Este Moves North
Many fans of Este Pizza's three Salt Lake Valley locations similarly became visitors to Este Deli, and were disappointed when the owners announced the closing of the 1702 S. Main location in April of this year. Finally, Este has found a new location—right next door to the City Weekly offices. Este Deli is scheduled to re-open at 238 S. Main in January, bringing back its menu of hot and cold East Coast-style hoagies, from specialty items to build-your-own options. Visit to keep updated on a specific opening date.

Avenues Bistro Changes Hands
Social media posts confirmed some brief sad news: As of Nov. 19, Avenues Bistro on Third had ceased operations after five years. At press time, general manager Kathie Chadbourne had not responded to an email regarding the reasons for the closure, but the quirky neighborhood restaurant hadn't always had an easy time. It was forced to close its patio in 2013 after it was determined that it wasn't zoned for outdoor seating, and shuttered its basement speakeasy a few months later for not having a proper operating permit or fire-suppression system. However, as of press time, the bistro's Facebook page showed that the restaurant will reopen Dec. 1 under new owners.

Arena Eats
It was an eventful off-season for the Utah Jazz—with the departure of All-Star forward Gordon Hayward—but also an eventful off-season for their home. Vivint SmartHome Arena underwent an extensive $125-million renovation, including a new box office and upholstered, cushioned seats. The food options also got an upgrade, with several new vendors ensuring that fans aren't limited to traditional sports-venue fare. Among the new dining offerings: Provo-based Cubby's burgers; Mexican food via Park City's El Chubasco; hand-tossed pizzas from Maxwell's; and R&R Barbecue, adding to its existing locations in Salt Lake City, South Jordan, Lehi and Farmington.
