  • City Greek Express

    If someone came to me and said they were going to open another Greek restaurant in Salt Lake, I would tell them they're nuts.

    I get so excited when we find a restaurant with food we feel that Utah was lacking.

    Small plates, regional American, or fine dining? Putting a category on a restaurant like The Copper Onion is difficult, but one thing is for sure, it is delicious. Located next to Broadway Centre Cinemas in downtown Salt Lake, providing a dinner and movie experience unlike anywhere else in the

  • Beehive Bazaar at Thanksgiving Point
