Final Call for Mom
I received some last-minute info on Mother's Day specials from a few restaurants this week, so if you're still looking for a place to take Mom on her day, consider these options: Pago ( is featuring a three-course brunch menu, while sister restaurant Finca ( offers a lush brunch buffet with items like Faroe Island salmon and eggs Benedict. Hearth ( in Ogden hosts brunch with menu items that include charcuterie, beef tartare, citrus-cured salmon, espresso-rubbed elk and eggs, and lots of other tasty choices. A three-course brunch menu is the highlight of Mother's Day at Trestle Tavern (, with tempting dishes like spaetzle and cheese, grilled trout, pork schnitzel, lamb burger and fried Camembert.

Back in the Saddle
Bambara's Chef Nathan Powers—along with more than 250 other chefs and members of the culinary community—embark on a 300-mile bike ride from Santa Rosa, Calif., on May 16 for Chefs Cycle to raise money and awareness to end childhood hunger. An avid cyclist, Powers' personal goal—as part of the Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants team—is to raise $7,500 for No Kid Hungry, a nonprofit campaign connecting kids in need with nutritious foods, and that helps teach parents and families how to cook healthy, low-cost meals. "As chefs, our passion is food—in and out of the kitchen," Powers says via email. "I am proud to be part of a movement that ensures children and families in need have access to nutritious, affordable meals, and builds awareness of ways our communities can solve the challenge of childhood hunger." Donations to the Powers/Kimpton effort can be made at

Taste of Tuacahn
Located on the edge of Tuacahn's ( red rock amphitheater, the venue's new Snow Canyon Café is scheduled to open May 22. The café will serve fresh, quick and wholesome meals year-round, with an emphasis on hot entrées, soups, hot and cold panini sandwiches, sides and housemade desserts, with a pre-show dinner option available to patrons. Newsies, Shrek the Musical and Mamma Mia! are among this summer's theatrical offerings.
