After covering the Salt Lake City food scene for more than a decade, we’re always asked: “So what’s the best restaurant in Salt Lak City?” The question might seem simple enough but in reality our answer is always, “well, it depends”. Are you looking for something cheap and cheerful, fancy and gourmet or don’t even want to get out of your car and whizz through a drive thru?
Which is why we’ve created this page, breaking down the question into easier to digest pieces. We’ve broken the question of best restaurant down into three main categories: cuisine, type of dish and neighborhood you’re in. Bon appetite!
