“Oh no, you’ve got to go downtown, George. It’s all downtown. Just like the song says.”

-Mr. Wilhelm, Seinfeld [1996]

Just saying you are going downtown for dinner immediately conjures up images of fine dining, valet parking, and stuffy maître d’s thumbing their nose at Ferris Bueller. But don’t worry, the Best Downtown Salt Lake City Restaurants aren’t limited to fine dining and $50 plates. We are a growing metropolis, and our downtown restaurant options are growing just as fast to accommodate new tastes, ideas, and  personalities. As the epicenter of culinary innovation in the Valley, Downtown Salt Lake City’s restaurant scene has a little something for everyone. Whether you want fine Italian cuisine, cutting edge new American plates, exciting new cuisine fusions, the best spicy chicken sandwich you’ve ever had, or the freshest fish flown in daily for sushi – it’s all Downtown.
