While food prices might be soaring – 12% in some categories according to the Des News – at least there isn’t an industry wing shortage this year. With that in mind then, here are the local restaurants and bars offering Super Bowl specials this year.
Flanker Kitchen + Sporting Club
This newly opened venue in The Gateway will be making a big splash for game day. As we as the dozens of LED screens throughout the space, Flanker will be offering their regular brunch menu 11.00 a.m. through 3.00 p.m. before offering a special game day menu from three onwards.
You can enjoy the game throughout the space in their Sporting Club, various lounges and cocktail parlor area out back. Not only that but there will be prize drawings during the day too.
The game day menu features dishes including house smoked chicken wings, an 8 oz Black Angus burger, fried chicken sandwiches, smoked brisket nachos, mega chips and salsa, and a special Sporting Club platter that’s loaded with chicken tenders, buffalo chicken wings, fries, and potato tots.

- Wings by the dozen, $20

Oh those wings pictured above? For my money they’re the best in the state, you can find them at SOMI in Sugar House. Be sure to order them with extra garlic, basil and jalapeño and thank me later.
Mercifully, I haven’t needed to add to this list of covid-closed businesses for some time. Time of course marches on, and that means businesses will naturally still fall by the wayside. Here are a few notables that have recently called it quits.
Tsunami Sugar House
This sushi-staple has now formally announced the permanent closure of their Sugar House store. After an extended hiatus brought on by the pandemic and subsequent staffing challenges, the business has decided to let the newer 9th and 9th facility carry the torch for SLC fans. The brand writes:
Many of our long time customers have been asking about the Sugarhouse Tsunami. After months of deliberation, we have made the very difficult decision to permanently close the Sugarhouse store. We feel that our newer location in the 9th and 9th neighborhood delivers a better customer experience and more accurately reflects our continued commitment to excellence. We are sincerely touched by the affection so many of you had for Tsunami Sugarhouse and promise to continue the magic at our other locations.
The news comes as the larger business group itself celebrates twenty years in business this February. Other locations still serving up the sashimi include the 9th and 9th location, Fort Union, South Jordan and Lehi.
I’ve been asked to confirm the status of this restaurant by several readers. Sadly, the new isn’t what many hoped for. The Holladay outpost of Ryan Lowder’s Copper concept has now closed for good permanently.
Lee’s Rice And Fish
February 5th was the final day for this Roy-based mom and pop – much beloved by locals for their excellent food at wallet friendly prices. The cash only joint closes, as the owners are retiring.
