Handle in Park City expanded a few years back and opened a sibling in the city: Handle Salt Lake, or HSL for short. This east side spot is located within walking distance of downtown proper and has an ever-evolving menu that’s always on point. One must-order dish you’ll always find is the mushroom bolognese pasta—a carryover from Handle’s menu in Park City. And guess what? This combo of chunky mushroom sauce and cream tastes just as good in the city as it does in the mountains. Most Salt Lake restaurants lean casual, and while HSL’s vibe says “come as you are,” its big velvet chairs and moody design make it a place worth dressing up for.
