Dining Awards Success

720
Face it: “Best” is a moving target, especially when it comes to the restaurant business. There are so many variables. Chefs and servers come and go. Menus change for the better or worse. Businesses expand too quickly. A concept gets stuck in a rut as food trends evolve. People get tired, cooks get bored and diners get jaded.

And attaining excellence in the restaurant business means more than serving great food. The great food must be served graciously and knowledgeably in a pleasant if not delightful space. These days, there’s an additional requirement: Food must be sourced conscientiously and carefully.

So, even though some restaurants have achieved excellence so many times we have named them to our Hall of Fame, it’s a bumpy road to the top. One year a restaurant may peak; the next year it’s in the middle of the pack. After careful review and much discussion, here’s our list of the Utah restaurants that hit the top in 2015.
