Sunday isn’t the dining apocalypse it once was in SLC. There are now many restaurants open Sunday in Salt Lake City, and the following are some the best. Sundays in SLC can be so much more than a boring old roast dinner – you can find everything from sushi to steaks to…well, you name it, you can probably find it these days in Salt Lake.
While the featured restaurants below are some of the very best places you can eat on Sunday in Utah, it’s by no means exhaustive. Check out the two following links on our sister site SLC Menu, for more detailed info on Sunday dining in SLC as well:
SLC Eatery is the work of chefs Paul Chamberlain and Logen Crew – a duo who you might recognize from their award winning time at Fresco Italian Restaurant way back when; and what a team they make, SLC Eatery is undoubtedly one of Utah’s top restaurants, and luckily for you – open Sundays too! The cuisine spans a range of global influences, Indian to Mexican to Chinese, all tied together with New American sensibilities; think fresh, seasonal, local products where possible.
One particular item that stands out at SLC Eatery, is their take on the classic dim sum experience. As you enter the restaurant take note of the specials board, and during your email you’ll see a small plates cart make its way through the room. Feel free to order up anything that takes your fancy at your own pace – and trust me – it’s hard to not grab pretty much everything.
The feel is chic but relaxed, stop in for a couple of small plates and a glass of wine, or make it an evening with a full meal – but whatever you do, make sure to hit up this unique dining destination before the crowds discover it!
