Gastronomic Salt Lake City is Utah’s longest running blog covering the food and beverage scene

Since 2007 we’ve covered the best and brightest on the Salt Lake food and drinks scene. From wine dinners to wine releases – new restaurants to menus at old favorites – we try to cover it all. And more. We run standalone featured articles from time to time, plus each month you’ll find a number of recurring articles aimed at keeping you fully upto date on the dining scene:

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!

Dining events – we highlight the most interest food, wine and beer events in Utah. We also have run a dining calendar that lists every event across town too.

Menu watch – each month we break down any interesting news affecting local restaurant menus: specials, discounts, new offerings, chef changes, you name it.

It’s a wrap – At the end of each month a review of any and all important news we missed. From patio openings to the weird and wonderful things that are Utah Liquor laws.

New restaurants – at regular intervals we recap every new opening across town.

You can follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.

Social media algorithms can be funny old things though. To ensure you never miss a single update from us, subscribe to our newsletter. We’ll drop you an email every time a story is live on the site. We’ll never share your email address with anyone other than the company we use to run the newsletter.

Press releases

We receive *a lot* of press releases. Oh. So Many. Press. Realeases. 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 15,000 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.

  1. Hey Stuart, has the search function been removed from the website? I haven’t been a frequent visitor lately (long story), but I was certain there was a search function earlier..

  2. The search feature was lost in the last site redesign shuffle. There wasn’t the site real estate and you can pretty much use Google to interrogate any website these days, so it’s days were numbered.

    If you need any help looking for something in particular though just email me at stuart@gastronomicslc.com
