Restaurant review roundup – November 2017 April 6, 2018November 25, 2017 by Stuart Melling Alamexo Cantina – plantain cakes. Credit, SLC EatsI’m guessing like me, you’re entering day three of turkey leftovers. Days four and five are looking more and more bleak. Each day gleeful deliciousness gives way to self loathing and a new found contempt for potatoes.

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 a critical obsession with rice, alliteration and the use of too many 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” Signup to our free newsletter and never miss a single update.
