Franck’s Angel Cafe

Franck’s Angel Cafe

Jul 9, 2016

Angel’s Cafe is located not far from Brighton High School in suburban Holladay, Utah.  I found it by chance, as it is off the somewhat beaten path in Ft. Union Blvd.  The front of the building appears as if it has gone through some changes over the years.  Although the restaurant is reported on Urbanspoon and other sites as being Franck’s Angel...

China Grill

China Grill

Jul 2, 2016

Strolled on in to China Grill in Cottonwood Heights a few months ago for a quick Chinese lunch.  Chinese Grill is located off of Van Winkle near Snyder’s Meat Market and The Store.  Upon first glance there isn’t a whole lot of excitement or anything that would entice the hungry lunch seeker to enter.  Being that it has close proximity to my work, I...

Thai Orchid

Thai Orchid

May 30, 2016

Thai Orchid remained hidden from me for the entire time I have worked at Instructure.  Its located in Cottonwood Heights in a small strip mall by The Store and Snyder’s Meats.  I aimlessly went out for lunch and found them so I decided to give them a try. There was no one in the restaurant when I arrived at 12:15, which was a bad sign.  I went ahead and...

La Casa de Mole

La Casa de Mole

Jan 21, 2016

Two trips in the last 7 days has me convinced and sold on the greatness of La Casa de Mole.  This is the 3rd restaurant that I have known to occupy this space in Cottonwood Heights, but not because of lack of good food.  Siracusa’s put out a good product when they were there.  If the success of a restaurant was dependent on strictly their food, then La...

Cottonwood Heights Cafe

Cottonwood Heights Cafe

Nov 14, 2015

It was the train that caught my eye.  Constantly on the lookout for new places to eat, Cottonwood Heights Cafe certainly has the local diner look as you drive in.  There is an average sized parking lot in the back, and we got the last spot, so that was definitely a good sign as I pulled in for my first visit a month or so ago. I’m not sure if this was the...

Laid Back

Laid Back

Mar 29, 2015

New to Cottonwood Heights is Laid Back, and Hawaiian poke cuisine.  Poke is a typical raw seafood salad often served as an appetizer in Hawaii.  I like to think of it as just all the good stuff often found in sushi, but without it all rolled up. I arrived just a week or so after they opened, so they were letting all of their guests sample the different types of...

Copper Kitchen

Copper Kitchen

Feb 18, 2015

The word Copper is quickly becoming the Pavlov’s dog to my appetite.  I just have to hear the word “copper” and I immediate get hungry.  Newly opened Copper Kitchen is the third member of the Copper Trinity in Salt Lake City joining Copper Onion and Copper Commons.  (For the record Copper Creek Pub and Grill is also fabulous but unrelated)...

H&D BBQ

H&D BBQ

Dec 24, 2014

  It is with mixed feelings that I write this review.  H&D BBQ just opened up on Fort Union in the space previously occupied by Cucina Vanina.  While I’m sad that one of my favorite Italian places just closed up, I was excited to have a new BBQ option open up in Holladay close to my work. Pretty straight forward menu board that you would expect...

Bandit’s American Grill

Bandit’s American Grill

Dec 20, 2014

  Bandit’s American Grill is a welcome addition to the Old Mill area of Holladay.  Serving both the Corporate offices of the area, as well as the ski crowd heading up to the resorts for the winter, it certainly is nice to have another sit down service place for lunch close by.  Bandit’s stays true to their name and offers “American”...

New York Take & Bake Pizza

New York Take & Bake Pizza

Dec 3, 2014

  New Take and Bake pizza place up in the Cottonwood Heights / Holladay area.  I found them on Groupon and went in for a pizza to take home.  Had a nice conversation with the owner.  Besides their pizza offering, they also salads and pastas along with various sauce options to take with you.  Fans of Michelangelo will be familiar with it, as that is where...
