“I’m suggesting that you leave before I have to get snooty.”
-Maître D, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off [1986]

Fine dining in Salt Lake City has never been more accessible. While the phrase “fine dining” traditionally invokes images of valet parking, tables lit by candles, and, let’s get real, a rather robust bill, thankfully, some of SLC’s more upscale restaurants have dropped the gatekeeping dress code and made fine dining in Salt Lake City available to anyone who appreciates an elevated dining experience. Whether you are celebrating life, love, or just a Friday night, these fine dining restaurants in Salt Lake City will surely impress. Whenever someone asks for a fancy restaurant to take their loved one to celebrate an anniversary, an engagement, a new job, or just to impress someone from out-of-town, we send them this list.

Real quick: You really don’t need to a special occasion to go to these restaurants. Treat yourself to incredible food and a great dining experience. When you say “fine dining” everyone thinks these are fancy restaurants that you can only afford to go to once a year for a birthday or anniversary. A few years ago I was there with you. But fine dining has less to do with price these days. It’s more about incredible food, and it’s more affordable than you’d think. SLC deserves fine dining restaurants, and that means supporting these restaurants more than once a year.

We are in full “Treat Yo Self” mode this year, so tell us where we need to go in the comments below!
