SLC - help

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
We booked an early flight into Salt Lake planning to take advantage of the ski free day of arrival special. Unfortunately, it's not offered at the time of our trip so....does anyone have a good restaurant suggestion in Salt Lake for lunch? We have tons of time and can't check into the condo until late afternoon!!

I have suggestion that may kill a couple of hours plus help you adjust to altitude. Take a ride up to Park City and hit Main St. Lots of places to eat and you will be at 7000 feet so that should help with adjusting to altitude. For Lunch , Wasatch Brew Pub is good. More expensive but good is Cafe Terigo. You could also drive up to Deer Valley and sample the food at the Snow Park Lodge. They do have great food and if it isa nice day a great place to sit on the deck and watch some skiers to really get you in the mood for your next day of skiing.
if you want to stay in Salt Lake try going to the Gateway center. it is an Outdoor shopping mall there are some good places to eat there. Others would know more about SLC.

I would agree with the Park City comment, although if you're staying there you might want to check out SLC itself. I dunno brew pubs is your idea of a place to go but Squatters is pretty good as is Wasatch brewpub. Down in that area there are some restaurants and such also. There was another thread here somewhere that talked about where to take kids which you might want to look up.

OK, good thoughts, but we are NOT taking kids (for once)!!! We're staying in PC and have actually spent a lot of time there in the past so I'm kind of looking for a place in Salt Lake. Normally we're in such a hurry to get to the mountain we would not make time, but this trip it would be nice to finally experience SLC.

OK then my comments hold for SLC. Check out this site also for some ideas.

Yes, the Porcupine (at the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon) is open for lunch BUT...

You might want to read this thread first:

It appears they have been having an on going problem with parking lot break-ins.

I don't know if they have addressed this problem yet, but I would be leary of leaving any gear in my car, even at lunch time.

It's too bad because I've eaten there many times and never had a bad meal.

The best meal I had during my summer visit to SLC was at Monsoon Thai Bistro on Foothill Drive. Foothill Drive is towards the ski areas so you're not going out of your way. It has the added advantage of sharing a parking lot with a liquor store so you can stock up on wine, real beer and any other alcoholic beverages you might want.

I was just getting there. Although I hope they don't mind a late (2PM) lunch... otherwise you'll be in line for a while.

There's also a great little hole-in-the-wall Greek restaurant over by the Temple... wish I could remember the name but it's been there forever. Fast-food setup but good food, unlike the Mad Greek places that don't make real tzatichi (have no idea how to spell it) sauce for their gyros.

x2 on Changs and Bangkok Thai and Squatters. FWIW, we just had dinner at McGrath's Fish House by the Delta Center and it was marginal at best.

It's hard to argue with a place that shares it's lot with a liquor store!!! Thanks for all the great ideas!

At Stowe, I was mistaken for "being with" Fox because I ate breakfast with he and Oboe the first day. After that they automatically put my breakfasts on his room tab

Ya think I should have cleared that up with them:

So you were the one who ran up the $100 bill in the bar that evening, then walked away leaving it to me?

I said breakfast Fox!
The bartender knows you well enough to know that I was not with you!
Besides, how much could my coffee and diet coke impact your bar tab?
