Restaurant recommendations near brighton

We plan to spend 4 nights at the Brighton Lodge in February right before Presiden'ts day weekend next year. Can you please recommend some great restaurants in the area? We plan to do lunch at Molly Green's but we will have a car and we are foodies so willing to venture out. Our 6 year old will be with us too.

Thanks in advance.

There are a few options close to the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon like Porcupine Grill, Trio, Market Street Grill. None would be considered top notch for foodies. Just some options as close as possible, out of the canyon.

A few others that are an additional 5-10 ten minutes would include Lone Star Taqueria, Tsunami Sushi, Mama's Plantation Soul Food, Gepetto's Pizza, and Spice Bistro Indian. For finer dining look into La Calle, Tuscany, and Francks. Haven't been here but heard Layla's is pretty good as well.

If you are willing to travel downtown I love Mahider for Ethiopian, Eva and Meditrina for small plates, Finca for Spanish, Copper Onion for new American, Mazza for Middle Eastern, and Takashi for sushi.

I had dinner at Silver Fork about a year ago and I don't exactly remember, which means it didn't knock my socks off but wasn't horrible either.

Lots of suggestions. Brighton isn't really a great base if you're a serious foodie and looking for a very special dining experience. There are plenty of options in Salt Lake City, but most anything of note for you will be a 30-45 minute drive.

Among the closest are some noted already including La Caille (really reasonable driving distance and best of this list), Tuscany (fave of ours) and Franck's. All are about 35 minutes from Brighton.

As noted, Silver Fork is really the only standalone restaurant of note in the canyon itself - 5 minute drive. It's not a foodie place from an elegant food perspective. But it's great food in a wonderful cultural environment. Breakfast, lunch or dinner. I would also give the restaurants at Solitude (5 min) a shot as they're close. Haven't dined there in a few years so can't say specifically on quality. But convenient for sure.

Trio was also noted. I wouldn't put Trio in high level foodie category, but it is one of our faves although we prefer the other location.

Have fun.
