Smashing Sunday in Salt Lake City

Sunday was a smashing combo of great sites and an amazing meal - my favorite kind of day!  It turns out that Sunday in Salt Lake City is a lovely day to visit as most of the stores downtown are closed - less traffic and less people.

We started with the state capitol building which was open and virtually deserted!  Absolutely amazing building and architecture and perched high atop the valley.






After the Capitol building we went to my new MOST favorite restaurant - Wild Grape Bistro where we had an amazing Sunday brunch!  Wild Grape is a cool little place right on South Temple in Salt Lake.  The service was outstanding, the food was amazing and I cannot wait to go back!

We started with a house special bloody mary, iced coffees, kiwi lemonade and a prickly pear mimosa ...



And then we moved onto the main delights:  Crab Benedict, Shrimp & Chorizo and Grits, Open Faced Prime Rib Sandwich and Huevos Rancheros ... oh myyyyyy, I am hungry again ...






Our Server was a delight herself - Brooke - and Wild Grape Bistro is now at the head of my list for every Salt Lake visit!

We wrapped the day with a leisurely stroll through Temple Square and peeks into the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the Assembly Hall.  Sunshine, good food and family ... does it get better than that?




Next weekend is MOAB and the Arches - I cannot wait!

Don't forget - I have 5 more weeks to fill with my visitors - you can win a $25 Smashburger gift certificate by suggesting places in Utah!  We are looking for more off the beaten path or restaurant or lodging suggestions - Who has been to MOAB???
