This recent addition to the downtown Salt Lake City bar scene, from Copper Onion owners Ryan and Colleen Lowder, happens to be a great addition to the dining scene, as well. It’s a full-on, no-nonsense bar, for sure. But it’s also a bar with a full restaurant menu— and we’re not talking nachos and chicken wings. There is something for everybody, from bar snacks like housemade pickles and smoked pork rillettes to mid-size plates of pastas, salads and such, plus large entree-type dishes. One of the best Copper Common menu items is also one of the simplest: chicken croquettes, a mixture of finely minced chicken blended with cremini mushrooms, a little seasoning and some milk and cream, rolled into torpedo shapes, breaded and deep fried. The result is crispy, ridiculously addictive bites of heaven. The service is impeccable, the vibe relaxed and friendly, the beverage selection seductive, and the ambiance delightful. It’s bar food at its best.
