Franck’s Restaurant in Cottonwood Heights, UT — Food Porn Quicky

A few days ago, a couple of friends and I went down to Franck’s for dinner. I always have to prepare myself for a meal at Franck’s. The reason? It’s an awesome meal where I always end up eating too much. You also fill up even faster when the chefs in the kitchen are sending over incredible apps your way — one of the benefits of having worked there before…

As the Best of State winner for French dining and overall chef, my friend, Irene, insisted we visit for my (very belated) birthday dinner. Chef Franck Piessel changes his menu everyday, but the food is amazing every single day. I apologize ahead for not remembering every luscious detail to the wording of each dish — I’ll try my best though!

Scallop… (ahhh, I suck! I don’t remember the awesome sauce…).

The greens are pea sprouts though! There are also mushrooms and a sort of corn salsa on top?

Wagyu beef with pan seared (I think…) peach and tempura shrimp.

The sauce was awesome, but once again, I don’t remember exactly what it was aside from being incredibly delicious.

Fried chicken with cherry tomatoes and broccoli rabe.

Coq au vin.

Braised short ribs with a corn succotash, roasted figs and mashed potatoes. Again, I don’t remember the sauce, but it was spectacular — as always.

We finished it all off with a butterscotch pudding (my favorite), but I was so full, I could lift my arms to take another photo. Sorry!

We rolled out of the restaurant (very close to the last table standing wobbling) and back into our vehicles, (maybe a bit too) well-fed and stuffed.
