High West Distillery and Saloon of Park City also opened a restaurant and saloon in Terminal E of the airport. High West will also be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, features a wide selection of High West's favorite spirits and cocktails. The food menu ties closely to High West's Park City location, with a variety of small plates, sandwiches, All Darn Day Saloon Bites and, for the morning fliers, healthy and delicious Crack O' Dawn Victuals.
Other new dining venues include Salt Lake City Pizza & Pasta, Mill Creek Coffee Roasters, Auntie Anne’s, Smashburger, Great Wraps, Fresh Market On The Go, French Meadow Bakery & Café and Starbucks. For several years the airport has had a version of Squatter's, serving the beer and dishes from the downtown Salt Lake Squatter's pub. Squatter's is also involved in the airport's recently opened Vino Volo Ale House.
Many airports around the country are including local flavors in their terminals. A few years ago, when I was stranded in the Atlanta airport when my flight was cancelled, I consoled myself with dinner at Paschal's. I found out it's a well-known Atlanta restaurant with an outlet at the airport.
If you're waiting for a connecting flight, or you want to grab something to eat on the plane, you have a lot more interesting options now.
