For yrs, we visited our big city cousins in New York and San Francisco and cooed at their fluid food stuff areas. We’d return home with tales of versatile modular setups, one-prevent showcases for small organizations that may well not usually have experienced a likelihood to shine.
As rents have inched up, however, so has the need for these spaces in Salt Lake Metropolis and encompassing cities.
In reaction, food stuff halls of all styles and size have been popping up around the Wasatch these past number of years.

Lamb & Feta will offer you a familiar reprise of Mediterranean flavors.
Hog & Custom BBQ • Patmides’ other new undertaking is a entirely new outing. The presser for the hall’s imminent arrival notes “he has perfected the BBQ sandwich along with a myriad of other barbecue dishes.” If which is not ample to get a line forming down the road, I do not know what is.
