I met up with some friends a few weeks ago for lunch at Finca in Salt Lake City. I’m not up on all the new, hip restaurants in SLC like I should be. I leave that to Becky and then go where she recommends. (Note to self: spend more time in Salt Lake.)
“Derived from the Spanish word for vineyard and farm, Finca features contemporary Spanish cuisine sourced from Utah producers. Utilizing Pago’s (our sister restaurant on 9th and 9th) strong ties to the local food community, Finca will further the numerous relationships we have already formed to purchase local pork, lamb, beef, eggs, flour, cheese and seasonal produce.”
I love restaurants that support local agriculture. Not only is it good for the community and your health, it just tastes better.
I ordered a delicious salad–arugula, frisee (my fave), pickled beets and strawberries (sooo good), on top of house-made farmer’s cheese. The dressing was fantastic–sweet, just like I like it. This salad was perfect.
My favorite thing? That would be the Papas y Aioli, made with locally grown potatoes. And no, I didn’t eat the whole thing myself. I shared with my friends. (I totally wanted to eat all of them, but that’s a lot of potatoes!) When I go back, I’m going to order this again for sure.
Check out Finca next time you’re in Salt Lake City.
