Good Eats - Eva SLC

Last night I went to one of my favorite downtown restaurants called Eva (www.evaslc.com). Its right on Main St. so it's very easy to get to.

Me and my boyfriend, Nick, rode our bikes and met my roomie Amanda of Stairs to the Attic (read it, she cracks me up) and our friend Peter there.

Eva is a small plate restaurant which means that you can try a lot of different things for not too much money. They have happy hour on Monday nights at 10 so you get get a small (girl sized) pizza for around $6.

Amanda and I decided to share and between the two of us we ordered the cheese plate ( I could live off of cheese alone), Sauteed Brussel Spouts with Toasted Hazel Nuts and Cider Vinegar, Parmesan, Garlic, and Rosemary Fries, Kobi Steak, Pear and Walnut Arugula Salad, and Frozen Banana Cake. YUM!!!!!

Nick got the white pizza (chicken, artichokes, bechamel, parmesan, mozzarella), and Peter got Calimari with Sherry Cayenne Aioli and Sea Salt.

Wasatch is one of our local Breweries and they make tasty beers! I really liked this one.. very light and summery. I'm not much for the heavy or dark beers.

The lovely Amanda.

Eva is has the most adorable patio ever! It has exposed brick walls, twinkle lights, hanging planters on the wall... I wish I got better photos. Just take my word for it, it's adorable. If you are planning a romantic date, definitely eat out on the patio.

With full bellies we took our sweet time getting home. It was the perfect night for a bike ride.
Don't mind Nick's bum crack bike light...

This is the Walker Center... It gives the weather forcast depending on the colors of the lights.
