Communal Restaurant Review & Giveaway

October 6th, 2009 in Giveaways

The winner of this giveaway is Pamela who said, “Hearing lots of good things about this restaurant. I want to try it out!! Yummy!”

100 North University Avenue
Provo, Utah 84601

(Full Disclosure: I was given a free meal with a group of fun bloggers and a $25 Gift Certificate while reviewing Communal Restaurant)

Over the years, my husband has turned me into a full fledged foodie.  I blame him entirely for all the extra love on myself. But heck it has been worth it, because I really do love to eat. Although I don’t eat just anything.  We are terribly picky and only want THE BEST in the food world (seriously who do we think we are? who knows).

And that is why, after moving out of Utah County a year or so ago, I am terribly disappointed. Who knew these two amazing chefs would come into Provo and TRANSFORM the dining possibilities down there. After eating at the Communal, remembering how delicious Pizzeria 712 is (their other restaurant), AND hearing that they are going to open SEVEN OTHER Restaurants down there PLUS a catering company, my heart broke.

But then I remembered it takes just as long to go to Provo as it does to Salt Lake (ahh–if you drive super fast to Provo or a bit under the speed limit to Salt Lake).  Because let me tell you, I will be back to their restaurants and as often as I can make it.

I tasted H-E-A-V-E-N at the Communal last week.  No, I am not being over dramatic. I did, and it’s all I can think about. May I present the butterscotch pot de creme (along side the chocolate caramel tart)

I could not believe my taste buds.  How could everything taste so out of this world? So delectable? So fresh? SO perfect? Not too fussy, but just right? Oh I don’t know, but they did it- and beyond.

Oh, did I mention they work with local farmers? Awesome, I know.

To top it off, their love from the food isn’t where it stops.  They have a love for where they live and for their customers.  You can feel that love as soon as you walk in the door.

P.S. Thank you for letting me use your picture, Communal, from your blog.  Mine did not turn out that night!

Want me to get to the good part already?

    It really was quite amazing. I can’t wait to go back. Those dudes know what they are doing.

    And don’t count this as an entry. I would feel like such a jerk if I won because I already have one of the gift certificates burning a hole in my wallet.

    I live around the corner from Communal and have been so excited about all the great new restaurants in downtown Provo. Downtown is finally becoming the destination it should be.

    I was basically wanting to know if you ever thought of adjusting the page layout of your site? It is very well written; I love what you have got to say. But maybe you could add a a bit more in the way of written content so people might connect to it better. You have got a great deal of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Hi superb website! Does running a blog like this take a great deal of work? I’ve no expertise in programming however I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyway, should you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share. I know this is off topic but I simply needed to ask. Thanks!
