EAT. AT. PALLET.

OH, WHAT CAN I EVEN SAY TO DESCRIBE THE BEAUTY THAT IS PALLET. FROM THE SECOND I ENTER THIS RESTAURANT, MY CREATIVE SENSES ARE COMPLETELY REIGNITED. THE AMBIANCE THAT SURROUNDS IF FULL OF AUTHENTIC, NATURAL MATERIALS MIXED WITH OLD INDUSTRIAL DESIGN THAT POLITELY PAYS HOMAGE TO THE EARLY 1900'S, WHEN THE BUILDING FIRST CAME ABOUT. IF YOUR DINING DURING SUMMER MONTHS, THE SPACE IS FLOODED WITH NATURAL LIGHT SHOWING OFF EVERY DETAIL AND CREVICE OF THE 100 YEAR OLD RECLAIMED WOOD THAT MAKES UP THE HARDWOOD FLOORS AND COMMUNAL TABLES. IN THE WINTER MONTHS WHEN THE EVENING COMES EARIER, THE LIGHTS DIM AND LOADS OF CANDLES ARE USED TO WARM UP THE SPACE. NEED I SAY MORE? I WILL THOUGH, BECAUSE I HAVEN'T EVEN BEGUN DESCRIBING HOW GOOD EACH AND EVERY DISH IS. TRUST ME, IV'E PRETTY MUCH TRIED THEM ALL AT THIS POINT. TO START, MAY I RECOMMEND THE TRUFFLE FRIES. THEY ARE AN ABSOLUTE MUST!! SPRINKLED WITH PARMESAN AND DIPPED IN AIOLI, THIS APPETIZER IS NOTHING SHORT OF AMAZING. IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING ON THE LIGHTER SIDE, THE FRESH AHI TUNA IS PERFECTLY MARINATED WITH SUBTLE HINTS OF CITRUS AND SOY.(BOTH DISHES ARE PICTURED BELOW) NOW ONTO THE MAIN COURSE. WE ORDERED THE UTAH GREENS SALAD AND THE N.Y. STEAK, ACCOMPANIED BY THE CLASSIC BAKED MAC N CHEESE. I REGRET TO INFORM YOU HOWEVER, NEITHER SHANNON OR I CAPTURED ANY PICTURES OF OUR ENTREE'S. WHY YOU ASK? YOU GUESSED IT- EACH AND EVERY BITE WAS CONSUMED BEFORE WE EVEN HAD A CHANCE TO REALIZE. MY APOLOGIES. 



















PALLET IS OPEN FOR DINNER MONDAY-SATURDAY FROM 5:00 PM- CLOSE. LOCATED AT 237 SOUTH 400 WEST SLC, UT. 84101
THEY DO TAKE RESERVATIONS ( HALLELUJAH!) ONLINE, OR BY CALLING PH: (801) 935- 4431

GOING PUBLIK...

HAPPY SUNDAY! MY FAVORITE DAY OF THE WEEK! MONDAY- SATURDAY I'M NOT ABOVE MAKING A QUICK RUN TO STARBUCKS TO GET MY VANILLA LATTE FIX, BUT COME SUNDAY CASEY AND I LOVE TAKING A LITTLE DRIVE AND STOPING OFF AT PUBLIK. THIS COFFEEHOUSE IS A FAVORITE OF OURS SEEING AS NEITHER OF US HAVE EVER HAD ANYTHING LESS THAN PERFECT HERE. WHAT REALLY KEEPS US COMING BACK? THE AMBIANCE. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE WIDE- OPEN, INDUSTRIAL STYLE WAREHOUSE THAT PUBLIK IS. WHEN IT COMES TO THIS COFFEEHOUSE, SIZE DOES MATTER! THIS 200 PERSON, NEWLY RENOVATED ROASTERY OFFERS PLENTY OF PRIVACY FOR A LITTLE COFFEE SHOP CONVERSATION. THE SERVICE CAN BE A BIT SLOW, BUT I DON'T THINK FOR A SECOND THAT'S ANY LESS THAN INTENTIONAL. YOU SEE, PUBLIK BELIEVES IN QUALITY OVER QUANTITY, PLANET OVER PROFIT, AND SWEATING THE BIG STUFF. IT SHOWS. MAKE THE WISE DECISION TO CHOOSE LOCAL AND VISIT THIS GEM WHEN YOU HAVE TIME TO SIT BACK, ORDER A DELICIOUS PIECE OF ARTISAN TOAST, AND SIP ON YOUR DRINK OF CHOICE. THEY WON'T DISAPPOINT. 



IF YOU'RE HAVING A HARD TIME CHOOSING BETWEEN THEIR TOAST SELECTION...
MAY I SUGGEST THEIR PEANUT BUTTER-HONEY, AND BANANA SPREAD. IT REALLY IS AS GOOD AS IT LOOKS!




TOO MANY JITTERS ?
TRY A REFRESHER!


LITTLE ADDITIONS TO MAKE YOUR POUR PERFECT FOR YOU!



PUBLIK IS LOCATED AT 975 S. WEST TEMPLE SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH.
