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.

Oasis Café Resolution Dining, Spencer’s Turns 20 and more.

Catch up on the latest foodie news.



Oasis Café Resolution Dining
It's always nice when our favorite restaurants help us stick to our New Year's resolutions by serving up tasty food that is easy on the waistband. Throughout the month of January, Oasis Café's (151 S. 500 East, 801-322-0404, oasiscafeslc.com) Chef de Cuisine Efren Benitez is offering a rotating menu of three-course meals that spotlight healthy ingredients. The event started with pan-roasted mahi mahi, and continues through the first week of February with sliced beef tenderloin and soy sauce-infused escolar. The specials are priced at $30. Don't skimp on dessert—expect to see happy endings like cappuccino cheesecake and saffron poached pears with vanilla ice cream sweetening things up.

Spencer's Turns 20
To commemorate its 20th year as one of downtown Salt Lake's finest mahogany-and-merlot steakhouses, Spencer's (255 S. West Temple, 801-238-4748) is taking a trip down memory lane with Executive Chef Sebastian Lowery putting a modern spin on a few of the dishes that made Spencer's stand out when it opened back in 1998. For the next six months, Lowery's interpretations of oysters Rockefeller, burgundy mushrooms and Spencer's famous 14-ounce ribeye will be back on the menu. In addition to the dinner menu, Spencer's cocktail list will also get a shot of nostalgia thanks to the Perfect Rob Roy—complete with a vintage Glenlivet held over from '98. Happy birthday, Spencer's!

Dinner Menu at Feldman's
Although Feldman's Deli (2005 E. 2700 South, 801-906-0369, feldmansdeli.com) has made a name for itself as a lunchtime destination, the authentic Jewish eatery has recently expanded its hours and menu to accommodate the dinnertime crowd. From Thursday to Saturday, 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., diners will be able to enjoy generous portions of meatloaf with mushroom gravy or brisket with kishka and carrots. Feldman's has also invited local musicians and other performers to entertain during dinner hours—their "Old Jews Telling Jokes" series is quickly becoming a comedy phenomenon. Keep an eye on Feldman's website for updates to the weekly lineup.
