Even Stevens

Feb 9, 2015

  Even Stevens first caught my attention when reviewing an online article of Salt Lake City’s best reuben sandwiches.  3 of the top 5 I expected to see in 9th South Delicatessen, Siegfrieds, and Feldman’s Deli, but then I saw Even Stevens on the list, and I’ve never even heard of them!  When I checked out their website, I noticed that...

One of the things I enjoyed most about Miami Beach were the bicycle rentals that could be found throughout the city.  For $10 bucks you can rent a bicycle and ride it anywhere for 2 hours.  The traffic laws on Miami Beach are very conducive to cyclists as well.  Towards the end of my 2 hour block, I came upon a rental station and this place caught my eye,...

  We started day number 2 of our New Orleans trip over on Decatur St. and the French Market.  After getting some early morning beignets from Cafe Du Monde, we had a great albeit cold time walking through the French Quarter and market place.  Finally we happened upon Central Grocery and the home of the original Muffuletta that has been around since 1906 and...

  I definitely wanted to treat my first trip to the Mecca of the cheesesteak, Philadelphia, PA with preparation and reverence.  I had of course heard of all the stories around Pat’s and Geno’s as they are the founding fathers of the cheesesteak religion, but after doing my homework and consulting with some Philly locals, I learned that the best...

Katz’s Delicatessen

Katz’s Delicatessen

Dec 4, 2014

  The “World Famous” moniker is often over-used by restaurants.  These guys have a claim on that title, and they don’t need Buddy the Elf to anoint them either.  There are two things that you have to first accept and then get over fast if you are going to enjoy Katz’s.  First, the place is going to be crazy busy.  You receive a...

  Cheese!  Sweet glorious, fantastic gooey cheese!  Walking down the Ferry Market building I passed along dozens of artisan food vendors, but this is the one that grabbed my attention.  I witnessed a gal in the kitchen preparing a huge platter of cheese sandwiches to be grilled.  There was no measuring or portion cups she was using.  Just a gobs and gobs,...

New in Sandy, Utah is Togo’s Sandwiches!  Togo’s is a sandwich shop that started in San Jose, California back in 1971, and now they have opened doors just south of Scheels Sporting Goods.  In fact the area is full of restaurants that have huge followings in other states but are somewhat new to Utah.  In the same parking lot Rita’s Frozen Ice...

I had a co-worker tell me about this bistro about a mile from my office up in Holladay, but also made me swear not to go visit without him.  Upon looking up La Sage Bistro on Urbanspoon, I found something that was borderline ridiculous.  There have been 247 votes for La Sage Bistro and a whopping 97% have approved.  That’s officially the highest approval...

Jan 26, 2014

There is a new deli in town that has taken over the old space left by Johnnie Beefs over in the Fast & Easy gas station market.  The interesting thing about the name of the new place, T-pedos, is that “pedos” is the Spanish word for “farts”.  So for the Hispanic community, the deli would be called T-Farts.  All names aside though,...

The crown jewel, and the cliché of clichés is the New Year’s Resolution of wanting to lose weight and eat healthier.  I have to admit that I had the same fleeting thought run through my mind this year.  I’ve been doing a lot more cooking at home, and when I eat my self prepared food it is with a sense of pride and accomplishment.  I recently read an...
