I’m guessing like me, you’re entering day three of turkey leftovers. Days four and five are looking more and more bleak. Each day gleeful deliciousness gives way to self loathing and a new found contempt for potatoes. Should you need a break then – from the endless replating of one day’s gluttony and over shopping – how about a meal out in the work?

With that in mind, here’s the November edition of the restaurant review roundup; a collection of reviews, write-ups, podcasts and more – all focused on what’s going on in Utahs food scene right now. Put down the gravy and freshen up those tastebuds…

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.
