Owners of the American Grill in the Cottonwood Mall say they are opening a second restaurant this month in the Clift Building at 300 South and Main.
American Grill is owned by the Epicurious Group whose partners feel that renovation of the Block 57, bounded by Main and State streets and 200 and 300 South, will become a new center of downtown Salt Lake.David Adams, director of the operations for the Epicurious Group, said the design of the downtown location will be identical to the Cottonwood outlet with one exception - a rotisserie will replace the wood-burning stove. The rotisserie will feature chicken, pork, barbecue ribs, racks of lamb and seafood.
The restaurant will seat about 100 people and there also is a take-out counter.
The Epicurious Group also owns Eibo's and Ferrantelli at Trolley Square, Casa Del Sol at the Family Center in Midvale and the Red's Frozen Yogurt franchise. Red's frozen yogurt will be available in the new restaurant.
