Food trucks may be a hot item amid the Salt Lake summer scene, but don’t let them steal all your attention away from the city’s best restaurant patios. For outdoor dining, be sure to stop by the Copper Onion (111 E. Broadway, thecopperonion.com): come for the burger, stay for the brussels sprouts; Caffe Molise (404 S. West Temple, caffemolise. com) dishes up amazing homecooked Italian food; Eva’s (317 S. Main St, evaslc.com) serves tapas to die for. Quite a few bars offer fun decks too—including the sprawling outdoor areas at Gracie’s (326 S. West Temple, graciesslc.com), the rooftop deck at The Green Pig (31 E. 400 South, thegreenpigpub.com) and the sidewalk people-watching at Beer Bar (161 E. 200 South, beerbarslc.com). 42
