A 12-year AAA Four Diamond Award winner, La Caille nestles fine French cuisine and attentive service into a scenic eighteenth-century, French-inspired chateau. Guests enjoy eye-boggling views of Little Cottonwood Canyon while devouring dinner, brunch, or a prix-fixe Basque dinner that features soup, salad, and two entrees of the chef's choosing in one of four dining rooms.
Cafe Terrace celebrates its grand opening as a staff of crêpe-crafting wizards puts 14 sweet and savory spins on the French disk. Indulge in the banana-caramel crêpe or the savory SoCal, whose sunny disposition of avocado, roma tomato, and lemon aioli makes diners wish that all crêpes could be California crêpes. Six sandwiches transport their fresh cargo, and soups simmer in the kitchen's pots, awaiting the chance to warm bellies with flavors of butternut squash or tomato bisque. Italian sodas carbonated with air from Mediterranean breezes infuse culinary travels with more than a score of flavors, including mango, raspberry, and passion fruit. While enjoying café fare, patrons lounge in a casual environment strewn with chessboards, available for playing a round against a friend or merely admiring the checkered surfaces.
A giant owl sculpture guards the front entrance of Roll Up Crepes, a brick façade painted with woodland scenery. Inside, another tree takes up residence in the middle of the dining room, its branches extending across the ceiling. Though containing no twigs or leaves, the menu is as eclectic as the decor, with crepes stuffed with savory and sweet ingredients that include pulled pork in barbecue sauce and berry cheesecake. After a brief stay in a panini press, the rolled-up treats are served with sides of potato chips or ice cream. The staff also carts bite-size crepes to weddings, corporate events, and chain-gang reunions. Roll Up Crepes keeps late hours, staying open until 1 a.m. and hosting open-mic nights and monthly concerts from local artists.
From the fresh trout caught in local waters to the piles of splintered logs, the chefs at The Wild Grape Bistro keep their kitchen fully stocked to craft New Western dishes that earned a Zagat-rating of good to very good and the title of Best Salt Lake City Restaurant from Salt Lake Magazine readers in 2010. The eatery?s talented chefs try to use locally made and sustainable ingredients as much as possible when slathering homemade steak sauce on Colorado bison burgers and tossing linguine noodles with grilled shrimp and heirloom tomatoes. Pork chops and elk patties take on rustic flavors while cooking atop the wood-burning grill or inside the authentic smoker.
The d?cor straddles a similar line between modern and rustic. Rough brick surfaces hold pieces of art and long green banquettes rest beside polished wooden tables. Post meal, diners can move to the copper-hued, V-shaped bar to sip some of their carefully chosen wines or imitate migrating geese.
Sharpen mouth muscles with the very veggie sandwich, stacked with spinach, tomato, avocado, carrots, pickle, cheddar cheese, and peppers, all dressed with mustard and balsamic vinegar. Or, opt for the cold tuna sandwich. All sandwiches are available in half ($6.59) or whole ($8.59) sizes, as are salads ($7.29 for whole, $6.29 for half). Try the citrus cranberry salad, a fruity blend of mandarin oranges, dried cranberries, almonds, and feta. Vasuvio's also serves homemade organic soups with freshly baked garlic bread.
Moore Hair Design's staff of savvy stylists keep their brains stuffed with up-to-date haircare trends, providing a variety of follicle fashioning and coloring services fit for the modern head and the hair attached to it. Cuts for women ($35–$50), men ($20–$32), and kids ($15–$25) include a sudsy shampoo and a blow-dry, and brides to be can pop into the shop for a formal styling ($70–$90). Wielding Infiniti by Affinage, an Italian hair-coloring product, Moore's team performs custom coloring procedures, from a partial foil ($75–$90) to a single-process color ($65–80 for women, $40–$65 for men). The Moroccanoil blowout ($28) straightens out uncooperative scalp squatters, which have been known to suddenly grow in every direction at once if not given a proper styling.
