Restaurant Brings Community, Art, and Great Food to College Town
I moved to Provo, Utah nearly 20 years ago to go to college at Brigham Young University. At that time, students were hard pressed to find decent restaurants and had to drive to Salt Lake City if they wanted fine cuisine or culture of any sort. It's amazing what a difference 20 years can make.
Since I first moved to Provo, culture has sprung up everywhere. It abounds in Utah County with many museums, theatre, and yes! even amazing dining choices. One restaurant in particular has taken it upon itself to offer both cuisine and culture.
On Tuesday, March 9, Communal Restaurant will host its inaugural Dinner Club, bringing an idea to downtown Provo that will celebrate both art and food with a fixed four-course menu of Communal’s critically acclaimed food and an exhibit by renowned Utah artist Brian Kershiznik.
Dinner Club will be a monthly tradition at Communal. The purpose and format of March’s Dinner Club is a first for downtown Provo, not just for the style of dining but for blending a local artist’s work into the evening. Patrons will have an opportunity to meet the artist and all of the paintings on exhibit will be for sale and on display at the restaurant for a month after Dinner Club.
I'm not sure what the March menu includes, but after enjoying a long lunch there with these four fabulous gals and trying nearly everything on the menu, I can assure you it'll be tasty! If they have soup, make sure to ask for a double bowl. Super YUMMILICIOUS!
March's Dinner Group price is $42 per person, with wine pairing available for an additional $18. Reservations are available at 6:00 and 8:00 p.m. To reserve your seat, call 801-373-8000.Photo borrowed from the lovely Black Eiffel site. Check out this post for more delicious pictures from Communal.
