Hatch Family Chocolates

Jan 30, 2013

Hatch Family Chocolates has been open in The Avenues since 2003.  You may have heard of the show The Little Chocolatiers on T.V.  Well that is based on this store.  The location changed about 2 years ago, and now they operate just a block from LDS Hospital.  I’m going to take a quote from the Hatch Family Chocolate Website on their hot chocolate because...

Zinmaster and you would have to put a picture of Phil Jackson on the wall.  Zenburger and the only choice would be a picture of a cow.  And in my book, anytime you have a picture of a cow on the outside of your burger or steak joint then you are basically a winner.  Cow Picture = Win.  No Cow Picture = Lose.  Just how good is Zenburger though?  Well there are...

Bombay House

Finally I made it to Bombay House.  I feel that I gained a ton more credibility by coming here.  I just recently became a fan of Indian cuisine, so I felt it my duty to visit what many consider to be the best Indian food in the valley.  What do I think?  Until I try a few other places, I’m not going to crown them just yet.  But I’m going to give...

HillStone is one of the classiest places I’ve been to in a long long time.  From the outside entrance of the restaurant to the inner reception area, HillStone gives you full visibility to pretty much their entire operation.  As you can see from the upper photo, you can see right back into the preparation area.  I just stood there after dinner for a few...

The day before leaving Salt Lake City for a Phoenix business trip, my wife and I went for a drive up into the Suncrest neighborhood in Draper, Utah.  The view from South Mountain was like looking out of the plane of a window down towards a thick layer of clouds, only we were not in a plane, but looking down on the Salt Lake Valley.  The inversion pollution was...

My wife and I were looking into the direct Salt Lake City to Paris, France flight that Delta has leaving every Friday.  The round trip ticket will run you around $1800, unless you want to fly first-class, which will run you $18,000.  We have all heard how good French pastries are thanks to the Griswold Family and Piixar’s Ratatouille. (mildy kidding).  Up...

The Garage

The Garage

The Garage embodies everything in a restaurant that I try to review on this blog.  It is off the beaten path, most of you may never have heard of this place.  And inside, you will find absolute treasures like the fried Mormon Funeral Potato Balls.  The Garage has been around for  50 years actually as a bar up in North Salt Lake on Beck Street.  Only for the...

Village Baker

As part of my season of discovery in the valley of the Great Salt Lake, I went due West from my office during lunch time and came upon the Village Baker.  I really wanted Village Baker to be located next to a butcher, and a candlestick maker, because the tastes I discovered inside were nursery rhyme good.  Naturally at my office this morning, around 11 am the...

Brio Tuscan Grille opened a few months ago at Fashion Place Mall right between Nordstroms and H&M.  I first visited Brio in St. Louis where I went several times for lunch.  I was excited to see them come to Salt Lake City.  If you are in the mood for some great tasting pasta, then this is a step up from their neighbors to the South at Cheesecake Factory....
