If you haven’t heard of this restaurant, it’s one of a trio of very promising new openings (including Tipica and Forage). All feature a heavy focus on locally sourced ingredients. Pago is set to open on the 27th of May, but you can get a taste of the menu before that next Wednesday and Thursday. From 4-6PM each day the restaurant will be running an open house for the public, including tours of the space and free samples from the menu. More over at http://www.pagoslc.com/
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.
