BRIO Tuscan Grille's newest location in City Creek Center will partner with Ballet West in a Make a Difference Monday event on Monday, Aug. 19, with a portion of proceeds donated to building the Ballet a new home. Guests will have the opportunity to mingle with the dancers, stars of the CW's "Breaking Pointe" television show, throughout the day.
BRIO (meaning "lively" or "full of life") is an upscale affordable restaurant serving authentic northern Italian food. Guests will enjoy BRIO's northern Italian fare in the new City Creek Center location, which opened on June 27.
"BRIO City Creek is thrilled to help local arts continue to grow, and we feel privileged to help the Ballet build their new home," said Bob Boyland, BRIO City Creek general manager.
Through Make a Difference Mondays, a concept unique to BRIO, the restaurant will donate 20 percent of food proceeds on Monday, Aug. 19, to the Ballet.
Ballet West, with 37 company members, 10 second company members and a thriving academy that trains dancers of all ages, ranks among the top professional ballet companies in America. Salt Lake's own Ballet West dancers are featured in the CW television show "Breaking Pointe," which follows the company through rehearsals, performances and everyday life.
BRIO features lunch, brunch, happy hour and dinner and is open seven days a week. Hours are from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
BRIO City Creek is the restaurant's second location in Utah. (BRIO Fashion Place opened in 2011.) The restaurant is owned by Bravo Brio Restaurant Group, which is based in Columbus, Ohio.
