Even Stevens Sandwiches * – Looking for something a tad more elevated to start the daily grind with? Might we suggest the recently revamped breakfast menu from the fine team at Even Stevens then. The new breakfast menu offers a genuine alternative to the stodgy and sad drive thru options you might ordinarily fall back on too often. And as ever, eating at Even Stevens remains the easiest way to help someone else in need out, while helping yourself to boot.
The new menu includes the following items:
Breakfast Sandwich ($5.95)
Two eggs (scrambled or medium), choice of protein (thick-cut bacon, sliced ham, juicy sausage, fresh avocado, tender pork belly), melted cheddar, maple mustard (sweet and tangy), served on a Hawaiian Bun.
French toast ($3.75)
Citrus infused brioche topped with sugar and cinnamon. Served with your choice of frosting or good ol’ syrup.
Brava tots ($1.95)
Tots served with brava aioli, and smoked paprika.
Vegan burrito AKA the Morrissey ($6.75)
Soyrizo, marinated tofu, tots, roasted veg, vegan brava (house made garlic veganaise).
Don’t forget that weekend brunch at Even Steven’s also runs 9am – 4pm, offers unlimited french toast for $3.75 and mimosas for a measly three bucks. Three bucks. Local coffee is poured at all locations, and differs at each restaurant: Downtown/Rimini, Sugar House/La Barba, Draper/Cup and Cardigan.

Bistro 222 – It’s a little more than 18 months since I first wrote about Bistro 222 for the Salt Lake Tribune. Back then Michael Jewell headed up the kitchen. Sometime later, Jewell was replaced by chef David Bible and very recently chef Brady Gray took the helm. Phew, got that? Keep up please.
Gray’s introduction was the backdrop for an event I attended at the restaurant a few weeks back, to see what was cooking under his watch. What certainly hasn’t changed is the menus gleeful ALL THE THINGS approach; it’s about as easy to pin down as a politician in a swing state. There are enough nods to world cuisine that your head could fall off: Thai, Indian, Moroccan, Vietnamese, Italian, Japanese and yes, American. As I mentioned last time around though, that’s not necessarily a terrible thing – there’s flexibility among the chaos of flavors.
Gray comes to Bistro 222 directly from a seven year tenure at Ruth’s Chris and Gastronomy’s Baci Trattoria before that. As ever the restaurant boasts a wonderful wine list, great location, and free validated parking hidden around back. Pictures from Gray’s intro dinner below:

The Eating Establishment – Lastly, up in Park City, the town’s longest-running full-service restaurant (open since 1972 don’t you know fact fans) recently released a refreshed winter menu and welcomed new sous chef Martin Galicia to the kitchen. Galicia promotion to sous comes after 30 years of experience with the business.
The winter menu features a range of comfort food styled dishes from Texas meatloaf with chorizo sausage, herbs and roasted peppers, to trout almandine pan-fried with pine nut corn relish, plus mussels in white wine sauce with garlic and lemon herbs, and a 12-ounce prime rib.
“These selections are bringing back some great traditions like the prime rib, and introducing some new ones, like the Texas meatloaf – which we’re serving with garlic mashed potatoes and red gravy – and the trout almandine, what we like to call Mountain Trout,” manager Meredith Cervantes says. “These are some delicious dishes perfect to warm up you and your family on a cold winter night. Martin’s such an integral part of our family here at The Double E; we’re excited for this next step and to watch his success in the weeks and months ahead.”
