“I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for their minds, and dignity, equality and freedom for their spirits.”

-Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Salt Plate City supports Utah’s Black-owned restaurants, Black community, and the Black Lives Matter movement. Like all of you, we are disgusted by the continued police brutality against People of Color, and the escalation of violence by those in uniform during peaceful protests in Salt Lake City and around the country after the recent deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor. We are frustrated and angry at the lack of repercussions for those who continuously harm and terrorize our communities. 

This is not a political issue. This is a humanity issue. We are patriotic Americans—Not because of what this country has been, or what it is right now, but because of what it can be. We will continue to demand justice, inclusion, and change.

During this time, we would like to share with you a list of Black-owned restaurants in Utah provided to us by Brownies Brownies Brownies and Black Lives Matter Utah. We strongly recommend you support these Black-owned restaurants. Eat there, order takeout, and be sure to share your experience on social media and rate them on 3rd party sites like Google and Yelp. 

If you are aware of any Black-owned restaurants in Utah that are not represented on this list, or notice any edits needed, please leave us a comment below so we can update it immediately.
