Review round-up 02/25/12


In this edition of the restaurant review round-up, local writers sample, review and photograph the wares of over 35 local eateries. It makes my heart all aglow in these still oh so cold snowy winter days – to see so much excitement and buzz for the SLC dining scene.

Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you!  I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC and The Utah Review; I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune.  I’ve worked extensively with other local publications from Utah Stories through to Salt Lake Magazine and Visit Salt Lake.

I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have covered the Utah dining scene for more than a decade.   I’m largely fueled by Uinta Cutthroat, alliteration and the use of too many big words I don’t understand.  I ate all the pies.
