A little piece of news I forgot to mention the other day. Adam Kreisel has left ACME Burger Company, to be replaced by co-executive chefs Jason Sanders and Steve Garner. I wonder where Adam will pop up next?
Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you! I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC; I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune. I’ve worked extensively with multiple local publications from Visit Salt Lake to Salt Lake Magazine, not least helped to consult on national TV shows.
I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have covered the Utah dining scene for the better part of fifteen years. I’m largely fueled by a critical obsession with rice, alliteration and the use of big words I don’t understand. What they’re saying about me: “Not inaccurate”, “I thought he was older”, “I don’t share his feelings”. Want to know more? This is why I am the way I am.

Wow, this is interesting. I wonder what the full story was here? I would think he would try to stick around and work out the kinks before jumping. Do you know if there’s been any menu changes or more importantly – changes on the service front since his departure? That place has so much potential . . . I wonder if he was concerned about competition from this place opening up at the Gateway: http://www.thecounterburger.com/
Nope, not heard anything else. Read about his departure over on the Tribune’s website and that is about it.
That’s two new burger places in a week I have heard about, what with Five Guys Burger and Fries over in Midvale: http://www.fiveguys.com/
I guess I am going to have to work on that heart attack and do a big burger review…I can feel my cholesterol levels rising just thinking about it.
Don’t be surprised if Adam winds up doing light dinners of risotto and pasta over at the newly revamped Caputo’s Market and Deli… You can’t keep a good chef down.
Sounds like you might know something we don’t there Ted? 😉
That’s the good news. The bad news is that Adam likely won’t be back until Fall. He’s busy being a dad and tending to his young daughter.
Ted, any word on when the ‘pasteria’ might be open?
