Sam Fox, eleven-time James Beard-nominated restauranteur and founder of Fox Restaurant Concepts, is opening the doors of the much-anticipated Flower Child in Salt Lake City by the second half of 2024. More than your typical restaurant, Flower Child is a place where you can come and fill your soul (and belly) with goodness. The healthy, vibrant, good-for-you beloved concept will be located at Foothill Village, one of Salt Lake City’s most recognized neighborhood for over 65 years. The center is undergoing a multi-million-dollar renovation which will include Flower Child’s new space. The team looks forward to spreading its soul-satisfying mission with positively good vibes to its first location in Utah.
“We are thrilled at this opportunity to bring Flower Child to Utah,” says Sam Fox, founder of Fox Restaurant Concepts. “We knew Salt Lake City would be the perfect location to plant more roots. From our diverse menu with something for everyone, and our commitment to hospitality, we hope the community loves this spot as much as we do.”
Flower Child’s menu caters to all lifestyles – vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, on-the-goers, and anything goes. The customizable menu will feature fan-favorite dishes coupled with feel-good indulgences like the Mother Earth Bowl with ancient grains, sweet potato, portobello mushroom, avocado, cucumber, broccoli pesto, charred onion, leafy greens, red pepper miso vinaigrette, and hemp seed; the infamous oh-so-creamy, gluten-free Mac & Cheese with aged white cheddar and parmesan; the Chicken Enchiladas with guajillo chile, smoked gouda, poblano cream, organic black bean, roasted corn, and avocado; the Flying Avocado Wrap with smoked turkey, gouda, romaine, tomato, and avocado hummus; and the Brussels Sprouts & Organic Kale salad with red grape, organic apple, pink grapefruit, white cheddar, smoked almond, and apple cider vinaigrette.
Stop in to enjoy the good vibes and happy atmosphere the energetic team serves up daily, treat yourself to a meal on the beautiful patio, soak in the light, airy energy that flows throughout the space, or order online or through the app for fast and easy takeout.
“Flower Child is committed to fully integrating into the communities surrounding their restaurants,” Clare Walsh, Senior Director of Leasing Strategy at Asana Partners, says. “Part of our vision for Foothill Village has been to attract neighborhood-serving businesses like this that will draw residents to the property over and over. We’re excited to partner with them to bring a fresh, creative dining option to the neighborhood.”
