of time before I set my sights on The Roof.
