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

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...

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...

  Scored myself a heck of a Groupon deal last Saturday when I took my family down to the Museum of Natural History, and then to lunch at Harvest Restaurant.  For $35 we got entrance to the museum, and then a $50 dollar gift card to the restaurant. When our hostess showed us to the table, my kids were impressed with how fancy everything was.  Check out...

ZY Restaurant

ZY Restaurant

Feb 12, 2013

This meal was brought to me by the letter Z and the letter Y.  Oddly enough I wasn’t on Sesame Street, but State Street in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah.  ZY Restaurant is pronounced (zai) instead of sounding out the Z and Y separately.  ZY is an upscale food, wine, and cheese bar and the food was fantastic.  The space was particularly interesting to me....

Found this place today, and already feel comfortable ranking it among my favorite places to eat.  Of my family of 5 there were 5 solid votes that this place was awesome.  Even little Levi kept chugging down his freshly made soup.  (Disclaimer:  Levi puts anything you place in front of him in his mouth.  He’s kinda a big boy) As we got out of our van to go...

The Tuck Shop is the epitome of the types of places I love to find.  While in Phoenix, we were just finishing up our 4 day trip and on our way back to the airport.  The driver of our rental car had come to Phoenix on business various times over the past year, and he was going to take us to a place that he and found previously.  He explained that on one...
