Tried The Curry Leaf for lunch today, located near downtown at 26 S. Wahsatch. Excellent food, very reasonably prices, fast service, but noisy small room. Make reservations...only room for about 10 tables.

My husband wanted to go to Culpepper's the other day...that is so sad! They were very nice people.

La'aus (downtown) is a place that my young adult kids love. My husband brought home one of their tacos the other day, and it was very good--very different--delicious with really fresh ingredients.

I agree! Best sandwich shop I've tried. I think the chain started in Colorado.

Some of that I suspect was due to the Powers/Carefree location. For some reason, the entire Powers corridor seems doomed to chain restaurants rather than fine dining. A bigger reason, I suspect, was that the owners never marketed the place. Next to no advertising at all. Many, many people had never heard of it, even 7 months after they opened.

Very sad.
I stopped by a couple times to try it but it was closed both times. You really have to open up large hours on a new restaurant opening. The folks at the Greek place up another two intersections knew this an did long days 7 days a week until they had a good amount of word of mouth clientel.

I like Rosie's Diner in Monument for their breakfast skillets after a weekend morning mountain bike ride! They also have good classic shakes.

Another good sandwich shop is A Flavor of New York on 26th and highway 24. I did get to try out Jimmy Johns before I left home and it is worth the money. Don't let me forget the Pita Pit too.

Culpepper's is OPEN again, but way on the south side of town, at I-25 and Hwy 115.
