We are honored to announce that The Lion House Pantry, The Garden Restaurant and The Roof Restaurant won Best of State 2013 in specific Dining Categories!
The Lion House Pantry – Informal American Dining
“In 1964, the Lion House was recognized as a National Historic Landmark, listed in the Register of Historic Places. Secretary of Interior, Stuart Udall praised the house as a monument to the achievements of the Mormon Pioneers. (…) Because history is a great part of the Lion House Pantry, so is the devotion and contribution of our chefs and staff to keep the traditions alive. (…)The restaurant is a distinctive place where the chefs and employees contribute with family recipes and everything is made from scratch; soups are prepared everyday, fresh rolls, baked goods, etc. The roast beef is a traditional recipe used from the beginning of the Pantry’s existence – almost 45 years. The Pantry also has the exclusive Brigham Young’s Sarsaparilla, a soft drink made from sarsaparilla plant similar to root beer, that he claimed to be his favorite drink.(…)”
The Garden Restaurant – Casual American Dining
“The Garden Restaurant has a rich legacy dating back to 1914, four years after the completion of the prestigious Hotel Utah.(…)This year, The Garden Restaurant celebrates 20 years with the reopening of the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. It continues to resemble the grandeur that The Starlight Gardens created some 98 years ago. (…) In 2012, The Garden added distinguished items to its Mediterranean inspired American cuisine menu. Among those, long-standing signature items to The Garden Restaurant still remain on the menu, including the famous Fried Pickles.”
This the 4th year in a row that The Garden Restaurant wins Best of State in this category!
The Roof Restaurant – Fine Dining Buffet
“The Roof Restaurant holds an elegant history in conjunction with the majestic Hotel Utah. In 1914, the extravagant Roof Gardens restaurant was opened atop the hotel, which offered immaculate views of the Salt Lake Temple and Salt Lake Valley.(…) Today, The Roof Restaurant is located in one of the interior seating sections of the old Roof Gardens. This particular section of the Roof Gardens was focused around small curved booths, which are still one of the distinct attractions of the current Roof Restaurant.(…) In December 2012, The Roof Restaurant received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Utah Restaurant Association, which is given to restaurant operations that have been in business for more than 50 years. (…) Our in-house Pastry Chefs create our award-winning array of specialty desserts exclusively for The Roof Restaurant. Each evening more than twenty different desserts are displayed at two Dessert Stations located in the center of the restaurant. (…) Executive Chef Mauricio and his staff prepare domestic and international cuisines that change each night. The Roof Restaurant takes special care to make sure every guest’s needs are met.”
