Restaurant Review Roundup – January 2014


Ahh, the new year. The heady aroma of resolutions and best intentions, half of which are no doubt bold proclamations about exercise. I’m allowed to scoff, as I too have set more dreamy goals in the past week than I could achieve in several lifetimes. But guess what, The delicious food that stalks our streets will defeat you once more in 2014. Like me, just throw the towel in now, two days into the new years and instead dive into the following 20+ reviews from SLC local’s over the past month or so.

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.
