New chef at Wild Grape Bistro

Salt Lake City’s Wild Grape Bistro has named David Bear Stromness as its new executive chef. Stromness, the former sous chef at Salt Lake’s Metropolitan, has 20 years’ culinary experience, having honed his skills at restaurants in Utah, Hawaii, New York, Oregon and California. His love for food began at an early age, cooking with his father, Joe. Stromness replaces Chad Tanner, who left the restaurant in April 2013. "We ran without a chef for a year taking our time to find the right person," said owner Troy Greenhawt. Wild Grape Bistro is at 481 E. South Temple; 801-746-5565.
