Eva’s Boulganerie, better known as Eva’s Bakery, is well-known around Salt Lake City for its breakfast, lunch and unbelievably delicious bread (among other baked goodies).  Earlier this year they started serving dinner and I recently returned to check out their new fall menu.  I was surprised that the food was a complete improvement from my first dinner experience.

Eva’s Bakery’s menu is very petite, especially compared to its sister restaurant, Eva, a Mediterranean small plates restaurant with extensive offerings.  The dinner menu at Eva’s Bakery includes the regular lunch items plus a few entrees that change frequently.

For starters, the fall dinner menu offers Roasted Duck Chowder ($7), a creamy, comforting chowder, and Organic Green Salad ($7) with fresh plums and local cheddar in a red wine vinaigrette–simple but satisfying.

The mains include a Pecan-Crusted Chicken Breast ($16), served with local vegetables topped with a currant-tomato chutney and Braised Local Pork Roast ($15) with potato gnocchi.  The roasted duck was a delicious take on comfort food.  The slow-cooked texture and fresh vegetables gave it the essence of a pot roast, with the delicious gnocchi pillows creating a pasta-like vibe.  It was hearty, it was familiar, it was perfect for fall.

The Pecan-Crusted Chicken was full of contrasting flavors, with the slightly sweet tomato chutney being the icing on the cake.  Like the duck, it was perfectly suited for cold weather.

And, of course, their desserts are always a hit.  (After all, it is a bakery.)  The Lemon Chiffon Cake ($5) was a light way to end a meal full of heavier dishes.

Eva’s Bakery is a charming, quiet spot for dinner.  Or even stop in for a glass of wine and some dessert.  For 20% off any dinner item, mention #EvasBakery4Dinner (valid until Thanksgiving).
