    Aristo's has deeper SLC roots, and is $$ or even $$$, so not your typical dirbag Moab joint (although I love those too!!)
    Try the Octopus.
    This just opened on the 14th, but here are Yelp reviews of their SLC location (s)

    Wish I had known this last week. Hard to find a good meal in that town. Should have tried the szechuan place that someone recommended. Ended up preparing most of our own meals anyway, since we know we cook better and a LOT healthier than most restaurants.

    Snyder brothers with a Y, Beltex Meats, or Harmons. I've cooked steaks for a few guys nights and they have always come from Harmons and been really nice.
    And as always, cast iron+broil beats grill IMO.

    To go along with the bump, some new places to check out:
    Trestle Tavern
    Spitz (fantastic)
    Este Deli
    Mom's Kitchen

    I'll try to add some new ones:
    Finn's Cafe for brunch. Market Street Grill/Oyster bar also has a legit brunch
    The Pie for good ol' fashioned greasy pizza and beer
    X1 million for Red Iguana. Blue Iguana is good, too, but it's NOT the same place.
    Squatters downtown has good beer and food
    Grew up ~1 mile from Royal India in Sandy and I'm spoiled for Indian food forever now
    Kyoto is pretty good for sushi (at least it was 6 years ago when I ate there last). Yellowfin in Sugarhouse isn't as good, but has a better atmosphere IMO
    If you're in the burbs, Village Baker is a favorite for a quick lunch

    And to think that's a post he chose not to delete.

    I hope he gets back on all 4 wheels and fires his account back up.

    I live downtown so apologies for the bias, this may not be as useful to out-of-towners staying near the canyons. Some of my favorite new(ish) stuff:

    Pho Thin (Sugarhouse) - bomb pho / Vietnamese, inexpensive, not bad atmosphere either.
    HSL (Downtown) - spendy but super good
    Proper Brewing/Burger (S Downtown) - cheap food, solid beers, cheap ski ball.

    Random older but possibly less widely enjoyed (?) stuff I like:

    Stoneground (Downtown) - good, inexpensive Italian in a nice atmosphere
    Skewered (Downtown) - bomb Thai food, cheap ass lunch specials. I saw one of the Dorais bros picking up food here so it gets the elite hardman patronage as well.
    Niche (Downtown) - low key classy, medium spendy, food is always great.
    Dick & Dixies (Downtown) - one of the only bars that feels like an actual bar to me, being from the east. Cheap good beer (not just swill).

    Classics everyone probably knows that I still think are very good:

    Red Rock (Downtown) - good food + beer, their high point beer has improved a lot over the past 18 mos imo, and the food is always solid.
    Desert Edge (Downtown) - same as above but only lowpoints. Cheap pitchers + food.
    Takashi (Downtown) - hands down the best sushi in the mountain west, don't @ me.

    Places that I think are overrated but everyone else likes:

    Squatters (Downtown) - boo, hiss. These guys lobby to keep the draft beer capped at 4% ABV. Their beer and food sucks. Their vibe sucks. Fuck Squatters.
    Bayou (S Downtown) - cool beer menu but otherwise zzz, food is meh and everything is 25% too expensive.
    Beer Bar (Downtown) - ok I go here a lot but it's still overrated and beers are way overpriced.
    Everything in the canyons except Molly Greens, which owns.


    Most improved:

    Campfire (Sugarhouse) - when I lived near there it was sort of a dump, a lot nicer inside now. Very cheap food, chill patio when the weather is nice.

    I've tried Yellowfin a few times with no success, bad service both times, ok sushi.

    Is Harmons a Grocery store or a dedicated Butcher shop.
    My searches show 3 locations as Grocery store?

    Higher-end grocery store. The one on 100S is pretty swanky, not sure about the others.

    Grocery store chain that is a solidly superior to the average megamart but far less pretentious than Whole Foods. It was recommended because most locations sell dry-aged prime beef that is cut to order.

    Both Draper locations definitely are.

    Do not confuse The Pie with The Pie Hole, I just realized I have done this for years. The Pie Hole is gross and I couldn't figure out why people were constantly recommended it.

    The Market on Main has Afghani food in the back of a convenience store, it's worth a try for downtown peeps. Between 200 and 300.

    I hardly travel down to the valley to eat, but when I do, I go to one of the following:
    1) Italian: Valter's $$$$
    2) Sushi: Takashi $$$$
    3) Greek: Aristo's $$
    4) BBQ: Pat's BBQ $
    5: Chinese: New Golden Dragon $

    Also, when driving home from LCC, I go to Wing Coop $

    Tried R&R BBQ yet? Best in the valley, IMO.

    Thanks. The menu looks good. It is right near Maier's Meat Processing? Don't get to S. Jordan much, but I do go to Maier's to get elk Tucker.
