You might’ve noticed (you didn’t) I took last year off from our Reader’s Choice Awards. Frankly, don’t you feel the format is getting a little long in the tooth (you do). Category after mind numbing category. Box upon demanding box draining a quickly sapping will to live. Do you really want to cast your vote for best burger spot that opens only on the waxing gibbous (oh, err, you do, mea culpa).
This year I’m revamping the whole damn thing with a fresh approach. Instead of asking for your favorite picks by way of infinite classification – I simply want you to tell me – what were the three best food and/or drink moments you recall from the past year. And that’s it.
I’m interested in the food and drink experiences that have left an indelible impression on you; the ones you happily recount to family and friends. These moments can be from any type of establishment – a high-end restaurant, a bar, a cozy mom-and-pop diner, a fast-food drive-through, heck even a discovery at a farmer’s market.
All you need is an email address (to ensure one entry per person) and 60 spare seconds. Ready? Great, hit this link and lets go…
- Please nominate only three food/drink businesses
- If you provide more we will discard those listed over the first three
- One entry per person please, any obvious duplicates/ballot stuffing will be disregarded at our whim
- Entries will close April 15th 2023

Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you! I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC. I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have written in myopic detail about the Salt Lake City dining scene for the better part of seventeen years.
I’ve worked extensively with multiple local publications from Visit Salt Lake to Salt Lake Magazine, not least helped to consult on national TV. Pause those credits, yep, that’s me! I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune. 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.
