Main Street Quality Meats is the delicious product of a merger between two cherished, time-honored butcheries—Quality Meats, which opened in 1956, and Main Street Poultry, which opened in 1958. Now in its fourth generation of family ownership, this landmark carves up the best of both shops, stocking residential and commercial kitchens across the Intermountain West with fresh beef, pork, and all-natural chicken. Eight journeyman meat cutters deftly slice up Korean–style ribs, boneless pork-loin roasts, and boneless chicken-breast tenders to give discouraged freezers a reason to be happy.

After selling his Brazilian import store, Brazilian-born J.R. Lopez opened Braza Grill, a rodizio-style steak house reminiscent of the barbecue restaurants in his home country. Servers tote skewers loaded with pork sausage, garlic-infused tenderloin, and other meats from table to table, offering unlimited portions and variety to hungry diners. An open fire pit cooks the bacon-wrapped chicken and pork loins along with pineapples for a sweet sidekick. Patrons can stretch their legs and nonchalantly loosen their belts during trips to the hot and cold buffet stocked with pastas, salads, and a brazilian black-bean stew called feijoada, according to CityWeekly.

Beneath a dining-room ceiling lined with blue, yellow, red, green, and white prayer flags, House of Tibet indulges its patrons with a menu of traditional Tibetan and Indian home cooking. The cuisine complements the colorful decor with its bold, vibrant flavors, as evidenced by dishes such as the fried dumplings stuffed with savory beef or the chicken and lamb curries. Vegetarian meals appear just as prominently throughout the menu, tempting guests with the promises of chow mein tossed with fresh vegetables or fried cauliflower glazed with a Manchurian-style sauce.
