Restaurant: The Garage, Salt Lake City
Recommended by: Ryan Lowder of Copper Onion and Plum Alley
Traditionally served as a post-memorial casserole, this dish is an outrageous take—deep-fried nuggets of cheese, hash browns, and more—that's "a fun play on a classic," says Lowder. "It's kind of fatty, comforting food that goes well with a cold beer." $; 1199 N. Beck St.; garageonbeck.com.
