Trip to Bountiful
With the exception of Mandarin restaurant (348 E. 900 North), Bountiful doesn’t normally spring to mind as a great dining destination. But a new influx of interesting eateries is beginning to change that. Mo’ Bettah Steaks is certainly worth dropping in to for Hawaiian-style “steak plates,” as is its strip-mall neighbor, Xtreme Sushi (both located at 273 W. 500 South). But the most enticing eatery to land in Bountiful in a long time is Sego Lily Café. Situated in a charming old brick house, this is Caffe Molise owner Fred Moesinger’s second restaurant effort. Sego Lily Café features “new American Classic and Italian” cuisine, along with a very interesting wine list. At lunchtime, the focus is on salads, sandwiches and pastas such as butternut-squash ravioli and penne di Caprino. Dinnertime brings entrees such as brie-baked cod, ground sirloin meatloaf, Asian short-rib pot roast, barbecue pork ribs, and pesto chicken. Sego Lily Café is open Monday through Saturday for lunch and dinner at 305 N. Main in Bountiful. The phone number for reservations is 801-294-3327 or you can make contact online at SegoLilyCafe.com.
