The two main restaurants at the new City Creek Center — The Cheesecake Factory and Texas de Brazil — haven't got me salivating.
But the downtown mall, which opened this morning, has one more large restaurant in the works, said developer Robert Taubmann, on Wednesday during a media tour of the mall.
He wouldn't name the restaurant, but did say it would be located south of the Nordstrom Plaza, putting it on 100 South and west of Main. It's an ideal location near the Salt Palace Convetion Center.
Still, I think I'd rather eat at one of these 13 restaurants that aren't part of the mall.
