Under New Management

A New Face to Lamb’s Grill  

After over sixty years in the business, John Speros is finally retiring. “I think someone with a little more vision and innovation should take over,” said Speros. He has sold his family business to Francis Liong, who has spent his life in the restaurant business and intends to keep the core popular menu items as they are. Liong plans to modernize the POS  system and replace some of the less popular menu items. But he intends to maintain the overall vision that the Speros family started with Bill Lamb over 100 years ago.

Now Open

Located at 268 S. State, chef Matthew Lake, a NYC transplant, has brought a fine dining experience to this upscale city location. Feast on a wide variety of tempting entrees or just sit back with some wine and cheese. Phone 801-779-4730 for reservations or visit
