    Freshie’s Lobster Co.

    Freshie’s Lobster Co. This Friday Feature is going to be short and sweet. Because there’s not much more to say than YES PLEASE! If you have yet to enjoy a lobster roll from Freshie’s you’re missing out. Big time. I’ll admit, the price tag breaks the bank a bit ($25 for the XL, $20 for the Real Mainah, and $11 for the Tourist), but they are 100% worth it. The tender, buttery meat is dusted with herbs and placed in a toasted and buttered roll. I’m not the only one praising their glory. They received “The Worlds Best Lobster Roll” achievement at the lobster roll festival in Portland, Maine. Yup,…

    Five 5eeds

    Five 5eeds I fell in love with Five 5eeds simply by happenstance. Last summer, I was enjoying a staycation in Park City. In desperate need for lunch, my husband and I read a few Yelp reviews of Five 5eeds and decided to take a chance. Well, let me tell you, I’m glad we took that chance. Known for its local, seasonally produced Australian faire, Five 5eeds offers some of the best food you’ll find in Northern Utah. My favorite breakfast items include: Steal Cut Oatmeal, Hot Cakes, Smashed Avo on Toast, and Eggs Any Way You Like. While I have yet to try the Shakshouka, it is definitely a popular…

    Brass Smoothies

    Brass Smoothies I remember my first Brass Smoothie like it was yesterday. Honestly, before ordering I questioned how someone could justify paying so much for a smoothie. Well, after my first sip, I immediately knew the answer. I could justify paying a bit more for Brass Smoothies because they were downright DELICIOUS. I also remember thinking I was screwed, because I would be craving a Brass Smoothie everyday from there on out. What makes Brass Smoothies so good? The use the fresh, high quality ingredients. The Limelight smoothie, one of my favorites, has fresh squeezed lime juice, cashews, coconut milk yogurt, kale, banana, vanilla and almond milk. It’s a perfect…

    The Ruin

    The Ruin Even though I’m a lover of all things beer, I would never turn down a tasty cocktail. One of my favorite places to go for artisanal cocktails is The Ruin. The drinks are delicious, the staff is awesome, and the atmosphere is dark and cozy. If the cocktails on the menu don’t spike my interest, the bartenders are great at taking flavor profiles and a liquor of choice to make a drink that will almost always impress.   I also find myself returning  to Ruin because of the atmosphere. Before the late night shenanigans begin, Ruin has an intimate, darker vibe. You can sit at the bar, two…

    Harbor Seafood & Steak Co.

    Harbor Seafood & Steak Co. My new mantra: When in doubt, go to Harbor Seafood & Steak Co.. It is by far one of my favorite restaurants in Salt Lake City. Simply because the food is down right delicious. You know those places where you plan your next visit and haven’t even finished eating your current meal? That’s Harbor. It’s honestly that good. When Ian and I first tried Harbor I was convinced it wouldn’t be that good. The a la carte menu screamed the 1990’s. There’s no way such a dated menu idea (choosing 2 sides and a sauce with a protein) could taste good. Well, the chefs at…

    3 Cups

    3 Cups One of my favorite past times is visiting a coffee shop. Whether it’s to do work, meet-up with a friend, or simply relax with a cup of joe, 3 Cups is my go to coffee shop in Salt Lake. My requirements for a favorite coffee shop? Comfortable atmosphere, top notch coffee, and tasty treats. Fortunately, 3 Cups meets all of those requirements. Large glass windows results in plenty of natural lighting, making the atmosphere feel bright and welcoming. Seating is varied.  Options include intimate booths, large circular tables, bar style seating along the windows, or a large communal wooden table. If the weather is nice, seating outside is…

    White Horse

    White Horse I’m a little ashamed it took me this long to find White Horse. I guess I can blame it on that whole thing called pregnancy and taking care of a newborn. Even though I’m a little late to the game, I’m one happy Salt Laker. I found a bar that’s stunning in looks, has delicious cocktails, and food that leaves you satisfied. Honestly, it’s what Salt Lake has needed for a while. Even though I haven’t had much of the menu, what I’ve had has been tasty. The confit duck wings with gochujang, gorgonzola creme fraiche and celery fennel salad was by far my favorite. There’s nothing wrong…
