A new restaurant in town is bringing the world of American dim sum to Salt Lake City. The new SLC Eatery located at 1017 South Main Street provides fast-casual lunch options and a fine dining experience for dinner unlike other SLC restaurants.
Owner Paul Chamberlain and Chef de Cuisine Logen Crew have worked in the Salt Lake City restaurant scene for over a decade, and this first restaurant venture brings together modern American food with a twist on dim sum service. For those not familiar with traditional dim sum service, it’s a style of food service in which carts are pushed throughout the restaurant, stacked with small plates that guests can see, pick, and choose.
“Salt Lake City deserves another great place to eat that contributes to the diversity,” says Chamberlain. “There’s no other place in town that’s doing what we are. We want to expose residents and visitors to something new, an experience they will remember, while providing excellent food.” In addition to the interactive, table-side service of SLC Eatery, the restaurant plans to incorporate many different modern cooking techniques.
“Restaurants like SLC Eatery is why Salt Lake City is the foodie capital of the Intermountain West,” says Lara Fritts, Salt Lake City’s Director of Economic Development. “Businesses that add to the diverse landscape of our economy, provide our residents and visitors a unique option they won’t find elsewhere, with a focus of blending cultures is a true alignment with our city’s goals.”
With the momentum of the Main Street America designations in Salt Lake City, Chamberlain says locating his restaurant in SLC is a smart business decision. Having access to the city’s Business Development team has provided the restauranteur with help in navigating the city’s permitting process and important contacts to ensure his success.
