  • Chef Milo Carrier has created a destination in a small, charming house at the top of the Marmalade neighborhood. A fresh approach and locally sourced ingredients are the root of a menu that bridges fine and casual dining, at once

  • Avenues Bistro

    This tiny antique storefront has a new owner—Chef Mike Ritchie, proprietor of Fireside on Regent. The place has been decluttered and the menu has been revamped, but the charm is intact. Rabbit pot pie, lobster beignets, Moroccan-spiced duck and crafted chicken hash are some of the upscale yet homestyle dishes on the menu.

  • Blue Iguana This colorful downtown restaurant has a charming downstairs location and patio, and has been a Salt Lake staple for decades. Enchiladas, tacos, and “jengo” nachos—piled high on a platter—are all good, as are the margaritas. A nifty addition:

  • Blue Lemon’s sleek interior and high-concept food have city style. Informal but chic, many-flavored but healthy, Blue Lemon’s unique take on food and service is a happy change from downtown’s food-as-usual.

  • This biryani mainstay is sublimely satisfying, from the wise-cracking Sikh host to the friendly server, from the vegetarian entrees to the tandoor-grilled delights. No wonder it’s been Salt Lake’s favorite subcontinental restaurant for 20 years. 

  • Meat, meat and more meat is the order of the day at this Brazilian-style churrascaria buffet.

  • Cafe Niche

    Anytime is the best time to eat here. Food comes from farms all over northern Utah and the patio is a favorite in fine weather.

  • The old Eagle building is a gorgeous setting for this city fave, with outdoor dining space and much more. Sibling wine bar BTG is under the same roof. Call for hours.

  • Salt Lake Dining, Caputos, Artisan support pack

    A great selection of olive oils, imported pastas, salamis and house-aged cheeses, and the largest selections of fine chocolate in the country. The deli menu doesn’t reflect the market, but is a reliable source for meatball sandwiches and such.

  • Pastries and a few hot dishes make this a fave morning stop. For lunch, try the herbed goat cheese on a chewy baguette.

  • Most dishes come in either "hearty" or "petite" portion sizes. This means you can enjoy a smoked salmon pizzetta or fried rock shrimp appetizer and then a petite order of fire-roasted pork chops with adobo rub and black bean-corn salsa. Expect crowds.

  • Copper Kitchen

    A welcome addition to Holladay, Ryan Lowder's Copper Kitchen reprises his downtown Copper Onion and Copper Common success with variations. The menu is different, but the heartiness is the same; the interior is different but the easy, hip atmosphere is the same, and the decibel levels are very similar.

  • Good pub fare and freshly brewed beer make this a hot spot for shoppers, the business crowd and ski bums.
