West Valley City residents are familiar and excited with the growth that 5600 W has experienced over the past 10 years.  New to town and opening up within a month of each other are two new quick service sandwich establishments putting down tracks in the Salt Lake City area.  Capriotti’s is one of those new places opening up in the same development shared...

Gracie’s Gastropub in downtown Salt Lake City.  Probably a bit more on the “pub” side than the “gastro” side.  Gracie’s has plenty of parking, and nice outdoor seating options as well as indoor.  This is a 21 and older only gastropub, so leave your kiddies at home.  There were a few pluses and minuses to go over, so here are...

Congratulations Versailles, you finally did it!  “World’s Most Famous Cuban Restaurant” … in Miami, Florida …. named after a famous palace outside of Paris, France.  After recommendation after recommendation of this is where the best Cuban food was, I finally decided to cave and give it a try.  I always take food recommendations...

  Been waiting to come to Vito’s for a long time.  If you want to have a discussion or debate on where the best cheesesteak sandwich is in Utah, then you can’t exclude Vito’s from that discussion.  People like to toss around DP Cheesesteaks, The Philadelphian, Moochies, or East Coast Subs as having the best.  My Philly needle still...

Today is a day of firsts.  After 3 or so years in the food blogging business and over 250 reviews, this is my first review in Utah north of Salt Lake.  I’m originally from Idaho Falls, and have lived in the Salt Lake City area for almost 20  years now.  It is a 3 hour trip from SLC to Idaho Falls, and our half way point stop has always been in Malad,...

  I’ve been to busier places before on a Monday night in the middle of summer.  Historic Main Street in Park City was exactly bustling with activity in early June.  While you don’t have the winter ski traffic or Sundance film festival going on, Park City is quite beautiful and breathtaking year round.  The altitude up in Park City makes even...

The food truck scene at my office building has been an interesting one.  I work at Old Mill in Holladay just off the I-215 exit to go up to the ski resorts.  We have 700+ people who work in our building everyday.  Across the parking lot there is an Overstock.com office building.  There are a few people who work at Overstock.com that schedule food trucks to come...

  When visiting landmark restaurants in major cities, I try my best and temper expectations.  Everything I have heard and read about Rino’s in East Boston was that it was fantastic.  Here is a picture above of the street corner where it is located.  What you don’t see here are strip malls, huge parking lots, and flashy signs and lights....

Jul 11, 2015

  Every once in a while I drive by one of my favorite places and think about the pictures and review that I did there.  One of those places, and one of the best breakfast spots in Salt Lake City is Millcreek Cafe & Eggworks.  I recommend it often and visit it often.  The other day I was scrolling through my blog and tried to locate my review, and COULD...

Venice, Italy

Venice, Italy

Jul 5, 2015

Stop number three on my European vacation took us to beautiful Venice, Italy.  Venice was as described, beautiful culture and architecture, and an experience Monica and I will never forget.  Of course I have a hidden agenda on every trip that I take, and that is centered around food.  I only fulfilled a few of my covert goals, so a return visit is going to be a...
