Steamed Buns

Steamed Buns

Birthday dinner 2015 took me to SLC Provisions for a dinner and review.  Provisions is in the old Lugano’s building and right in front of one of my favorite new SLC bakeries in The Baking Hive.  Provisions has a nice open dining room, and is kid friendly.  I was mostly impressed with my dinner.

Provisions provided us with the token loaf of bread to get the ball rolling.  It came with some olive oil and sea salt for dipping.  There wasn’t anything extraordinary about it.  When choosing from the menu, Provisions offers a number of small plates, and then some large plates for your main entrée.  We chose a few from each so we could try a number of different things.  I’m a taster and I like tasting things.

Our first item was pictured above and that was the steamed buns.  These were excellent.  My kids didn’t want to take a bite at first, but once they did, I could see the eyebrows raise, and an immediate second bite ensued.  Yes these were yummy and a hit.  A definite standout from the small plates side of things.

The ribs were also quite tasty.  That lump of food on the left of the plate I assumed was pork, so I took a mouthful.  Nope!  Even when reviewing the menu, I still don’t know what they were.  The ribs were almost crunchy in texture, not your traditional ribs but good nevertheless.

Lobster Roll

One of my favorite small plates of the evening were the lobster rolls.  I like my sushi to have both good flavor but also texture.  These satisfied both requirements.

Buttermilk Fried Chicken

On to the big plates, this plate of fried chicken was on point.  Deliciously fried chicken with a red win vinegar glaze.  The veggies were awesome as well.  Even though this was my daughter’s plate, daddy had to help out.

Beef Tenderloin

The steak was also a hit at the table.  It came on a bed of fingerlings potatoes and was topped with a herb emulsion and pickled red onions.  It was a well done plate.

Pork Chop

The final dish of the evening was the one I ordered for myself.  Coincidentally looking at their online menu I don’t see it listed in their large plates offering, but that is actually probably a good thing.  This was a miss for me.  It had a tangerine glaze that was supposed to be the sweet element of the pork chop, but I didn’t like it.  It was prepared well, but flavor was a bit off.

Spiced Beignets

Those fans of well prepared and not overly sweet desserts will like this one.  Definitely not your Cafe du Monde style beignets but tasty all the same.  They were gone almost as soon as they hit the table.

There you have it.  SLC Provisions.  The service was great and the service was definitely quality.  All the dishes were for the most part good or very good.  I was looking for the “wow” moment and didn’t get it, so for that reason, I may not be back for a while in lieu of adventuring out to other places.  Provisions is fine for locals looking for a nice place for dinner, and an upscale atmosphere.  Be prepared to spend about $10 bucks for the small plates and $30 for the large ones.  You can see the dinner menu here.

  1. This is the best restaurant in SLC at the moment. You either hit it on a night that Tyler wasn’t cooking or you have bad taste.

      I don’t know if I agree with the notion there is a “best” restaurant in SLC. I think you can make the case to put SLC Provisions in a top 25. It was definitely quality, but the best?

      There are other restaurants such as Pago, Forage, Alamexo, Loghaven, Bambara, Copper , that do a great job too in the upscale fine dining category.

      What dish is your favorite there?
