Dining events not to miss plus Father’s Day specials

Manoli’s lamb roast

Head to SLC’s finest Greek restaurant this Thursday (June 17th) and you’ll catch owner Manoli Katsanevas and team doing what they do best – spit roasting a whole lamb! Pictured above is the man himself doing just that at the Meet Your Maker event back in 2019.

As well as this seasonal specialty – enjoyed best in the open air of course – the restaurant will of course be offering their full menu as well as paired flights form local wine’sperts P.R. Grisley.  Manoli’s recommend reserving ASAP as this one is always a sell out.
