Yes, It's True. Say Farewell to Fresco. And Other Restaurant News.


The cutest restaurant in town is closing. Today, Main Course Management (owners of Current, etc.) announced that the beloved Fresco, everyone’s secret Italian (esque) restaurant for nearly 30 years, will be closing April 2. The company has not announced plans for the space, but if you want to eat one last time in the charmingly cramped dining room, make your reservation now for Monday-Saturday, 5-9 p.m.

Main Course has lots of other plans—read the upcoming May/June issue of Salt Lake magazine to learn about what partners Joel LaSalle and Mikel Trapp have in mind for the Salt Lake dining scene.


In happier news, Amour Spreads will soon be opening a cafe to showcase their hand-crafted jams and marmalades and the star of the show will be Amber Billingsley, one of the most talented pastry chefs in town. When you add Amber’s way with sweets to her pleasant personality and the utter niceness of Amour owners John and Casee Francis, this new place may be too sweet to bear. Go to for more information.

Other good stuff is brewing: Proper Burger and Proper Brewing just opened on Main Street, Alamexo is introducing a new menu and some other things soon; new doughnuts are coming to town; on Friday, April 1, Utah Brewers Coop (Squatters and Wasatch) will introduce the next in its UT-X series, Squasatch Hoppy Pils.

Everyone could use a breath of fresh air! 🌞⁠
