What a year—it’s hard to believe that 2014 is coming to a close! It’s been a wonderful year with many exciting changes and challenges. Thinking back on 2014, we wanted to share some highlights.

In recent months at Pizzeria 712 we have had some building improvements along with the exciting announcement that the Midtown 360 development project is back in the works!

Communal-menu Communal–Newman

In 2014 we celebrated Communal‘s 5th anniversary! Chef Newman came on board and we introduced new traditions like our Farm-to-Table dinners. To celebrate 5 years, we upgraded several pieces of kitchen equipment and small wares to the delight of back of house and service staff alike.

Communal was also one of several Provo restaurants featured by Becky & Josh Rosenthal in their cookbook “Salt Lake City Chef’s Table: Extraordinary Recipes from the Crossroads of the West.” It was exciting to work with them and to see their many months of photographing, tasting, testing, and researching bound into a beautiful volume that celebrates the food and talent of our area!

At Mountain West Burrito, we painted and primed and made minor renovations to our interior of the Provo store (including a mural by local Utah artists), partied for Cinco de Mayo, introduced street tacos to our menu, and have enjoyed having Waffle Love as our new neighbors.

We continued our new style of service and also celebrated two years at the Shaky Leaf Café!

Throughout the year we worked with organizations and causes in our local community or that hit close to home in other ways—Community Action Services, Share Our Strength, and Downtown Provo. During the summer we partnered with Downtown Provo to put on a second year of Fresh Wednesdays.


We are excited to celebrate the new year with you and to see what 2015 will bring!
