The bank on Canyon Avenue keeps its vault door open round-the-clock, but bandits would be remiss to attempt a break-in. That’s because the bank is no longer a bank—it’s now The Canyon Chop House. The steakhouse’s menu fills the space with a new kind of richness: prime cuts of steak, fresh seafood, and house-made pasta that’s considered valid currency in some parts of Utah. To enhance this delectable spread, bartenders pour a vast selection of wines and more than 60 kinds of brews from from Germany, Belgium, Holland, and England, as well as craft beers from local Colorado breweries.
