Caterers open restaurant downtown

The name remains 3's Co. Catering, but Christine Simon, Deana Brower and Sarah Lange have opened a location in downtown Idaho Falls, 368 A Street, next door to Great Harvest Bread Co.
"We needed more space," Simon said. "We were having to turn away jobs."

3's Co. has been catering events for ARTI and the Idaho Falls Arts Council, so the downtown location makes extra sense. They also do weddings and special events. On Oct. 12, they will be doing a food and beer pairing in collaboration with Deschutes Brewery.

Since opening Sept. 13, their cafe is open for lunch Monday through Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Starting Nov. 1, they will be open they will be open for bunch the first Sunday of every month. It will be served family style, one menu, one price.

The menu will be changing every few weeks. They plan to focus on seasonal foods made with local produce whenever possible, Brower said.

Does what they make have a name? "You can call it 'clean comfort food' or "slow food,'" Simon said. "Everything we make is fresh and made from scratch."

The downtown phone number is (208) 522-1510. The Web address is http://www.3scompanycatering.net/ and the e-mail is 3scompanycatering@gmail.com
