Cottonwood Heights, Utah - Local residents are invited to grab a Bite in the Heights during the first restaurant tour in Cottonwood Heights. From Aug. 20 to 31, restaurants will open their doors to residents to try their food in a festival that celebrates the local cuisine.
According to Peri Kinder, the business development coordinator of Cottonwood Heights, the idea came from seeing other communities host events where residents were encouraged to dine around the area.
“We talked to the restaurants and they thought they’d give it a shot,” Kinder said.
So far, eight restaurants have signed up to participate, though Kinder believes more will join. The confirmed restaurants are Market Street Grill, Cottonwood Heights Café, Dragon Isle, Johnniebeefs, the Protein Foundry, Carl’s Café and Cancun Café.
During Bites in the Heights, residents from around the valley are invited to visit as many of these restaurants as they can. Diners can share their photos of menu items or the restaurant on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #CHFoodie for a chance to win gift cards to their favorite dining spots.
Diners will also be rating the restaurants and awards will be given for various attributes of the dining experience such as best service, best menu item and best atmosphere.
The restaurants during the event will offer a special menu just for Bites in the Heights. These prix-fixe menus will be either $5/$10 for lunch and $15/$20 for dinner. Diners can still order off the regular menu if they want.
Kinder said the city anticipates thousands of diners coming into the city to enjoy the food tour.
“We’d like to have as many come as possible. We have really good food, really good places,” Kinder said. “I hope residents find their new favorite place or they try something new and get acquainted with the area.”
