San Francisco Hound needs food for trip through Price, Richfield, Cedar City, Washington and St George

After many moons heading to Utah on 5/22 for a business trip with stops at Price, Richfield, Cedar City, Washington and St George. Have combed the boards and found a few references but thought I'd post this request for help.

We can drive short added distances for great food but welcome suggestions as close to these towns as possible given all the driving we must do. We'll be in SLC at first and the boards have reminded me of the choices there, some of which I remember fondly from my years visiting the town for meetings. Appreciate your suggestions.

San Francisco Hound returning to Boston after many moons needs 2 days of dining

Thanks for all the input--Summer Shack is a maybe. I may need to try Neptune Summer shack for our 1st dinner given their great menu, location and generally excellent reviews. I am prepared for attitude but can hope to miss out on that. Thanks for the lunch advice. Grotto looks good and convenient. Will let you know our experience.

If you are ever in SF, a new favorite is Farina for lovely staff (mostly Italian so you can practice if you wish), fab foccacia with burrata and prosciutto, My meal was perfect including lamb chops that melted in my mouth and a delicious cassata cake desert. Stylish decor but unpretentious.

Thanks to everyone for your guidance. I am reserved at Erbaluce. So just need one more dinner. I am getting scared off from Neptune given comments about service. Service is very important-hate arrogance and lousy service in general. Atmosphere is important-So, welcome suggestions for seafood within walking distance of Beacon Hill--prefer smaller place with nice personnel and great food. Also, hope for breakfast & lunch suggestions WALKING distance. Thanks for your help.

Thanks for the fast reply, bgavin. Your suggestions look very promising! Erbaluce is right near where I began my Social Work career so I will need to try that for at least one meal.

Greetings-returning to Boston after more than 10 years at the end of this month. We have just 2 days and need guidance for breakfast, lunch and dinner walking distance from Beacon Hill. We are good walkers. (We can take a cab home at night if needed).

Have reviewed various posts and so far, Neptune and Summer Shack sound good. Prefer not Italian per se but welcome seafood, meat, local fresh ingredients, pasta etc. (We get spoiled here in SF but I know Boston will feed us well). Omelettes for breakfast would be lovely. Good salads for lunch. Love great food but prefer more casual dress. In my post college days (30+ years ago), lived in Back Bay and Beacon Hill and worked in South End. Know things are very different. So appreciate fellow Hound advice.
