Gastronomic Salt Lake City is Utah’s longest running blog covering the food and beverage scene
Since 2007 we’ve covered what’s good and great about the food scene in Salt Lake City. That means everything from information on new restaurants to getting to grips with interesting local products. In 2016 the site saw more than 210,000 page views.
In addition to covering the food scene as news unfurls we also have a number of recurring articles:
Restaurant review roundup – every month we roundup every review and writeup about the local dining scene from every writer and pod caster we can find. Follow us, and you’ll be following everyone else as well!
New restaurants – at regular intervals we recap every new opening across town.
Menu watch – each month we break down any interesting news affecting local restaurant menus: specials, discounts, new offerings, chef changes, you name it.
Tales from the DABC – Liquor laws are quirky in Utah. We recap all the DABC meetings so you know what’s happening and what’s coming online.
Our head writer Stuart has worked as a freelance restaurant reviewer for the Salt Lake Tribune (2011-2016) and is and a member of the Association Of Food Journalists. Stuart has also written for Visit Salt Lake and Ski City, The Utah Review and Utah Stories.

We receive *a lot* of press releases. Oh. So Many. If you want yours to stand out from the jetsam and flotsam, here are a few tips to get noticed:
* No PDF files and no image files with text please. Make sure your copy is in an easily accessible format like a txt or doc file, or hey crazy now, just inline in the email. If we have to hand re-type your menu from an image file, chances are we won’t.
* Hi-resolution graphics. The web is media driven and this industry is fabulously photo friendly. If you’re in the food and beverage business and don’t have pretty pictures of what you do, you’re in the wrong industry. Stop what you’re doing now.
* Call us. Drop us a line on (801) 448 3343 and make sure we got your information. Sending frantic emails on the day that your event is happening – guess what – too late.
* Seriously, images! If you don’t provide quality media supporting your story, we can’t share it on social media. We have more than 10,000 followers. It’s going to get next to no traction with no supporting media. Ask us if you need any photographer recommendations, we know several who won’t cost an arm and a leg.
