Donovan's = Kaput

Posted By on October 6, 2010, 11:39 AM

Donovan's Steak & Chop House on Pierpont Avenue in downtown Salt Lake City has officially closed. --- I've known about the pending closure for a while, but honored the management's request to keep that information in confidence until the affected employees were notified. 

It's a shame that Donovan's has been forced to close "due to economic reasons." I was there a few nights ago and the place was very busy. Still, high-end restaurants in Salt Lake City are a tough sell, especially a steak house when there are at least four other steak houses just a short walk from Donovan's. 

Manager Casey Bulkley is devoting his time at present helping to find work for Donovan's employees who lost their jobs, which included him. He's a terrific general manager, if you know anybody looking for one. The service staff at Donovan's was excellent. You could built a new restaurant around them. 

Here is a link to a review review and video I did about Donovan's - for the memories...
