After nordic skiing, we stopped at Ruth’s Diner near Salt Lake City. It’s not actually in the downtown but located in the mountains close by. It has a gorgeous view and probably one of the best views from a diner. Although, River Star Diner has a great view.
I was excited to try the Vertical Diner in Salt Lake City, not because it was a new diner but because it’s a vegan diner. In the 400+ diners, I’ve been too, I’ve never been to a vegan diner before. How fun is that?
The Vertical Diner has another location in Portland, Oregon as well.
While I was in Las Vegas, I went to the Black and Blue Diner. Despite being in Nevada several times, I’ve never made it to a diner, so I was excited to cross Nevada off my list. According to their website, they have the “best breakfast in town.” The Black and Blue Diner has also been on TV. It took me a while to figure out why, but it was opened by Las Vegas chef and Food Network star Vic Vegas.
While in the Pasadena area, I stopped at Diner on Main. Since moving to the desert, finding diners hasn’t been easy. There are few around me. One of the “silver linings” about having so many doctors appointments in Los Angeles is that I can try new diners (HA). Instead of sitting in Los Angeles traffic for an hour, I decided to sit in a diner for an hour. Which ultimately led to sitting in a diner for an hour and sitting in traffic for an hour.
