Avenues ProperAs Fall beckons, so menus start to take on a little heartier form and function. The above shots are just a sampling of several richer new dishes recently rolled out at one of our favorite spots in the city; hanger steak and fries finished off with a stout cake are sure to put a few calories on for the Winter hibernation. See the full current dinner menu here and don’t forget these guys do one of the best brunches in city not to mention lunch and late night too. 376 8th Ave, Salt Lake City, UT 84103 (385) 227-8628 avenuesproper.com
