Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski recently presented the Key to the City to Tom Guinney, owner and chief of operations of Gastronomy Inc. The honor recognizes his 36 years of leadership in Salt Lake City’s restaurant and hospitality industry, contributions to the local economy and cultural scene, and for his support of numerous philanthropies and historic preservation work. This is only the second time the mayor has awarded the Key to the City. Guinney has spent his entire life in the hospitality industry. He moved to Salt Lake City in 1980 from California, where he established a track record as an executive chef and manager of fine dining establishments. He joined in a business partnership with Tom Seig and John Williams, who opened the New Yorker in 1978. Forming Gastronomy Inc., the three men went on to open Market Street Grill, Oyster Bar, Market Street Broiler and other restaurants in Salt Lake City. In 2000 and 2007, Gastronomy opened a Market Street Grill, Oyster Bar and Fresh Fish Market in Cottonwood Heights and West Jordan.
