The Copper Onion is one of my top 5 favorite restaurants. Since I'm still crippled thus not cooking as much these days, there's been excessive dining out and take-out between electric shopping cart rides at Walmart and Costco ;) I took brother Brian here to show off Salt Lake City. Located right next door to the Broadway Theater downtown, The Copper Onion is easy to get to with plenty of metered parking in front (so bring your quarters!). The veggies are always fresh, beautiful, crisp and the pasta is always home-made and al dente—outrageously delicious!
Snap Peas, fresh horseradish. Crisp and tangy, perfectly seasoned. Get this!
Pasta Carbonara, house-made fettucine, egg, niman ranch smoked bacon, cream. This is my absolute favorite pasta dish! Ridiculously chewy noodles, sickeningly rich yolky yolk, crisp salty bacon. So simple, yet intensely complex.
