December 2022 Roundup of New and Notable Restaurants

Salt Lake City is never one to rest on its laurels when it comes to food and drink, and the last three months have been no exception. If it’s been a while since you’ve checked out the latest and greatest changes to our foodie scene, we’ve got just what you need - a recap of some  of the very best new openings in town.

It’s worth mentioning the dazzling new Hyatt also features a ground floor restaurant (Salt Republic) with plenty of Utah-influenced surprises, as well as a lively cocktail bar (Contribution) on the South East corner of the building, a perfect people watching spot in the heart of the city. 170 S. West Temple Street Salt Lake City, UT 84101…
