“It’s hard not to be romantic about baseball. This kind of thing, it’s fun for the fans. It sells tickets and hot dogs. Doesn’t mean anything.

-Billy Beane, Moneyball [2011]

Named due to its proximity to the Salt Lake Bees ballpark (currently Smith’s Ballpark), the Ballpark Neighborhood of Salt Lake City is quickly becoming one of the most interesting neighborhoods in greater SLC. The influx of 5-10 unit townhomes popping up on every corner along with new restaurants, bakeries, and bars to match, you can almost see the gentrification (for better or worse) in real time.

What strikes me about the Ballpark Neighborhood restaurants is the variety. True to the area, you’ll find a huge variety of cuisines and dishes from adventurous new American restaurants to authentic phở, ramen, and Tibetan cuisine. This mixture of cuisines, dishes, and population growth has made the Best Ballpark Neighborhood Restaurants some of the most exciting in Salt Lake City. Some might even say it’s a … home run. Even if that dad joke was a swing and a miss.
