Top Whatever 

Pin It

I can understand a Top 20, or even a Top 30, but in our limited culinary scene, I can’t imagine 100 restaurants being absolutely remarkable [“Dining Guide,” Oct. 14, City Weekly]. So if you needed a gimmicky number, why not go with Ted’s Top 50? Or better yet, Ted’s Top 10? Watering down your newspaper to promote restaurants hoping to be called “mediocre” at best, is a little insulting for the few of us who actually like to eat good food and know the difference between good and bad—for example, everyone knows The Pie is better than Este any day of the week.

But that’s not the most disappointing part. Although I understand taste is an opinion, I can’t help wondering why my favorite restaurant, Epic in Midvale, didn’t get mentioned while a tasteless joint surviving on hype, such as The Bayleaf Café, gets top ratings. Really? So we only like restaurants if we can look at skyscrapers while we’re eating? Yeah, let’s go with a top 10 next year.

  • A Strange and Barbaric Practice

    In the well-written City Weekly cover story on circumcision ["Circumcision Decision," Sept. 17], the God of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions is credited with beginning this practice: God demands that the 99-year- old Abraham cut off his foreskin in order to prove his loyalty.

  • Mike Noel's Resistance to Reason

    I enjoyed Colby Frazier's cover story about state Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab ["The Herd Bull of the House," May 14, City Weekly]. I attended the Great Public Lands Gamble Rally at the Capitol in January 2015, at which Noel audaciously stepped up to the microphone to attempt a refutation (the gospel according to St. Mike) of the "lies" being perpetrated by the proponents of public lands.
