Downtown Dine O'Round encourages Utah to eat locally

Over 45 restaurants in downtown Salt Lake City are set to participate in the 13th annual Downtown Dine O’Round. The event runs September 9 – 25, including three full weekends for locals to get out and try something new. Specially-designed dinner and lunch menus have been created for the event with the frugal in mind. Two-item lunches are either $5 or $10 and three course dinners are either $15 or $35, depending on location.

“Dine O’Round is important to encourage diners to try a new restaurant or return to an old favorite during the seventeen delicious days of the event,” said Nick Como, communication director for the Downtown Alliance. “Our fantastic restauranteur partners have elevated Salt Lake City’s brand as a culinary hotspot with quality dining options, culinary talent, and varied ethnic cuisines.”


Participants include local favorites Gracie’s and Blue Iguana as well as award-winning restaurants like J. Wong’s Asian Bistro and Tin Angel Cafe. By asking for the special Dine O’Round menu, diners can choose from a variety of choices and add on additional drinks and appetizers from the regular menu if they choose. The Downtown Alliance puts on the event every year to draw new people downtown and encourage downtown residents and office workers to explore the city’s diverse dining options.

This year, the event also offers diners the opportunity to “win dinner for a year.” To enter, participants can upload photos from their Dine O’Round experience, use the hashtag #DineORound and tag @downtownslc on Instagram to automatically enter to win.
