Date Night: Culinary Crafts October Pop-Up Restaurant

By Tessa Woolf October 19, 2015

WHAT: This summer we told you about Culinary Crafts newest venture: a series of one-of-a-kind, one-night-only, pop-up restaurants. Following the success of their sold-out August and September pop-ups, founder Mary Crafts-Homer, Chef David James Robinson, and their team of food + drink aficionados are back this month hosting a bountiful 10-course autumn feast. The evening is a date-night must for foodie couples or couples still in search of their wedding caterer (taste it to believe it!).


The exclusive dining experience will be held at The Tasting Room, Culinary Crafts loft-like event space featuring exposed brick walls and large glass windows, in downtown Salt Lake City. If you're looking for an urban wedding venue in the heart of SLC, with top-notch catering facilities to boot, look no further.


The October pop-up restaurant is co-hosted by The Green Urban Lunch Box. A portion of all ticket sales will go to support the local nonprofit group's programs, including urban agriculture and providing hunger relief.


Created by Crafts-Homer herself, this month's menu showcases the best of Utah's fall harvest and will include fruit and veggies from The Green Urban Lunch Box gardens. Menu highlights include Mesquite-Grilled Rocky Mountain Red Trout with The Green Urban Lunch Box Apple Chutney, Sous Vide Citrus-Marinated Snake River Tenderloin of Beef, Utah Amano Chocolate Espresso Pot de Crème with Utah Pistachio Biscotti,  and so much more.


Crafts-Homer will play hostess for the evening, and will guide guests through the culinary, multi-course journey. Chef Robinson will also be present to share his knowledge, as well as Shawn Peterson, executive director for The Green Urban Lunch Box.


Eating well and doing good for our community? Now that's something we can get behind.
