Pizza in a Hurry • This eatery, owned by the same family as Curry in a Hurry, delivers pizza on the fly. The signature thandoori chicken pizza and halal meat offerings set this pizza place apart from other take-out options in Sandy.

Ho Mei BBQ • A self-styled "authentic Chinese food adventure," offering Chinese barbecue, rice rolls, clay pot and more. It’s worth stepping outside your comfort zone and exploring the diverse menu.

Black Sheep Cafe • Southwestern Native American cuisine is as fresh and innovative as ever with high-end Navajo tacos as a starting point. A drink menu filled with creative cactus pear specials makes this a can’t-miss dining experience.

Blue PablanoBlue Pablano offers burritos, street-style tacos and high-end quesadillas to Utah County residents and Salt Lake’s Granary Row attendees.

Copper Bowl • This contemporary Indian restaurant knows how to execute traditional as well as modern dishes such as kurkure shrimp, laal maas and chicken tikka masala.

The Rest • A New York City-inspired speakeasy below Salt Lake City’s Main Street serves "mountain food" and craft cocktails with a culinary twist.

Iron Gate Winery • The Cedar City winery opened about one year ago behind the Iron Gate Bed and Breakfast, offering a tasting room and a patio, and has been well received by residents and visitors alike.

Centro Woodfired Pizzeria • Thin-crust, woodfired pizzas rivaling any in Utah are delivered in a sophisticated environment just blocks from the Utah Shakespeare Festival in Cedar City.

Avenues Proper Restaurant & Publick House • Part restaurant, part pub, part hangout — this microbrewery in Salt Lake City’s Avenues neighborhood is replete with dishes to enjoy alone or pair with a house brew.

Boulevard Bistro • A welcoming, modern atmosphere pairs nicely with thin-crust pizzas, salads, Italian-inspired entrees and gelato at this bistro on Foothill Boulevard.

R&R Barbecue • Brothers Rod and Roger Livingston give their competition-winning barbecue a permanent home in downtown Salt Lake City. The pulled pork, brisket and ribs are first rate; so are the okra and hushpuppy sides.

Cucina Deli • This Avenues stalwart now offers an evening menu peppered with spicy and smoky notes, a dash of fun, and a new wine and beer menu. Try the polenta fries, lemon ricotta dumplings or the duck and seeds appetizer.

Del Mar al Lago • Hidden in a South Salt Lake business park, Del Mar al Lago Cebichera Peruana is serving up high-end Peruvian-style ceviche and seafood dishes that are worth the effort to seek out.

Ichiban Sushi • One of downtown Salt Lake City’s older Japanese restaurants shakes things up with new staff and menu. The new Izakaya menu — think Japanese pub food — offers something unique.
