A Mediterranean Bistro Coming Soon to Regent Street in Downtown Salt Lake City

A Mediterranean Bistro Coming Soon to Regent Street in Downtown Salt Lake City, Chef Market Wholesale Marketplace, and Nelson Cottage by High West Reopens


Nelson Cottage Reopens

Park City’s Nelson Cottage by High West has reopened for summer. The Nelson Cottage by High West offers their specially prepared Summer Prix Fixe dinner menus on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays all season long. According to the Nelson Cottage team, “Seasonal selections will be carefully crafted by High West’s culinary team with optional whiskey pairings available.”

The prix fixe menu is $90 with optional whiskey pairings starting at $60 per person. The menu changes frequently, but includes items such as Cottage Milk Rolls with Chile Crunch, Duck Confit, Maine Lobster Sweet Gem Lettuces, Striped Black Bass & Leek Fondue, Shiitake Mushroom & Truffle Mac ‘n Cheese, Maple & Brown Butter Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Elk Bourguignon, Warm Chocolate & Cara Cara Orange Cake, and more. Reservations can be made on Opentable.

Fenice Coming Soon

I’ve got good news to share with folks, like myself, who love Park City’s Silver Star Cafe. Owners Jeff and Lisa Ward have taken over the space on Regent Street in downtown Salt Lake City that was previously home to Fireside on Regent restaurant and are in the process of readying a new eatery to open, hopefully, in August or early September pending a liquor license from the DABC. 

It’s called Fenice Mediterranean Bistro, and according to the Wards they “will serve delectable from-scratch Italian and Mediterranean-inspired fare and wood-fired pizzas in the heart of the arts, culture and theater district, directly next door to the Eccles Theater, and walking distance to all downtown arts and culture venues.” Knowing how great Silver Star Cafe is, I know Fenice is going to be a hit hotspot downtown.   

Chef Market Wholesale Marketplace

If you are a restaurant, bar, coffee shop, caterer, or other local food business, you should know about Chef Market. It’s the creation of local restaurateur Wendy Evans, who says, “Chef Market was founded with a passion for local restaurants and a lofty objective: to provide wholesale delivery for restaurants, bars, caterers, coffee shops, and other small food businesses in as little as 2 hours.”

As a local restaurant owner herself, Wendy saw the challenges chefs faced due to being shorted products from their regular suppliers, chasing down specialty items or driving around to pick-up additional items when sales were much different than expected. She started Chef Market to fill that gap. Says Evans, “There’s nothing complicated about it. We believe in independents.”

Chef Market products include dairy, bakery, meat/seafood, beverages, frozen items, canned/dry goods, supplies and more. You simply shop online via the Chef Market app from stores ranging from Costco, Salt City Baking, local Asian markets, Standard Restaurant Supply, Restaurant Depot, and many others, and Chef Market shoppers pick up the goods from stores and suppliers to deliver to your doorstep in as little as two hours. There are no membership fees or contracts. Need Amoroso rolls for authentic Philly cheesesteak sandwiches? Just order them up online. Chef Market sounds like a win-win to me!
