Various Northern Utah Restaurants
Review: City Weekly review
Ted Scheffler of the City Weekly heads North-wards this week. Burger Stop (Layton), Paisano’s Italian Grill (Layton), The CheeseSteak Deli (Sunset), Philadelphia Sub Shop (Clearfield), Boston’s Restaurant & Sports Grill (Layton), Little Taste of Britain (Layton) and Zucca Trattoria (Ogden) all get brief mentions, phew!
Rusted Sun Pizzeria
2010 S State St, Salt Lake City, UT 84115
Review: Tribune review
In the Tribune Lesli J. Neilson, goes gaga over Rusted Sun Pizzeria’s stock in trade. Lesli comments: “While the Wasatch Front has plenty of pizza joints, Rusted Sun is a standout.”. High praise indeed! I doubt I’ll ever get to taste their delicious sounding Pizzas, what with having an overt aversion to cheese – I do love their name though.

GSLC review: Au Naturale
Probably the most talked about new restaurant in town is Sugarhouse’s Au Naturale. The Deseret Morning news is the latest to check out their healthy spin on fast food. The verdict? A big thumbs up from resident critic Stacey Kratz. Check out our recent review too.
Ginza Japanese Cuisine & Sushi Bar
715 E. 12300 South, Draper
Review: In Utah This Week review
“Draperites” rejoice as downtown’s Ginza opens a second location in your neighbourhood. In Utah This Weeks’s Amanda Chamberlain says the new “spot flaunts a fresher face, with brand-new everything, such as contemporary furniture and light fixtures, as well as clean walls adorned by artwork”. Amanda’s review seems to indicate that the food maintains the quality of the original location.
Mind you, I’m not sure what these sushi traditionalist’s would have to say about the distinctly un-authentic sounding X-Roll and accompanying sauce!

Review: Your Heart Out Review
Website: Company website
Danny Kourianos’s ‘Dude Food’ spot on Your Heart Out, covers the wingalicious (I’m trademarking that phrase by the way) Wing Coop this week. If memory serves, the last I heard about the Wing Coop was in the Deseret News. Danny’s review concurs with that older report, both give high marks for the wings and mention-worthy array of 15 sauces.
Review: Salt Lake Food Blog review
Finally, Krista Smith’s food blog samples various sushi delights, taking in Sapporo, Tsunami and I Love Sushi. Sushi is a hot topic right up there with religion and politics, so no comments from me on this one!
Come and discuss this post and other Salt Lake City restaurants on our new foodie discussion forum here.
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.

Thanks for the link to that Sushi Bullies article. Funny stuff!
Yeah I thought that was pretty funny 🙂
It’s been awhile but I’ve been less than impressed with my visits to the Wing Coop. I’ve been to the Olympus Cove and Taylorsville locations. I wrote about the wings on my blog awhile back. I also had lunch there. Sandwich, fries, and soft drink cost around nine dollars. the sandwich was forgettable, and there were more fries than I could eat. The whole thing just seemed poorly calibrated, more of a business concept than a labor of love.
Rusted Sun Pizzeria is just the opposite. Wally has been doing it right for a long time, and the quality has never slipped. I recommend the Mediterranean Calzone, or if you’re feeling adventurous, the Buffalo Chicken Calzone.
