Lunch has arrived at AQUA TERRA Steak + Sushi at City Creek Center. The daytime dining Salt Lake City has been waiting for is now being served Monday through Saturday from 11am to 2pm throughout the modernly adorned, 11,000-square-foot restaurant that first opened its doors in December.
Guests are invited to try lunch classics with an AQUA TERRA twist, bridging the gap between water and land, and breakfast and dinner. In addition to a wealth of inspired midday meal options, the restaurant is also offering the entire sushi bar menu from crispy rice and contemporary rolls to expertly sliced nigiri during lunch hours.
Lunch menu highlights include:
