About the Episode

Utah has always had its own take on fine dining. Forget white linen and dozens of utensils. Farm-to-table has reigned supreme, and a hyper-detailed commitment to quality has made restaurants like Forage, Pago, and Handle the new standard in the state. And with new restaurants like HSL and Table X joining their ranks, chef’s and entrepreneurs are putting Utah on the culinary map.

Table X opened their doors in 2016, and right from the start they were doing things differently. Located in Millcreek, the restaurant features a garden on the property, three chefs, and a new menu almost every week. Recipients of a Dining Award from Salt Lake Magazine and awarded Best New Fine Dining by the Salt Lake Tribune, their short time in Utah has already been noteworthy.

“We’ve got a lot to lose, and that motivates us.”
— Nick Fahs

On this episode of The Utah Foodie we sit down with co-owners Nick Fahs and Mike Blocher and dive into what inspired Table X, what their goals for the future are, and their approach and mentality to owning a restaurant. And it helps that we got to spend some quality time in their garden. We are positively buzzing with excitement over this episode. And no, we don’t apologize for any bad puns.
