Tortilla Bar Grand Opening
In a similar vein to one of SLC’s newest restaurants, Taqueria 27 – Orem recently welcomed tortilla.bar to its midst. The new restaurant is owned and operated by Chef Sam Oteo who uses Mexican techniques with French and Japanese influences to create fresh, unique flavors. Chef Oteo also proudly partners with local farmers and artists showcasing the best of what Orem has to offer. Some of tortilla.bar’s most popular dishes include hanger steak tacos and calamari empanadas.
The restaurant will be hosting a grand opening celebration on December 24. Stop by and you can enjoy a special 5 course tasting menu throughout the day with musician Pablo Blaqk setting the mood, playing in the evening. Until then the restaurant opens from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and will soon be extending their hours to include breakfast.

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.
