Last night Cody and I went out for a celebration dinner in honor of all of his hard work lately and gaining a huge new customer that he’s been working on for awhile. The last couple weeks he’s been working 12-14 hour days, so he deserved a special dinner in honor of him.
I told him the restaurant location was up to him, so he decided on Market Street Grill, a little bit higher end Utah native restaurant that is known for their fish and seafood entrees. It was actually the first time we had ever been there, but we have always heard rave reviews on it ever since we moved to Utah.
I was excited to get all “fancied up” since we don’t usually go out to super nice restaurants.
I made reservations ahead of time, so we didn’t have to wait to be seated which made the experience even better!
I started out with a piece of their fresh bread with butter (added after I took the photo), which I chowed down because I was getting super hungry at that point.
I had such a difficult time deciding what I wanted. Everything looked so good! I absolutely love seafood so when presented with a bunch of options, it’s quite the challenge for me to decide. Our waiter recommended the “Stuffed Salmon” which was salmon stuffed with cream cheese and artichokes and topped with seasoned bread crumbs. Um, yes please!
Our entrees each came with a salad or soup of choice, so I went with the spinach salad. It was a very simple salad tossed in a avocado blue cheese dressing.
Next came our entrees which were the highlight of the evening! This was easily one of the best salmon entrees I’ve ever had. It came with steamed broccoli and garlic potatoes. I ate all of my broccoli and potatoes, and about 2/3 of my salmon fillet. Cody helped finish the rest.
After our bellies were filled to the brim, we decided to walk over to the new outdoor mall, City Creek Center, they just opened up right in the middle of downtown Salt Lake City. We were only a couple blocks away so we thought it’d be fun to see what it was all about.
City Creek Center was absolutely gorgeous! Not to mention they had some of my favorite stores – LOFT, H & M, Gap, Banana Republic, Forever 21. I could’ve walked around there forever. Cody wasn’t really game to do any shopping, so we just walked around and enjoyed the sights.
Downtown Salt Lake is such a fun place to be! I told Cody we are definitely coming back regularly throughout the summer.
And if any of you lovely gals would like to come to Salt Lake to go shopping at City Creek Center, I’d be all about it!
We finished the evening with some frozen yogurt of course! I got peanut butter and vanilla frozen yogurt topped with Reese’s Peanut Butter chunks, Butterfinger crumbles, and some hot fudge.
By the time we got home, I was ready to face plant into bed after a fun filled evening!
