The Utah Review is written by Utah locals for other Utah locals, passionate about their field of interest. We focus on the very best in food, arts, lifestyle – in fact anything with local flavor – you’ll find it here. Our tagline is ‘bringing you the best of your Utah’ and you’ll find that running through every aspect of the website.
Also we know how the Internet works – no really – we won’t be recommending you use IE6 to get the best experience. The website is built with all those fun things such as responsive design and rich snippets in mind. Plus we love social media and you’ll find us just about everywhere and anywhere.
