Beltex Meats – The award winning butcher Beltex moves to delivery only for the time being. Call to place your order. Link.
Word came to me just in the last 24 hours of the brand new website – barwears.com. The website is the brainchild of several local designers looking to support the local industry via clever apparel. 100% of the profits generated are to be directly donated to Project Tip Your Server. Check out the Coachman’s T-shirt with the “I was pleasantly surprised” slogan. If you know, you know…
This is a trend I’d love to see continue. Many businesses are starting to look at how they can transition their events into online formats. Here’s the first two I’ve heard of.
Caputo’s – The downtown gourmet hotspot looks set to continue with their well regarded series of educational events. More info.
Yoshi’s Japanese Grill – Possibly offering a sushi class online based on demand. The restaurant writes, “You would go to the Murray/Downtown location between 4pm-6pm to pick up all the needed supplies. You will be sent a link to join a Zoom video call at 6:45pm. Chef Eddeesan will walk you through how to roll your own sushi roll! Each sushi making “kit” would be $25 and it makes 3 different sushi rolls. We thought this might be a fun date/family night thing to do.” More info.

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”.
