Foodtrepreneur Festival – Building on the slightly chaotic but bags of fun event one year ago, the Foodtrepreneur Festival is back for a second year. Now housed in a new location at The Leonardo, I’m guessing the extra space will allow for a smoother second take.

If you attended the inaugural event last year in downtown SLC, you’ll know the setup well: informational panels from food experts, food entrepreneurs showcasing their products, a cash bar and live music. The panels come first after which begins the showcase (5.30p.m.) where guests move from business to business sampling myriad bites from some of Uta’s best. The current roster of Utah food entrepreneurs you can meet include and experience:

Chocolot
Ice Lollies
Sugared Caramel Candy
Tree Hugger
Grandma Sandino’s
Beltex Meats
Heber Valley Artisan Cheese
Good Grains Gluten Free
Mozdy Kuchen
Mama Africa
Chili Beak
Chapul
Salsa Queen
Beehive Distillery
Five Wives Vodka

The event will be held on April 27th, 4:30 p.m. until 7.00 p.m., with panels ending at 5.30. Attendance is free but make sure you RSVP as one of the first 300 guests to ensure prompt entry: https://foodtrepreneurfestival.splashthat.com/

fresco italian cafe Fresco Italian Cafe – Finally, some bittersweet news. One of the East side’s favorite restaurants announced their closure today. Their formal announcement reads:

Thank You! After almost 30 years in Salt Lake City, award winning Fresco Italian Café
will be closing on Saturday April 2nd, 2016. We would like to thank our stellar staff, exceptional chefs and loyal patrons. Please come visit us one more time before we say goodbye.
Serving dinner Monday – Saturday 5pm -9pm. Ciao, Fresco Italian Cafe.

The restaurant had enjoyed relatively recent successes winning various awards with chef Logen Crew at the helm. With Crew now moved onto Current Fish & Oyster and Faustina closing for the upcoming Stanza Italian restaurant perhaps the writing was already subtly on the parete.

Things are moving fast in the La Salle/Trio group of restaurants though, so expect a busy and exciting 2016. Phelix Gardner recently joined the team from Finca/Pago, plans are afoot for a (still secret) new concept in the space of Fresco, and of course there’s this maybe…

  1. A shame to hear Fresco’s closing. I’ve been wary that the LaSalle Group is spending too much on their new places and may look to shutter their less well-performing properties (Faustina, Vinto, Fresco). I wouldn’t be surprised to see Caffe Niche on that list before too long.
