This established, family-run restaurant is the place to go for fine dining in an upscale, yet hip, setting. The 22-year-old business has recently joined forces with Alpine Distilling to provide a new twist on your dining experience. Notice the tin-pressed ceiling in the historic building that once housed a department store as you take a front-row seat to the action on Main Street. Start with a signature cocktail or a bottle from the Wine Spectator-awarded list. A diverse menu of traditionally prepared, classic and playful cuisine is now crafted for family dining and sharing plates. Menu items reflect the flavors of alpine regions such as garden, valley and fjord. The Utah red trout entrée is a local favorite, but there is something for everyone on the menu, including gluten-free options. For a truly unique experience, book a tasting in the Alpine Distilling tasting room where you can custom craft your own signature gin to enjoy with your meal.
