Urban Hill

The first big restaurant in Salt Lake City’s Post District is Urban Hill, and it comes from the owners of Park City’s Hearth & Hill. From the transparent wine room to magic bathroom doors that open with the wave of a hand, Urban Hill obviously spent a ridiculous amount of money on building this 192-seat restaurant, and all the effort is worthwhile. Start with an order of grilled oysters, then share a round of vegetable-focused appetizers like coal-roasted beets and New Mexico red chile sauce or some skillet rolls served with churned butter and sea salt. 

While there are some excellent boozy drinks like Amalthea’s Last Regret, a combo of vodka, elderflower liqueur, prosecco, blackberry chamomile shrub, and black lemon bitters, Urban Hill also has a menu of creative and standout mocktails. Order the Salt Lake Shirley, an upgraded take on this old classic, or sip the Way of the Rose, a decidedly grownup option made with blackberry chamomile shrub, soda water, and grapefruit.
