The food court has actually been open for several months, but it is steadily expanding in a bit of obscurity. With the ongoing construction of the massive City Creek multi-use development dominating two downtown blocks, the food court, currently with five vendors, is accessible only through an entrance on State Street between South Temple and 100 South and from the Eagle Gate and Key Bank office buildings on each side of it. Four more vendors are scheduled to open during the spring.
City Creek has been "a real marathon, and today … we are now passing the 20-mile mark of this marathon," said Mark B. Gibbons, president of City Creek Reserve, Inc., the Church's arm that oversees the development. "We've received our second wind. The end is in sight and we're excited about the things that are coming."
