Stuart Melling

Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you!  I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC - Utah's biggest and oldest online food magazine; 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, as well as helping 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 seventeen years.   I’m largely fueled by a critical obsession with rice, alliteration, and the use of big words I don’t understand.   I started SLC Menu as somewhere to house all the hard-to-find menus I pick up during my food writing travels. Through the archives you can find menus from the last fifteen years of the Salt Lake City dining scene.
