We need your help.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

Portion Control



My family recently dined at Talisker on Main in Park City. We had an amazing time—we had the most incredible service, and the food couldn’t have tasted better. However, I take exception to Ted Scheffler’s statement [“Not-So-New Kid in Town,” March 18, 2010, City Weekly] that “the portion sizes aren’t skimpy; they are built for sharing.” Not.

Everyone loved what they ate—all four bites of it, and then went home and ate again. I was not hungry, and so I only ordered the Brussel sprout salad and the fried egg and pork belly appetizer. My husband wanted a bite of my egg and pork belly, and that small bite was a third of what was on my plate.
