After several days with no Internet connection, what do I come back online to today. Baxter’s American in the depot has closed! Oh noes! We thought Baxter’s was a great restaurant with bags of potential. It seems the local dining population didn’t make the journey down there enough. I wonder who will be brave enough to move into the ill fated spot next.
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.
