After an unforgettable season of eating and skiing, I’ve compiled a list of a few of my favorite things. This isn’t my “Best of Ever” list, just a compilation of delicious dishes and experiences that somehow missed making the blog but that shouldn’t be missed.
From high mountain lodges to downtown drive-thrus, there’s a burger out there for every mood. But these aren’t your mama’s Macs; today’s burgers are flavor-packed masterpieces that’ll make your mouth water. I’ve found a few new ones and listed some old faves.
Wipe the visions of Salisbury steak, mixed vegetables and mystery gravies from your mind. These buffets (it sounds better if you pronounce it boo-fay with a French accent) offer a bounty of fresh pastries, chef-inspired entrees and tricked-out treats.
Ski in for a luxe lunch that may include house made duck prosciutto, tempura green beans or head cheese. From the greens to the cocktails, everything at The Farm is sourced locally, made from scratch and irresistible.
Located in downtown Salt Lake City, Bambara is a nouveau posh American bistro where everything is good. No, really. In charge is Chef Nathan Powers, a lifelong lover of skiing, Ferraris, and a fetish for Italian bicycles.
Honeycomb Grill's menu is a delightful blend of American street food, noshy classics and playful surprises. The spacious, welcoming space is a place to take a break from skiing for families and friends.
Needing a break from bready stuffings and figgy puddings, I head to the Aerie at Snowbird for light sushi and other high elevation dishes.
Bluebird skiing, base-jumping and bourbon cocktails contribute to a superb holiday weekend in Utah.
