Big O Move
After spending a year at its location on 300 South, The Big O Doughnuts has migrated to 248 W. 900 South, right in the middle of the up-and-coming Central Ninth area. Its proximity to Vertical Diner is quickly making this part of town a hot spot for anyone looking for some low-guilt comfort food. Expect to see tried-and-true staples of Big O's menu—lemon lavender and orange cardamom have definitely tagged along for the relocation. Seeing as it's still technically autumn, pumpkin aficionados can get their hands on Big O's famous pumpkin pie in doughnut form. For a full menu, check out

Vertical Pizza Goes Void
Speaking of Vertical Diner, its sister restaurant Vertical Pizza recently closed its doors at 2280 S. West Temple. Owner Ian Brandt's final words on the former restaurant's website states that the location was too "out of the way." Brandt's post wasn't all melancholy, however—he did mention the possibility of some classic Vertical Pizza selections popping up on the menus at Sage's Café or Vertical Diner. In a world that is always in need of more pizzerias, the absence of Vertical Pizza is a harsh blow to Salt Lake's culinary community.

Red Moose After Dark
Local chef Katie Weinner has found a temporary resting place for her nomadic culinary project SLC Pop throughout December. Every weekend, Weinner and her professional crew transform Red Moose Coffee Co. (1693 S. 900 East) into a staging area for their take on international comfort food. The evening meals feature seven-item menus served in what Weinner calls an "indoor food truck." Anyone familiar with SLC Pop or her work on Top Chef knows that any opportunity to sample her cooking is worth checking out. No reservations are required, and all menu items cost less than $15.
