In its annual dining awards, Salt Lake Magazine awarded High West Distillery and Saloon with "Best Design," recognizing the exceptional design and ambiance that High West created when it renovated the historic National Garage. Finally, High West’s Executive Chef James Dumas won the top honor, called "Judge’s Choice", at the 7th annual Arts-Kids culinary cook-off and fundraising campaign for the local youth development non-profit.
