You’re Gonna Wanna Spend Time at Harley & Buck’s this Restaurant Week

“It’s killer,” owner Jamie Lythgoe says about her restaurant’s signature dish, Utah’s Best Smoked Prime Rib. When Harley & Buck’s moved down the hill from Eden 18 months ago, they inherited this big ol’ granddaddy of a bright red smoker in their new location just off 25th on Washington. (That’s not to say they weren’t smoking up a storm before they moved; check out this smoker trailer they still use for events). Chef Edgar...

Union Grill Lunch With 11 Kiddos

Last week Union Grill invited The Salt Project and me to do something that would make any mom sweat. Something that has little possibility of being anything other than complete chaos. Last week I had a sit-down  lunch with 11 kids. I imagined every possibility for disaster- spilled drinks, meltdowns, potty accidents, projectile anything. But to my surprise, the entire lunch was smooth sailing and every kid ate, at least, a third of...
