At long last, the retail spaces along Regent Street are starting to open. The mid-block street was revitalized along with the opening of Eccles Theater almost three years ago. Patrons have welcomed Last Course, Fireside, and the ever-popular Pretty Bird, but most of the spaces have remained vacant until now. With three more new restaurants, the corridor connecting City Creek Center and Gallivan Plaza will only continue to liven up. We can’t wait to see what else is in store for Regent Street!

Recently Opened

Five Sushi Brothers | 67 West 100 South
What started out as a late-night sushi delivery service quickly turned into a popular Provo restaurant. Almost three years later, Five Sushi Brothers opened up in Salt Lake City last month right in front of the Salt Palace. Stop by for some tasty rolls, and keep an eye out for the late night delivery service starting in SLC very soon.

Heart & Seoul Karaoke | 67 West 100 South
Neighboring Five Sushi Brothers is a new recreation destination. Heart & Seoul is modeled after the “norebang” karaoke rooms found across Korea. Bring a group of friends, reserve a private room, and select from more than 30,000 songs. It’s a karaoke experience you won’t want to miss.

Honest Eatery | On Regent Street
If you’ve been going to Jazz games this season, there’s a good chance you’ve seen the açaí bowls from Honest Eatery. After some construction delays, they just opened up a storefront right next to Last Course on Regent Street. Protein shakes and premium toast options make for a perfect breakfast or lunch, or you can customize your own açaí bowl with a variety of gourmet toppings.

Mali Thai | 238 South Main Street
We were sad to see Este Deli depart from Main Street, but before we knew it Mali Thai came in to take its place. The transition was so quick, you’ll still find some of the window stickers left from the deli. The spot is only open for lunch on weekdays, but it may just prove to be a hidden gem of a lunch spot to break up your workday.

Seon Korean Barbecue | 423 West 300 South
Combine all-you-can-eat with Korean barbecue and you’re sure to have a winner. Seon just opened up just west of Pioneer Park. Come hungry because you’re sure to get your fill of meat and sides prepared fresh just for you.

Opening Soon

MAIZE | On Regent Street
One of Salt Lake’s most popular food trucks is opening up is getting a permanent home on Regent Street. The taco shop is looking mostly furnished, and is dues to open up any day now!

Sweet Rolled Tacos | 157 South Rio Grande (At The Gateway)
We all know in the Instagram age, how food looks is just as important as how it tastes. Well, Sweet Rolled Tacos has a rainbow of colorful ice cream tacos ready to shine on social media. The bright waffle cones shells are filled with a variety of creative rolled ice cream flavors and toppings. With a few stores in southern California, the chain will be expanding to The Gateway this summer.

Turmeric | On Regent Street
The second location for this Indian restaurant from Draper will be joining the dining scene on Regent Street. Keep your eye out for an Indian menu filled with curry adding a bit of international flair to downtown very soon.
