Salt Lake Magazine Dining Awards

Fresco - Winners of the Best Restaurant in SLC - Courtesy of Salt Lake MagazineI've got some eating to do! If you've not picked up the March-April issue of the Salt Lake Magazine do yourself a favor and find one. Although they announced the winners of the 11th Annual Salt Lake Magazine Dining Awards the magazine goes into more details about the winners.

The overall "Best Restaurant" for SLC went to Fresco, who also took home best Italian. A couple years ago I had a very enjoyable dinner at Fresco and it's time for a return visit.

Joining the Hall of Fame, and rightly so, were Log Haven and Cucina Tuscana, both icons in the the Salt Lake restaurant scene.

Winning best brunch is the Oasis Cafe, which incidentally while having lunch there last week a business associate raved about their brunch being the best in town. I guess he wasn't alone in that exclamation.  This got me thinking - what makes a brunch the best? How much of it is atmosphere and how much the food?
