Panelist Stuart Melling summed up Log Haven best by saying, “If people only have one night in town and they want the ‘Utah experience’ I send them to Log Haven.” This venerable restaurant situated (dare we say nestled?) in the confines of Millcreek Canyon is mountain dining at its finest. But the word “venerable” only applies to the stately log cabin built more than a century ago. The restaurant within is appropriately cozy but the food on the tables remains daring and exciting—changing with the seasons and wherever Chef Dave Jones’ latest passion takes him. (His latest? Foraging.) Wild game and hearty alpine cuisine mash-up with Asian techniques and flavors. In-season ingredients and impeccable service from a veteran staff ensure an evening to savor. “The atmosphere is quintessential Utah and, sure, they’ve been around forever, but they aren’t resting on their reputation,” says panelist Lydia Martinez.
