Brussels Sprouts

A beautiful addition to downtown in a historic building. The perfect vibe for an intimate dinner with friend or a cocktail date. A bright and vibrant upstairs bar area and moody and eclectic booth dining seating downstairs. Oh and the brussels sprouts... best in state!

Steak Salad

This was the BEST meal my fiance and I have had in a while. From the moody ambiance, to unique drinks and incredible food, we had a phenomenal night!! The Steak salad was PERFECTION. There was crispy bacon, sweet dates, charred lettuce, crunchy almonds and MORE! My fiance is a burger connoisseur - he said the wagyu beef was exceptional topped with juicy bacon, house made pickles and served with herbed French fries. I cannot wait to try more delicious dishes on this menu! P.S. - We are even considering having our rehearsal dinner here to show our out-of-town guests this amazing location!

Mushroom Beignets

This was only the beginning of one of the best dining experiences I've had in years! I have not been able to stop talking about Franklin and cannot wait to head back for more!!! This is a "must go" restaurant and bar that is off the charts! My absolute favorite by far putting SLC in the San Francisco and Seattle mix of eclectic dining and do not pass up the deviled eggs!!!!

We gave enjoyed this restaurant several times now and the food is always fresh and delicious. The items on the menu are different than many of the places we have dined at and they are exciting as well as original. Loved every minute of our experience.

Vesper Americano

We came in for drinks and some snacks on a Saturday night. I had been looking for a good Vesper in Utah and AJ at the bar delivered beyond expectations. Thanks! We'll be back soon!

Steak Salad

NIRVANA ON A PLATE! Words cannot adequately describe the well-rounded dining experience we had at Franklin Avenue Cocktails and Kitchen. My husband and I were looking for something different and off the beaten path of the usual restaurant and bar scene in Salt Lake. For me the atmosphere is as important as the drinks and food. It simply sets the mood and whets your appetite for what is to come. An environment should hopefully be inspiring. The aesthetic of the Franklin did all that and more. Franklin is tucked away on a side street in downtown Salt Lake much like a artisanal boutique would be that you fall in love with because it and the things in it are one of a kind. The entrance is reminiscent of old Salt Lake with big windows and old brick. Inside is warmth with subdued colors and wood floors with beautiful vintage lighting. We felt at home when we walked in. The far wall displayed colorful shades of liquor that caught the light in a pleasing way and the bar area was cozy set away from the table seating. The bartender herself was a delight to watch as the shaker had a jazzy rhythm as drinks were mixed. People at the bar were enjoying chatting with each other and the bar tender. The drinks were amazing! I had a drink with Mezcal and a smoky layer that lingered on the tongue like a fire trying to hang on a little longer. My husband had a really tasty citrusy beer he enjoyed. Our server had amazing recommendations and I ordered the steak salad and my husband the Waygu steak sandwich. Now, you may be saying come on, how good could a salad be? When food is well done it becomes an experience not just something you eat. The layers of flavors in this salad are nirvana! The greens crunch, the bacon adds salt which pairs well with the creamy green goddess dressing and the soft farm cheese, then add a hit of sweetness and depth with the dates, the contrast of pickled shallots and the perfectly cooked Waygu steak. One of the best salads I have ever had. Dessert was chocolate donuts, which is kind of an understatement. These little desserts were works of art. Light chocolate rounds with an airy center and crispy shell that was delightfully crunchy and complemented by the anglaise sauce. We commented how a small portion of something so good was far better than a big portion of a dessert with less taste and nuance. My husband and I commented we felt like we were back in DC and having a very top shelf experience. Thank you for a wonderful evening and a place we intend to return to again and again. The Franklin works equally well as a gathering place for friends, a place to bring out of town guests or a romantic evening for two. Hope Franklin becomes a Salt Lake institution.

I had the wagyu and pasta special. It was incredibly flavorful and beautiful. Wish I was eating it now again. The service was responsive and fun. The place is beautiful.
