We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

Jasoh!, Left Fork Grill & Musumeci's


More Ogden! Before we depart Ogden, I should mention that Jasoh has moved and morphed … into Jasoh! Prime Dining & Brew Pub, now located on Historic 25th Street. Jasoh 2.0 features wood-oven pizzas (including a good one with andouille and buffalo sausages), oven-roasted lamb and steaks, burgers, pasta, and of course, beer and wine. You’ll find Jasoh at 195 25th St., Suite 6 in downtown Ogden, 801-399-0088, Jasoh.com n n

Dinner is served. Jeff Masten’s Left Fork Grill is now open for dinner until 8 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, serving pasta, prime rib, pork tenderloin and other dinner entrees in addition to its lunch menu. Left Fork Grill is at 3900 S. 68 West, 557-4860, LeftForkGrill.com

Downtown deli. For old-school, stick-to-the-ribs American-Italian deli fare it’s hard to beat Musumeci’s Italian Deli. I’d all but forgotten about this long-lived, little-known lunch spot until I began putting in time downtown recently at the City Weekly world headquarters. Musumeci’s is located down a dark corridor in a building on South State Street, not exactly a prime restaurant location. Still, Musumeci’s has managed to survive over the years serving hot and cold deli sandwiches and specialty plates like veal parmigiana, tortellini Alfredo, lasagna, ravioli, sausage & peppers and more. The deli is even open Saturdays, when the lunch special is eggplant parmigiana. The prices here are bargain basement; I paid a mere $6.05 for a big plate of veal parmigiana with bread and a large helping of spaghetti with tomato sauce last week. The place isn’t much to look at—it reminds me of classic, well-worn Italian delis in places like Boston, New York City and Philly—but the food is tasty, plentiful and cheap. There’s even what would in a nicer setting be called “atrium seating.” Check it out at 251 S. State (rear entrance) or 250 S. Floral (front entrance). Phone 596-2562, or you can fax orders to 596-2919.
