Salt Lake City's Food Scene

Jan 15, 2015

Once regarded as a culinary backwater, Salt Lake City now boasts cutting-edge restaurants, bars, and cafes that garner national attention. Chefs here have embraced the values of the local food movement and other food trends, serving everything from bone marrow to duck eggs and elm seeds, and diners relish the results.
