If you have never thought of Salt Lake City as a foodie’s paradise, you’re not the only one! However, Utah is the first state in the U.S. to receive an overall 3 stars in the Michelin Travelers Guide. The Beehive State is also an emerging hub of excellent farm-to-table fare, the next chocolate capital of the U.S., recognized by the New York Times as a haven for coffee connoisseurs, and sometimes referred to as “Brewtah” by local beer lovers.
As you plan your trip to Utah, here are a few recommendations and resources from your local conference planning committee:
- Zack (Local Guides Editor) recommends Tacos Mi Caramelos for the best tacos in the State and Kiitos Brewing for the beer lovers who also appreciate sustainable brewing practices.
- Chloe (Conference Materials Editor) recommends Zest Kitchen & Bar for gluten-free, vegetarian, and organic options, not to mention cocktails like the Beet Sangria!
- Nicole (Local Arrangements Co-chair) recommends Whiskey Street for a wide selection of local brews including an array of cocktails using local High West Distillery spirits.
- Luke (Local Arrangements Co-chair) recommends Settebello for artisan pizza (save room for some amazing gelato!) and Seasons restaurant for its 100% vegan fare and locally sourced menu.
- Jessica (Social Media Coordinator) recommends Amour Café for its exquisite pastries and gelato (don’t forget to take some house-made jam home with you!) as well as Bombay House, a pioneer in introducing Salt Lake City to Indian fare.
- The pick UNANIMOUSLY recommended by the conference planning committee? Salt Lake City’s iconic Red Iguana, famous for its mole and other Mexican fare (celebrities passing through our great city are known to frequent this establishment).
