Salt Lake Tribune Op-Ed: Without People, There Is No Economy

Laziz Kitchen - Restaurant & Food

Before launching Soulful Exploration, I had started two companies. Laziz Foods, a food manufacturing company of middle eastern spreads, and Laziz Kitchen, a Lebanese inspired Mediterranean restaurant. It was a joy to build something with such passion, and then set it free, so that I could pursue my evolving passions, more rooted in sharing a personal intimate space. Laziz had a major breakthrough on the Food Network's hit show Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, appeared on CNN's United Shades of America, boasted numerous write ups in travel and food guides, including a handful of praise pieces from the Salt Lake Tribune, City Weekly, Salt Lake Magazine, Slug Magazine, and other local publications. Most recently, Laziz was hailed by the New York Times as "the future of queer dining". The highest achievement was being nominated as a James Beard Award nominee - largely unheard of for a restaurant barely at its five-year mark. Here are some of the highlights.
