Italian Graffiti Coming to The Gateway

A new Italian eatery called Italian Graffiti is coming to The Gateway, bringing a new, higher-end dining experience to the complex. “We are excited to be fulfilling our mission to attract a diverse array of businesses to The Gateway as part of our ongoing revitalization efforts to make it a premier destination and hub of downtown Salt Lake City,” says Jacklyn Briggs, The Gateway’s marketing director.

According to the team behind the new restaurant, “Italian Graffiti is the first full-scale restaurant by Nice Hospitality, the visionary team behind HallPass and SkinnyFATS. This new venture will offer a contemporary interpretation of classic Italian fare and hand-crafted family recipes from Chef-Partner Marc Marrone’s Italian-influenced upbringing in New York City. Building upon nearly 20 years of experience earned at world-class restaurants across the country, Chef Marc brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to Nice Hospitality’s newest venture. Guests can expect to be immersed in the art of vibe dining with Italian Graffiti’s expansive wine menu, open format cooking, daily house made pasta, a full bakery, and dry aged meat program. The area’s first modern osteria will feature floral-inspired decor with one-of-a-kind art installations throughout the dining room, bar, and lounge areas.”

“With grandparents who immigrated from Italy, my most cherished family traditions centered around sharing homemade meals together. I want our guests to experience that same gracious hospitality and convivial atmosphere,” says Marc Marrone. “The popularity of HallPass at The Gateway paved the way for this new concept as we feel it has increasingly become a coveted dining and entertainment destination in Salt Lake City.”

Look for Italian Graffiti to open this summer.
