Went to SLC for work, spent some time in the mall to get some Lego for the Princess. Decided for something familiar and comforting.
This is one of Salt Lake’s best beer bars and should be on your list if visiting the city. Many beers on tap at the downtown location. Here, it’s mainly in a bottle.
“Elephant” was the original name of their hop-centric, flagship ale. A certain mass producing lager brewery in Denmark with a beer of the same name stripped their Double IPA of the “Elephant” title. A group of frustrated Red Rock staff was tasked with finding a new name. Story has it, someone said, “what on earth are we going to name this beer?” Another replied, “hell if I know!” The misheard “Elephino” was a unanimous choice.
The cup size soup of the day turned up to be quite a serving. Creamy but not much leek taste. Good on a cold autumn day.
I am a sucker for grilled brussel sprouts with bacon, and this has sharp cheddar added for that additional dimension. Good, but not outstanding.
This is really not the place for steaks. I regretted the moment the flat iron medium rate was served. It was a flat piece of unappetising and tired looking steak.
Spacious restaurant with a nice atmosphere. Service was good. I would go again, but with the expectation that it’s pub food, so stick to the pizzas and burgers. Could be a good place to take a group though, as there’s something on the menu to suit a variety of tastes.
