a new SLC restaurant coming at you today...
i am now back in san francisco after THE BEST
week visiting family in salt lake city. that place
gets better each time i go back! i loved featuring
some favorite places as well as some new ones,
like this one today. my mom and aunt and i went
out together to try a new restaurant, from scratch.
umm, this place rivals anywhere i've tried in SF,
napa, new york, etc. i'm serious. it's a new,
undiscovered GEM in salt lake! we loved
meeting chef adam, as well as the owner david...
and his cute mom who was in town helping
hostess the restaurant! this place lives up to the
name and everything is truly from scratch...
they even have a flour mill in the back! from the
pizza dough to the hamburger buns, they make
things in-house and you can taste the difference.
such high quality, incredible food. it is right on
the inside loop of gallivan so it's easy to miss, but a
great location for all things downtown. also, the burger.
no words! more on that below. warning: mouth watering!
^^ why does my mom have to be the cutest?
^^ such a great space...
i love the feel of it!
^^ the roasted beet salad...to.die.for. it has arugala,
golden + purple beets, pecans, goat cheese, and
the best vinaigrette dressing. and you know i
live for pretty food presentation. lately i'm hooked
on beet salads and this one was a winner.
^^ appetizers: we tried the charcuterie platter...
the bread is house made, and the meats and cheeses
are all local. my favorite part was the honeycomb.
^^ the pizzas are made & fire roasted right when you order
them, so they're incredibly fresh and flavorful. our great
waiter andrew recommended the fennel sausage pizza, and
it was a home run. next time i want to try the white out!
^^ okay, the burger. i was expecting this place to be
all about the pizza (which was incredible), but this is
the show stopper. and to back me up on that, it just
won best of state for the burger. this place hasn't even
been open a year and it won best of state! we obviously
had high expectations for it, and they were exceeded.
i like burgers, but only if they are great. this one is
incredible. i don't even know if i can describe the
flavors, but lucky i don't live in salt lake because i'd
come weekly for this. please promise to try it!
^^ i love these two! i'm so lucky to have not
only the cutest mom, but cutest aunt. we all
went running together in the canyon that morning
and then had a great meal at night! my kind of ladies.
^^ chef adam doing his thing.
^^ loved all of the waiters + chefs!
they know their food. our waiter described
each dish so in depth i felt like i had
already tasted it before trying it. you
can definitely trust their recommendations.
^^ the flour mill right in the back!
^^ two BABES.
when you're in salt lake city be sure not
to miss this place. we'll be back!
