Shop talk » Leatherby’s is a family-owned restaurant that has served Salt Lake County for 27 years. The restaurant, which just this month expanded its dining area, whips up more than 30 flavors of ice cream, sorbet, yogurt and sherbet every day in a special 24-hour process. Oh yeah, they serve burgers, fries and more to help curb that sugar rush.
