On Saturday night we had the opportunity to experience another gem of Salt Lake City Dining. This time we were directed to the restaurant by artist, Traci O’Very Covey, and photographer husband, Mikel Covey. Mikel actually photographed this Chef and his food creations a few years back. I doubt that we would have found this restaurant as it was on the outskirts of town, hidden in a park-like setting. We met Chef Franck, a charming man who carries his strong french accent with him, and learned a bit about his background and his life style. Chef Franck, an award-winning chef, is slim and trim. No wonder, since he rides his bike to work and then home again in the dark after an evening of creating his culinary masterpieces.
The restaurant has a large flat-screen TV in the main dining room that serves as a window into the kitchen, where you can observe the kitchen in action. The service was perfect – our waiter was Russell. The corkage fee was lower than any we have encountered anywhere: $12 per bottle. But best of all was the diversity and creativity of the menu options. We took a fabulous tour through the menu, sharing multiple appetizers, entrees and desserts.
Here is a sampling of our delicious fare for the evening:
