Curbside and delivery updates
For many of us, curbside and delivery remain the safest and sane options for the time being. Thankfully virtually all restaurants realize this. More and more are starting to offer new or refined menus; and for what it’s worth I haven’t yet heard of any business that’s ceased curbside in favor of encouraging dine in, Here are some of the latest updates:
Bill White Farms – More items have been added to the list of farm fresh products available at this Park City farmstead. Ground beef and pork as well as a range of beef cuts- from ribs to roasts to steaks are now available, as are baking essentials like bread flour and yeast! Check out the shop link above, or some of the individual items listed below. Shop online here.
Copper Onion – Ryan Lowder’s New American restaurants have been shuttered for a while, Lowder previously commenting on safety concerns. Lovers of the groups of restaurants should note they plan to return to curbside options on May 8th. More info.
Manoli’s – Another popular restaurant that’s been shuttered for a while – now set to make a return via curbside. More info.
Crow And The Pitcher – A brand new curbside menu from this Murray bar. That menu features reuben egg rolls. Need we say more?
Stanza – Continuing to evolve and update their family meals available curbside. More info and menu.
Sut Thai – This SLC Thai food delivery service are offering great family deals right to the door step. The new family combo is priced $27.99 and feeds a family of 4. You can chose any 3 entrees and appetizer. More info.
Takashi – Building on the success of their dinner service, the extremely popular sushi spot is now set to offer curbside lunches too. More info.
Tsunami – Another exceptionally popular Japanese spot and always innovating. The restaurant recently refreshed their menu for curbside.
I’m personally loving all the updates and innovations over at our partners, Saffron Valley. Here are just a few of the ways you can snag their top notch Indian cooking, and save a pretty penny too:
Tikka Tuesdays – Enjoy a double portion (32 oz) of chicken, paneer, or vegetable tikka masala for just $17.99!. Add a side of basmati rice or garlic naan for $2.99. Available at all 4 locations for lunch or dinner. More info.
To go lunch buffet – Includes two curries, basmati rice, one appetizer, and one classic butter naan for just $10.99. Select 2 of the following 4 curries: Chicken Tikka Masala, Chicken Coconut Korma, Paneer Tikka Masala or Aloo Gobhi. Select 1 of the following 2 appetizers: Tandoori Chicken or Vegetable Samosa. More info.
Also, remember to support restaurants that support more than just their bottom line. Case in point…

Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you! I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC and The Utah Review; I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune. I’ve worked extensively with other local publications from Utah Stories through to Salt Lake Magazine and Visit Salt Lake. I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have covered the Utah dining scene for more than a decade. I’m largely fueled by a critical obsession with rice, alliteration and the use of too many big words I don’t understand. What they’re saying about me:
“I thought he was older”
“I don’t share his feelings”
