Beef skewers cook as chef Jerry Liedtke from Tin Angel prepared his dish in a 2011 contest that made use of locally-produced ingredients from the Farmer's Market Saturday, July 2, 2011. Tin Angel won both the appetizer and main dish sessions to take the 2011 title. Tin Angel will open a second location inside the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Theater this summer.

SALT LAKE CITY — Dinner and a show at the Eccles Theater just got a whole lot easier.

Tin Angel, Salt Lake's Farm-to-Table bistro, will set up a second location inside the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Theater later this summer.

“We are elated to open our second location at the Eccles Theater,” said Kestrel Liedtke, Tin Angel’s general manager and co-owner in a press release. “Tin Angel at Eccles will offer theater guests the high-end, attractive and eclectic dining experience we are known for at our Pioneer Park location while adding a few new elements to engage theater patrons and downtown diners.”

The original restaurant is on 400 South across from Pioneer Park, and the new Tin Angel will be housed in the Eccles Grand Lobby, where it will continue to serve local fare from nearby farmers, distilleries and ranchers. In addition to focusing on hyper-local food productions, Tin Angel also functions as a gallery for local artists, whose art adorns the walls in the 400 South location.

Owners Jerry and Kestrel Liedtke opened Tin Angel in an old Pioneer-era home in 2007, where it has gone on to win Salt Lake Magazine's Dining Award six times, as well as Best Restaurant in 2015, 2016 and 2018.
