This restaurant is right next door to the AirBnB listing, and has received the following review from Zagat: "A bit of an insider's hideout, this Downtown gem never fails to impress with its fabulous, locally focused American-Eclectic fare served in a charming brick-storefront setting with a romantic vibe; though it's a little pricey, pleasant service keeps it humming as a destination for foodies." Breakfast and brunch is especially delicious here, but check hours before going.

Substantially completed in spring 2000 in time for the church's April 2000 general conference, the 21,000-seat Conference Center replaced the traditional use of the nearby Salt Lake Tabernacle, built in 1868, for semi-annual LDS Church general conferences and major church gatherings, devotionals, and other events. It is believed to be the largest theater-style auditorium ever built. Because the building sits near the base of Salt Lake City's Capitol Hill, the roof is landscaped for attractiveness, an extension of the Gardens at Temple Square. About 3 acres (12,000 m²) of grass and hundreds of trees have been planted on the roof. Guided tours are available for free.
