Alexander’s Steakhouse

Alexander’s Steakhouse

Sep 1, 2014

    To my knowledge this is the first Michelin rated restaurant featured on my blog.  When you get a second, watch the video from their website. Alexander’s Steakhouse in Cupertino, California home of Apple Computers did not disappoint.  The entire experience at Alexander’s ended up being phenomenal.  As I was considering my own...

Avenues Proper

Avenues Proper

Just east of LDS Hospital in the Avenues is a building that houses both Hatch Family Chocolates as well as gastropub Avenues Proper.  I gave these guys a try before attending a Morrissey concert this Spring at the U of U.  It was a cool building and cool setting with both indoor and outdoor seating.  Avenues Proper has a lunch and dinner menu, as well as Sunday...

Pago

Pago

  Among some of the great dining options in the 9th and 9th neighborhood of Salt Lake City is Pago, which is derived from a Spanish word for a single vineyard.  Pago is an upscale American restaurant focused on locally sources and farm fresh offerings.  Even as I checked in on Facebook, I had a good buddy respond to my post that we would be eating some...

CBD Provisions

CBD Provisions

  In preparation for this week’s trip to Dallas, I was presented with 3-4 choices for dinner with some clients of ours.  I did some brief investigation on each one, but when I came to CBD Provisions, I noticed they had a pig’s head on the menu.  Decision made!  We made our way to the Joule Hotel in downtown Dallas and into the CBD Provisions...

Texas de Brazil

Texas de Brazil

Mar 30, 2014

My wife and I had an opportunity to visit Texas de Brazil at City Creek Center over the weekend.  Texas de Brazil is a Churrascaria, which is roughly translated from the Portuguese word for “Barbecue”.  The concept isn’t new to Salt Lake City, there are several others in town, and they all share common elements between them.  You take a lot of...

The normal flow of one of my reviews is starting out with a picture of the restaurant, then maybe a picture of two of the inside, then on to an appetizer, and finally the main course.  I’m going to go in reverse for this review, just because I was so excited about my entrée!  Mac and Cheese! I’m not sure if this plate of mac and cheese could get any...

Faustina

This was my second visit to Faustina, just East of City Center.  I’ve taken clients here, and tonight I wanted to treat my mom to somewhere nice.  Faustina is more of an upscale restaurant featuring a variety of pasta, steak, and seafood dishes.  They do fantastically well with many of the dishes that I sampled, while others were just okay.  Let me give...

Boulevard Bistro is a new restaurant up on Foothill Drive in front of Dan’s Market.  The building was beautiful, with both indoor and outdoor seating.  Upon entering the restaurant a few things stood out.  First, there was a huge display of gelato in the entry way.  I loved it.  Second, we were greeted right away even though the place was very busy, and...

Eva

I remember the first time I went to the Copper Onion, I had heard so much about it from friends, colleagues, and fellow bloggers.  When I finally got a chance to visit, it did not disappoint.  I can say the exact same thing about Eva.  I have had a running “Places to Visit” list on my iPhone for the past 6 months.  It started out with just 10-15...
