“Super chill vibe, highly recommend eating at the bar if possible. Cool experience to watch the chefs at work and just relax. Service was great, waiter checked in multiple times but in a very chill, relaxed way. Didn't feel pressured, but felt paid attention to, which was impressive because it was busy at the time.Food was very solid, I got the classic burger with bacon added. I should've ordered it medium-rare, but I was tired and miscommunicated. Other than that, it was excellent.“

“We had yet another delicious meal and fantastic experience at Franklin Ave last night. The design and decor are absolutely stunning, and the staff from the door person to the host to the servers and managers were all so friendly and knowledgeable. We started off with the chips and whipped feta, hamachi crudo, snap peas, and ribs. All were delicious in their own rite. For the main course, I had the pasta special which included handmade pappardelle noodles, duck, oyster mushrooms, and a spicy red sauce. Yum! The miso cod, bolognese, and fish sandwich were also ordered and everyone in our group was over the moon with their selections. For dessert we shared the maple pecan respado - a must try dessert! Cocktails were amazing per usual.“

When we voiced our embarrassment of wanting to lick the plate she told us we were in a “safe space.” She made us feel so welcomed. This is elevated food in Salt Lake City, made accessible, what a novel concept!

Vegetarian options: A full vegetarian tasting menu. Bravo!“

“OMG! This place is AMAZING! If you're a first time visitor, they'll ask for your name, and then even remember you the next time you come in. That, along with their truly delicious food, is just 1 of the many reasons I keep coming back. Each day they serve a different daily special. Their meatball sub and sloppy Joe's are my favorites so far. Their chicken cordon blue is FANTABULOUS as well. But, it's more than just the food that keeps me coming back. Mandy, the owner, is exactly how 1 would expect an owner to be. Her friendliness towards every customer is more than just amazing. She, along with Lisa and Candice, make me feel like I'm much more than just a customer. I could probably go on and on, but, you get my point. Please come in and see all of this for yourself?“

The dessert was a little underwhelming (apple crisp and warm chocolate cake) but the dinner was incredible. We will definitely return. Such a beautiful location - it was idyllic.“

Table X Bread American • $
1457 E 3350 S, Salt Lake City

“Came here for coffee and a light breakfast. I got the toast of the day, beet hummus and ricotta and my friend got the sandwich of the day, ham and cheese. The toast was good but was pretty expensive at $9. The sandwich was a better deal at $12 and was quite tasty but it had really fibrous, inedible pieces of fennel in it which you had to pick out. I also got a couple pastries and a sourdough loaf to-go. The pain au chocolate was $9 but was ridiculously good, so flaky and buttery! Worth it as a special treat. The food was good but didn't seem worth the price, I think the move for table x bread is going for the freshly baked pastries and breads instead of ordering the toasts/sandwiches. Their bread is so good, crispy and crusty on the outside but soft on the inside, highly recommend the sourdough. The drip coffee was also worth it, very flavorful and reasonably priced. If you plan to eat here, be mindful that there are only 3 indoor seats (there are several small tables outside).“

You know when you are already full but you want to keep eating because it just tastes sooo good? That it. We tried the Seitan Pot Pie last week and it was equally savory. Thank you Brooke for giving me a few nights off from cooking with your wonderful prepared entrees.❤“
