Eva’s Boulangerie

The Eva’s Bakery on Main Street has done more for connecting Salt Lake to Paris since the direct Delta flight became available a few years ago. Don’t have the cash to get to a boulangerie in the City of Light? Come here, we say. Once inside, you’ll forget you’re stateside anyhow. Owner, Charlie Perry, has quite simply nailed it. The simple breads [made, literally, from only organic flour, water, and salt] and delicious pastries, [made, literally, of every delicious thing you can imagine] are incredible. The concept here is simple: do like they do in ol’ Paname. Stop in for a quick baguette and ‘sweet’, head in to dine, have some lunch, or stop for a cup of coffee. Think of this as the neighborhood market that you frequent, but without the effort. It’s precisely what we’ve been waiting for in the neighborhood; a place to get comfy with a book and a treat, where you won’t be rushed out some hours and lattes later. Come in for all three meals, then come back…Ms. Ruby runs the joint, and her smile is well worth the 4th visit.

Items at the top of our list: the Annelle [a portable baked crème brûlée bit of heaven, baked with bees wax and buttered rum]; the Tart [ a fancy pistaccio cobler baked in tart with red wine]; and seriously…shut up about the bakers pies. I’m moving my office to the table in the corner. It’s where I belong.

Back in the day, the Gin + Tonic was a beverage mixed in the tropics by British military officers to make anti-malarial quinine’s bitter properties a bit more palatable (and its imbibers predictably more shit-faced in the process). Quinine’s also a mild muscle relaxant, upping the chill factor...

3 Cups | Blazin' Hot Coffee

Coffee shop design has taken a clean, bright turn over the last few years. Makes us want to spend our days chatting and sipping for hours on end. Rather than small, dark spaces with a few mismatched couches, we're looking squarely at joints like this: 3 Cups in Holladay...

Hell's Backbone | Heaven to Earth to Fork
4/18/2017 | V. Ulibarri
The farm-to-fork movement is quickly gaining traction, and for a good reason - our health. It's a very old concept which takes us (way) back to our roots (literally) of eating local, unaltered vegetables, fruits and meats. A true pioneer of the farm-to-fork initiative, Hell’s Backbone grill is go...
