Nicholas & Co. donates the ingredients with Salt Lake Brewing Co. matching the donation to the non-profit of the restaurant that sells the most.  Prizes are also awarded to top-selling servers at each location too. A full list of the locations and causes supported include:

Urban Hill

Recipient of this year’s outstanding restaurant award by Salt Lake Magazine has a new special hitting the table this month. The “tableside s’mores” arrive with all the fixings right at your tabletop – enough to create six delicious s’mores. To enhance the experience, the restaurant has also partnered with Solo Stove and Hedley and Bennet to present and perfectly roast the marshmallows. This dessert experience is priced at $22.

Scion Cider

One of Utah’s most unique bars has now updated its hours to include Monday. This is particularly notable as the Central 9th cider bar now makes a perfect venue to enjoy Central 9th Market’s Monday burger special. For the uninitiated, the weekly special at C9M is one of the most hotly anticipated popups on the weekly dining calendar. Each Monday the market/cafe crafts a concise menu of burgers, considered by some as the best burger in town. The only catch is that the business offers no indoor seating.

The new Monday opening hours means you can enjoy this weekly special at both Scion and Water Witch around the corner. A word of warning, the lines form quickly for this one, and the business routinely sells out. Get there early.

Kona Grill

With March madness in mind, the Riverton recent arrival has a new grab-and-go option, available from March 19th, to Monday, April 8th.

The game on sliders & sides package features 12 KG sliders accompanied by sides of mac & cheese, mashed potatoes, and fries – priced at $59. A sushi variation offers an assortment of Kona Grill’s signature sushi, priced at $69.
