There are a lot of new restaurants opening at Station Park, or recently opened! We have loved trying new food and having more excuses to head to one of our favorite places in Davis County. Check out the dining options on Station Park’s website for notes on which restaurants are new or coming soon in the area, then add them to your list to try on your next date!

Catch a movie on $5 Tuesdays

Cinemark at Station Park is one of our very favorite places to go see a movie. We can grab a meal before the show or a treat after, and they have comfortable recliners to watch the movie from in all of their theaters. There are a lot of great movies coming out this summer, but going to see a show that often can be expensive. All day on Tuesdays, you can purchase movie tickets for just $5 a piece. It’s a great price for a date!

Dance by the fountains

One of the first summers we went to Station Park, we were there until it closed and noticed a few couples dancing when the fountain show was going and playing music. Be trend setters and start dancing to one of your favorite songs, whether it’s a slow song or one perfect for swing dancing. There is plenty of space in the area surrounding the fountains for dancing, and the later it gets, the less people there will be around.

Where to Celebrate International Sushi Day in Davis County

International Sushi Day is this coming Tuesday June 18th and I wanted to give you enough notice that you could celebrate with a date night over the weekend if you want. Like most random holidays, there is a real purpose behind . The purpose of this holiday is to raise awareness about the truths and fiction surrounding sushi.

Confession: I've never been a huge sushi fan, but the truth is, I've only tasted it once and it was years ago. I made it a goal to try it again last year and couldn't do it. So if you have suggestions for what type of sushi we should try first, please send them my way!

Menu Items at Tortilla Union that are a Must Try!

My love for Tortilla Union is well know, unless you’re new around here. I will sing praises for their Manchego Cheese Dip until the day I die! I frequent their restaurant at Station Park on a regular basis and have a goal to try almost everything on the menu. Recently they updated their menu to include a few new items and I immediately made plans to try them out. After enjoying their food twice in one week, I thought I’d share my favorite menu items with you and why I love them so much!

Cost: ~$10 per plate

The Trio

This is my biggest “must order” item from the menu, except that you won’t find it on the menu anymore but the good news is, you can still order it! I order The Trio mostly for the magical Manchego Cheese Dip but I also really like their Guacamole. Both dips are flavorful and unique and I could eat them for my meal. On my most recent visits, I ordered just an appetizer of the cheese dip and chips and was a happy lady.

Candied Bacon

Don’t tell the cheese dip, but this might be my new favorite thing on the menu! A few months ago I enjoyed small pieces of the bacon on a salad, but my real love for it developed in the last two weeks, when it was included on a sandwich that I ordered. Oh man, this bacon is something else! It’s the perfect level of sweet with just a tiny bite from the chiles and tortilla union spice. Try it and you’ll love it, I promise!

Crispy Chicken Club

I started seeing pictures of this sandwich a few days before it hit their menu and I knew I had to try it. It’s the first thing I ordered when I went a couple of weeks ago and it was really good! This is the sandwich that made me fall in love with the Candied Bacon. The flavor combination is unique and really delicious. You might thing you should order a taco or a burrito at somewhere with Southwestern food, but trust me when I tell you to try the chicken sandwich!

California Cobb Salad

You guys!!!! If you like salad, order this! The candied bacon and queso fresco add the most unique and delicious flavors to this salad. I’ve thought about it so many times since I first tried it a few months ago. If I wasn’t determined to try more menu items, I’d order this salad almost every time I visit Tortilla Union.

Southwestern Caesar Salad

If I’m going to order a salad for my meal, I’ll most likely go for the California Cobb, but this salad will almost always be ordered as the side with any of the other entrees that I order. I love the combination of southwest and Caesar flavors in this salad. It’s fun and unique and makes my taste buds smile!

Southwestern Mac and Cheese

I haven’t tried this dish personally, but my husband ordered it on one of our dates before he started eating gluten free and he really loved it. I’m honestly surprised I didn’t taste it, because I usually sneak a bite of his meal just so I can tell you more about it from personal experience. We’ll just have to trust my husband’s taste buds on this one, until I can try it for myself.

