If beer isn’t your thing, also on August 17th head up to Solitude for something a touch more intimate and refined. Fresh, local food is prepared and served al fresco under the majestic Wasatch Mountains. Join Chef Michael Richey, local farmers & ranchers and other savvy diners for an appetizer reception, followed by a four course dinner (with optional wine pairings) at a communal “Mountain Table” alongside Big Cottonwood Creek.
Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you! I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC; I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune. I’ve worked extensively with multiple local publications from Visit Salt Lake to Salt Lake Magazine, not least helped to consult on national TV shows.
I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have covered the Utah dining scene for the better part of fifteen years. I’m largely fueled by a critical obsession with rice, alliteration and the use of big words I don’t understand. What they’re saying about me: “Not inaccurate”, “I thought he was older”, “I don’t share his feelings”. Want to know more? This is why I am the way I am.
