Eat Local Week: A Zest-y Giveaway

I expected Casey Staker, owner and chef at Zest Kitchen & Bar to produce stellar dishes and cocktails for Eat Local Week. I am not disappointed. His restaurant consistently impresses with farm to table fare and drinks. I've never walked away unhappy.

For Eat Local Week, Zest Kitchen & Bar is featuring a heirloom Bloody Mary made with  Five Wives Vodka , the tomatoes and veggies came from Frog Bench Farms, Mololo Gardens, and Diane's Garden  This Bloody would go great with my favorite stuffed mushrooms with cashew cheese or the local cheese plate for a light and flavorful brunch.

Try a refreshing Watermelon Margarita made with Vida Tequila and watermelon from Mololo Gardens I love the color of this cocktail! It would pair well with spicy jalapenos poppers or chips and salsa.
A drink that would go with anything on the menu is the Blu-Sage-Peach Tea made with  High West Distillery  and produce from Utah's Own, Black Bear Orchards , and  The Original Way .  

And now ... the giveaway! In the comments share your favorite dish or drink from Zest. The winner will receive a $10.00 gift certificate. A winner will be announced Monday, September 15 on Zest's Instagram account. You should be following them, Casey posts the most delicious food and beverage pics in Salt Lake City.


  1. i have actually never been to Zest - and as a utah gal, it's definitely time that I head over. I was just looking into it a couple weeks ago and was very impressed.

  2. I love the kale salad with curry dressing. The cashew butter they sell at the Market is soooo very good too.

  3. Zest is one of the few restaurants in Utah that actually serves you the right sized portions, which is why I've always loved them! I love their coconut curry red lentils with mushrooms & tomatoes and their sweet potato fries! I'd like to try their locally made Bloody Mary :)
