Salt Awards » Tribune editors, readers chose top restaurants and more.

More than two dozen Utah favorites were honored Wednesday night at The Salt Lake Tribune's Salt Awards for excellence in their products, services and the experiences they provide.

Readers cast thousands of votes for what they love to eat, do and see in Utah. The winners in the 20 Readers' Choice categories represent what their fans say are the best places to enjoy the arts, chow down on burgers, raise a local brew — whether in a brewery or a coffeehouse — explore with family or escape the desert heat.

Tribune staff included classics in the Editors' Picks, but focused on new players you might not have tried yet — standout restaurants and businesses that deserve to become your favorites, too.

"We're thrilled so many community members joined us to celebrate Utah excellence," said Tribune Editor Jennifer Napier-Pearce. "Through both popular vote and expert eyes, Salt Award winners have proven to be tops and we appreciate the fantastic services and experiences each provides to enrich the quality of life in the Beehive State. Congratulations to all the winners!"
