Salt Lake City Dining

When thinking of large cosmopolitan cities, you immediately conjure images of the best fine dining.  You’ll be pleasantly surprised to find that dining in Salt Lake City is just as amazing.  The quantity of award winning restaurants in this city is impressive. 

Best Barbecue
Among the highly rated establishments is “Q 4 U Hickory Smoked Barbecue.”  It has received an incredible number of awards and accolades by both national and international magazines.  It’s definitely home to the best barbecue in the United States.  The décor is warm and inviting and the scents are beyond sublime.  You’ll find that the live entertainment adds to what’s an already wonderful experience.  You’ll want to order the rib platter.  It’s the signature dish and everyone’s favorite.  With each bite you taste the special spices and secret recipe sauce.  Choose among fabulous side dishes like creamy cole slaw, collard greens or yams.  The good news is that you can purchase a bottle of the sauce to bring back home. 

Tip:  With all that good southern style food, it’s hard to leave room for dessert.  But you must try the sweet potato pie.  It’s smooth, silky and sweet enough to tantalize your every sense.  If it doesn’t tickle your fancy, opt for the cherry cobbler.  It’s made fresh daily and topped with meringue. 

For true romantic dining in Salt Lake City, the Log Haven is a dream.  And you guessed right.  It has received commendations year after year for its food, its wine list and its décor.  This lovely eatery is located in a log mansion surrounded by aromatic pine trees, scenic waterfalls and colorful flora.  It’s just minutes away from downtown, but gives travelers the best of the Wasatch Forest.  If you’re here in the summer you’ll have the opportunity to dine on the patio.  But if it’s cold and snowing, you can sit by a cozy fireplace.  The dining salon is elegant although the furnishings are rustic.  You’ll find the contrast quite inviting.  The menu is as outstanding as the site itself.  Start with the fried calamari or Dungeness crab cakes.  Follow with steak and lobster or grilled American pork loin.  The latter is paired with coconut rice and a sauce made with guava.  If you’re the adventurous type, go for the grilled Bison.  It’s tender and juicy.  And for an ending to a perfect meal, why not try the bread pudding drenched in brandy, caramel and pecans.  You’ll rave about it.   

Dining in Salt Lake City also allows visitors to taste flavors from other parts of the globe.  A popular haunt among locals is Tuscany, another recipient of prizes and acclaims with the charm and ambience of a Tuscan villa.  The stone-made fire place in the bar area is one of the beautiful features.  And the Italian cuisine served here is beyond words.  Everything from the pastas to the risottos is made fresh daily and prepared with every attention to detail.  The list of specialties includes steaks and seafood as well.
