Stoneground Kitchen

Stoneground Kitchen

Aug 23, 2014

Just when I thought I had a handle at all the good pizza places in town I find a new one.  Stoneground Kitchen is on the top floor of a building across the street from the Salt Lake City Library along 4th South.  A good childhood friend of mine had recommended this place for dinner, and it was a place that both him and his wife and remembered from their college...

Nuch’s Pizzeria and Restaurant

Nuch’s Pizzeria and Restaurant

Feb 19, 2014

It was my second attempt to visit Nuch’s and try their pizza.  The first time was after I had lost a ping-pong match to a co-worker (pictured above) and owed him lunch.  Unfortunately I had no idea that Nuch’s isn’t open on Monday’s, so for my readers out there, keep that in mind.  However, you know the ole saying that good things come...

I’m going to go out on a limb and say that most of the places that I review here, someone, somewhere has driven by or tried before.  I don’t know if many of you have been to this next place, which is why I’m going to really enjoy telling you about it.  I’ll have to be honest though, it will be just a bit off the beaten path for many of...

Cucina Vanina

Cucina Vanina

I happened into Cucina Vanina purely on a last second Peyton Manning-esque audible.  My heart was already set on going to Teriyaki Grill, but this place caught the corner of my eye with the “Open” sign, plus I have never been here before and had some time, so I decided to give it a shot. I enjoyed the atmosphere here.  They had Pandora radio going...

Cafe Trio

Cafe Trio

Apr 16, 2013

As I was walking up to the Cafe Trio door for lunch today, I wondered to myself why they repeated the word “Cafe” three times.  Was it some Hebrew thing where if you repeat a word 3 times, it adds maximum emphasis like “Verily, Verily, Verily I say unto you”?  Or was it like Dorothy clicking the ruby slippers three times and repeating...

Per Noir Trattoria

Per Noir Trattoria

Mar 19, 2013

Per Noi Trattoria is a great find in the middle of a large residential area in Sugarhouse.  The inside isn’t anything overly glamorous, just a comfortable, family feel to the restaurant.  Nice enough for date night, but not so fancy where you would feel uncomfortable bringing along the kiddos.  For the quality of the Italian food you get, the prices were...

Brio Tuscan Grille

Brio Tuscan Grille

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....

Siragusa’s Taste of Italy

Siragusa’s Taste of Italy

Oct 13, 2012

I love me some Italian food.  Seems like good Italian food is tough to come by in Salt Lake City.  Mexican restaurants are a dime a dozen in this town.  You can get a street taco pretty much anywhere, but if you want some decent pasta or lasagna, then your options are limited.  That is why when I read about Siragusa’s in Taylorsville recently and the good...

Santa Pasta

Santa Pasta

Sep 20, 2012

Santa Pasta or “Holy” Pasta in Spanish caught my eye just across the street from WalMart and just south of Granatos on 300 W and 1400 S.  This is their second location in the downtown Salt Lake area.  You may have already recognized them from having a store just behind the Cafe Rio on 400 South.  Santa Pasta seems to have carved out a niche of great...
