But did you know Salt Lake City has a pretty serious foodie scene to rival the rest? Check out this underrated area and get ready to eat your heart out.
If you’re seeking the perfect fine dining destination, look no further than Log Haven. As its name suggests, it’s housed in a rustic log cabin, evoking a cozy and intimate vibe. It also boasts an impressive wine list and unique entrees including bacon-wrapped elk strip loin and sake-marinated fish.
With renowned chefs Paul Chamberlain and Logen Crew at the helm, this modern eatery offers everything from hamachi crudo and dim sum to dungeness crab dumplings and brick roasted chicken for dinner. Brunch offerings include banana bread french toast, smoked salmon toast, and a marbled eggs “banh mi.”
There are plenty of sandwich shops in town, but Feldman’s has risen quickly to the top since its opening in 2012. Sloppy Joes, reubens, and Rachels are its lunch specialties, and early birds can get a mean bagel and lox or egg sandwich for breakfast. The homemade desserts are nothing to sneeze at, either: grab a blintz or piece of red velvet cake to go.
