Face it: Salt Lake City’s Greeks are the backbone of our restaurant community.
This is the culture that invented hospitality, where to turn a stranger away from a meal invited the wrath of the gods. And no Utah restaurateur celebrates the Greek spirit and cuisine as well as Aristo Boutsikakis. For 10 years, he has expanded our appetite by introducing new dishes and traditions. His restaurant belongs among the best of the best. 224 S.1300 East, 801-581-0888, aristosrestaurant.com.
Jen Castle and Blake Spalding were pioneers of sustainable and local cuisine in Utah and they have never compromised or doubted their mission. So the garden has grown into a farm, and the little restaurant in the middle of nowhere has become not only an inspiration for everyone cooking in Utah, but a dining destination for people all over the country. We’re proud. 20 N. Highway 12, Boulder, 435-335-7464, hellsbackbonegrill.com