I’ve tried a few other things on the menu, including a really yummy grilled chicken sandwich that isn’t on the menu anymore and that I don’t think you can order currently. They were all really good, but these are the meals and things I’ve tried that really wowed me! As I try new things, I’ll be sure to share them with you on my social media channels and add them to this post for future reference! I will tell you that I’m really excited to try the Union Ribs and plan to do that on our next date night there. I have a soft spot for ribs and theirs sound extra delicious and original, plus those whipped sweet potatoes are calling my name.

Spring Date Night Ideas at Station Park in Farmington

Have a Picnic on the Green Space by the Fountains

I love sitting by the fountains during the warmer months, watching kids run around and families spend time together. Grab food from one of your favorite restaurants in the area and lay out a picnic on the “grass” between the fountains and the movie theater. Waffled, Madbrook Donuts and Farmington Franks are all great picnic food options around the fountains.

Oil and Vinegar Tasting at Redstone Olive Oil

If you’ve never visited Redstone Olive Oil, you’re missing out on a fun experiences! Redstone has a wide variety of olive oils and balsamic vinegar in their store. They allow you to create a combination and taste it before buying. They also sometimes host fun chocolate fountain events and if you follow them on social media you’ll find out when those are. On the back wall of the store you’ll find fresh and healthy recipes that you can purchase to take home and make with your new oils and vinegar.

Make it a Mid-Week Morning Date

Have you ever been to Station Park on a weekday morning? I stopped by last year to grab a treat and it was quiet and a great place to relax. Stop by Waffled for one of their stuffed breakfast waffles or grab a drink from Fiiz, then sit at one of the tables around the fountains and enjoy the fresh air and the beautiful spring weather.

Stroll Around the Mall While Enjoying a Pretzel

On the block north of Fountain Square, there’s a Pretzelmaker. Stop by for a sweet or salty treat and your favorite cold drink. Rather than sitting to eat, enjoy your snack on the go. Wander around the mall, peeking in windows and making note of places that you want to be sure to visit in the future.

Ice Skating by the Fountains

Station Park has a fun little skating rink that’s open until early February and it’s a perfect activity for date night! Two hour skate rental is $6 for adults and if you pay with your America First Credit Union credit card or debit card, you can get half off that price.

Late Night Movie at Cinemark

Cuddling up at the movies is a great way to beat the cold weather. Cinemark recently upgraded all of their seating to luxury recliners, and it’s honestly more cozy than the couches we have at home. If you can get away on a weeknight, $5 Tuesdays is a great deal for a movie night. Grab popcorn, a drink and some concessions and cozy up together to watch one of the great movies that are out! We love bringing our own blankets to make our date a little more cozy.

Dessert at Last Course

Last Course has become one of my favorite places in the area for date night, girl’s night out and just when I need a little treat. They have a great core menu, delicious ice cream flavors and fun desserts and scoops on their creations menu that changes each month. I love the atmosphere at Last Course and it’s perfect for date night! We love adding it onto the end of our evening or making it the core activity of our date.

Dinner, Dessert or a Snack at Waffled

One of our favorite restaurants recently moved to the Eats & Treats building just east of the fountains at Station Park, and although we’re sad that it’s not by Smith’s still, closer to our house, it adds perfectly to one of our favorite date night locations. Waffled has savory stuffed waffles with soup that make a great meal, stuffed breakfast waffles and sweet waffles liege waffles that make a great treat. You can hang out inside where it’s warm or take your waffle out by the fountains under one of the heaters.

Grab a Bath Bomb from Lush

After we grab dinner at one of our favorite restaurants at Station Park, we like to wander the mall and window shop. One of our favorite stores to stop by is Lush. We love their bath bombs and find that they make a great addition to our date night. We spend some time browsing their many options, smelling them all, and then we pick one out and take it home. After the babysitter is gone, we climb into a warm bath and watch a movie together.

Drink Hot Chocolate by the Fountains

Winter is the perfect time for hot chocolate, and Station Park’s fountains have heaters around them. I love being able to enjoy the fountain shows and the music without getting too cold. We enjoyed this as part of our date night last winter and it was perfect for a warm cup of hot chocolate and some quality conversation.
