Salt Lake City: Where to Eat

Salt Lake City: Where to Eat

The energetic rush of young chefs creating impressive dishes in Salt Lake City means you definitely won't go hungry. You may run into, however, some pretty quirky liquor laws.

Take notice of the "Zion Curtain," which prohibits patrons the pleasure of watching a Manhattan being mixed before a meal, since state law requires all restaurant drinks be prepared out of sight from its main floor. Just be patient, your drink will be delivered shortly.

Dealing with a few silly rules won't prevent you from partaking in excellent food and wine pairings in Salt Lake. Evan Lewandowski, Salt Lake City's hottest sommelier, brings his wine education and experience working in Alsace, France, back to Utah. He has a love of natural wine and is looking to root his own vineyards in Utah's unique climate. You'll find Lewandowski at Pago, located in the trendy 9th and 9th district. This place exceeds expectations, coupling Lewandowski's talent for wine with the creative dishes of chef Phelix Gardner.

"Pago has consistently led the charge in the realm of seasonally thinking, locally sourcing, and creatively delivering food and wine in Salt Lake City," says Lewandowski. "Owner Scott Evans' foundational philosophies redefined for our community what is truly 'good' and fit to put on a plate and in diners' glasses."

Make sure to ask for Lewandowski's signature wines available at Pago. It's a great way to truly taste local.
