LAST CHANCE: Eat at Roost Events before these Fraze concerts before restaurant closes for good

Roost Events, the restaurant adjacent to Fraze Pavilion, will offer regular dinner service leading up to six special events at the Fraze through mid-September.

The restaurant announced Thursday its plans to end its lease this fall.

“We will be serving classic American fare with some Roost favorites:  Blackened Salmon, Truffle Fries, Grilled Artichokes and Crab Mac ‘n’ Cheese,” Roost owner Dana Downs said. A full bar will be available.

Roost Events first opened as Park City Club in late November 2015. The mac and cheese is so good that its simply described as "chef's recipe." The cheese sauce coats penne pasta and is topped with savory cornbread crumbs for some crunch. ALLEGRA CZERWINSKI / STAFF

Roost will offer diners two separate seatings on its patio, which is a popular destination on show nights: one before the show, for those who have tickets and will be attending the performance, and one as the concert starts, for those who will be listening to music from the patio.
