Featuring select downtown Salt Lake City restaurants, the 17th annual Downtown Dine O’Round, October 18 through November 3, lets diners enjoy two-item lunches or three-course dinners at special prices.

Participating restaurants’ lunch specials are priced at $10, $15, or $20 and dinner specials are just $20, $30 or $40. 

Restaurant options range from gourmet – think Martine, HSL, Ruth’s Chris and White Horse – to casual options such as Caputo’s Market & Deli, Taco Taco and Bocata. Dine O’Round specials encourage diners to try new restaurants. Newcomers this year include Campos Coffee, CoreLife Eatery, Ginger Street, Honest Eatery and MAIZE.

The Downtown Alliance coordinates this event each fall to introduce diners in the Intermountain area to downtown’s array of great dining options. “There are more than 120 restaurants in walkable downtown Salt Lake City with a variety of styles and price points,” said Downtown Alliance executive director, Dee Brewer. “Diners can also enjoy some of the live music, theater and visual arts events happening downtown.” A summary of downtown events can be found at

Restaurant-goers do not need to sign up for anything, carry any cards or clip coupons, just ask for the Dine O’Round menu. Diners are welcome to add additional appetizers or drinks to sample additional flavors. 

Dine O’Round is made possible with strategic partnerships and corporate sponsorships with Sysco Intermountain, Smithfield Culinary and Salt Lake Chamber.
