La Caille – A Culinary Masterpiece in Sandy Utah

La Caille is one of the finest restaurants in Utah, and one of my personal favorites. I have been there many times, tried something different each time, and have absolutely loved every visit. I’ve been meaning to blog about it for ages, so here it is.

Situated close to Little Cottonwood Canyon in Sandy, UT, is La Caille. Known throughout Utah as a home to culinary masterpieces, this incredible restaurant is truly a masterpiece. They are so amazing, in fact, that they have received 12 consecutive AAA 4 diamond awards!

Opened in 1975, and encompassing 22 acres of incredible property, there is no other restaurant quite like La Caille. The grounds are absolutely stunning, and a favorite venue for weddings, for the lucky few who can afford it. A visit to La Caille would be worth it for nothing more than a walk around the grounds.

On to the food, the best part of La Caille. Personally, I love escargot, so I get this as my hors-d’ ouevres each time I go. The flavor and texture are absolutely incredible, and a definite must try.

There menu changes from time to time, but everything served is incredibly delicious and flavorful. I’ve had the the rack of New Zealand lamb with with Grand Marnier glaze and mint jelly, and the roasted rack of red deer with venison cabernet sauvignon glace spiked with lingon berries. I have also tried the filet mignon with Roquefort and a sauce of Armagnac and moutard, as well as the pan roasted eastern duck with fruit cognac sauce. Believe me when I say that everything is absolutely delicious and bursting with flavor.

For dessert, I’ve tried both the Creme Brulee and the Chocolate Chantilly Cake, and was blown away at the sophisticated flavors in such seemingly simple desserts.

Regardless of your tastes, you will surely find something to suit you from the amazing La Caille menu. However, dinner at La Caille is not cheap. I’ve never spent less than $200 for a meal for two, though we do always get appetizers, drinks and desserts. Though expensive, I believe it to be worth every penny. Reservations are a must. Walk-ins are rarely seated.
