Where to wine & dine with your Valentine

By Ted Scheffler
POSTED // Feb 4,2014 - As I say every year at this time: You and your honey don’t have to splurge and dine out on Valentine’s Day. There are plenty of other options. Maybe there’s no honey in the picture at all, and you’d prefer to stay at home with a big bowl of caviar all to yourself, watching 9 1/2 Weeks for the 18th time. There’s nothing wrong with that. Or an excellent Valentine’s Day celebration might entail nothing more than, in the words of the Persian poet Omar Khayyám, “A jug of wine, a loaf of bread, and thou.”

POSTED // Jan 28,2014 - Too often, I take terrific, independent, long-standing businesses like Gourmandise The Bakery (250 S. 300 East, 801-328-3330) for granted. Well, if you haven’t visited Gourmandise in a while, you should. The bakery/cafe has undergone a renovation, and the re-designed interior looks terrific.

Alamexo Mexican Kitchen

The new Alamexo is reborn with upscale south-of-the-border fare

By Ted Scheffler
POSTED // Jan 24,2014 - In January 2012, I reviewed the then-new Zy restaurant. I won’t beat a dead horse, but I found the food at Zy to be confusing. There were more misses than hits, and some dishes simply puzzled me.

Malbec Six-Pack

Exploring the Malbec of Mendoza, Argentina

By Ted Scheffler
POSTED // Jan 20,2014 - During a recent dinner at Bodega/The Rest, I was chatting with bar manager Caleb Cannon about Malbec. It’s a wine varietal he likes to include in the restaurant’s wine selection, in part due to its versatility, but also for its value.
