We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Salt Lake City Restaurant Listings

Each morning as I sail down the 600 South off-ramp into the heart of downtown, I see a billboard that reads “Iggy’s? … Or What’s for Dinner?”

It’s a good ad—for Iggy’s or anyone else. Because, and I’m drawing on personal experience here, it’s the nagging question, “What’s for dinner?” that forces about 96.7 percent of us to eat out. Sure, a special birthday, anniversary or big promotion at work may send you out for a night on the town. But, typically, we all have a few favorite locations on our dining GPS—places to land when we can’t possibly imagine whipping up another meal at home.

This year’s Dining Guide reacquaints you with your favorite little haunts but introduces you to plenty of new restaurants, as well. Utah’s dining landscape is hardly a Xeriscape. It’s blooming with more and more ethnic spots, vegetarian choices and places ranging in price from $1 home-style tacos to meals that might nibble at the edges of your 401(k).

We’ve gone zany for pastries this year. The cover photo features adorable chef Sven Neergaard from Scandia Kaffee House on 900 East. Inside, Stephen Dark introduces you to multitalented pastry chef Martin Perham.

Dining critic Ted Scheffler lists five newcomers to watch and takes you behind the scenes at Uintah’s Beehive Cheese, where perfect chemistry and proper aging result in nothing short of cheese-as-art.

Ted McDonough rates the outdoor taco stands; Jamie Gadette shows you how to hold your own as a vegetarian among the brawniest of meat eaters. Kate Pappas looks at an issue all diners wonder about: cursed locations.

Eating is as American as, well, apple pie. So, go ahead—check out our nearly 1,000 restaurant listings and then ... eat something!
