SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake area restaurants have come together to launch a new site that will help people find and order curbside and takeout dining during the mandatory County-wide shutdown of all dine-in options at restaurants, taverns and bars.

The new website, www.supportsaltlakedining.com, spearheaded by Market Street restaurants, aims to help local area dining establishments continue operation during the shutdown, provide food to area residents and keep as many people employed as possible.

“To-go and curbside orders are a lifeline for our restaurants,” said Director of Operations for Market Street Grill, Fred Boutwell. “Thousands of people rely on income from the restaurant business and we want to minimize the impact that this shutdown will have our employees and our customers as well as keep Salt Lake’s economy chugging along.”

Boutwell continues to note, that amid the coronavirus outbreak, curbside and take-out dining are a safe and convenient way to enjoy great food while supporting area businesses and workers.

Food service workers are required by law to have current food handling training and permits, which are renewed every three years.
