Kitchen & Bar

Zest kitchen offers globally-inspired, seasonal cuisine featuring organic, local, sustainable ingredients. With a farm-to-fork mentality, we are dedicated to supporting wellbeing through healthy, fresh ingredients and focus on plant-based, vegetarian, raw and gluten-free dishes that fit into all diets, including paleo. Recognizing the connection between plate, planet and people, we support local farmers, businesses & organizations with fair trade practices.

Our bar is an extension of the kitchen, resulting in hand craft cocktails with fresh ingredients combined with organic and local spirits and one of the largest selections of organic wines, beers and spirits available in Utah. Zest is able to transform seamlessly from a great restaurant for dinner into a late night, vibrant and comfortable lounge complete with live music and dancing. Come in for lunch or rent our venue for your next event.

Casey Staker

Casey Staker created Zest to combine his passion for organic cuisine with original cocktails and live deejays. Zest started as an outgrowth of a daytime pursuit of cooking classes, during which he received his executive certification in raw foods.

We opened the restaurant in 21012 in response to the lack of restaurants that focus on organic and healthy foods. We are a staple when you need a solid healthy, tasty meal, taking full advantage of the ingredients used in both the kitchen and bar, and remaining dedicated to providing great tasting, organic, vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options to a city where few exist.
