Michael McHenry and Tyler Stokes (The McHenry Group)

Known industry disrupters, Michael McHenry, Founder of The McHenry Group, and Chef Tyler Stokes say they are changing the game by, “Bringing a progressive concept featuring bold flavors and culture to the streets of downtown Salt Lake City,” in Spring 2019.

McHenry’s and Stokes’ collaboration should come at no surprise. Their shared desire to create unique experiences in their dining rooms will welcome soon-to-be regulars. Just as we’ve seen him prove in his artistry at Provisions and Dashi, Chef Stokes’ award-winning reputation and dedication to real food will drive the bold flavors of this menu. Those bold flavors will be met with McHenry’s mold-breaking reputation as Utah’s Restaurateur of the Year does what he does best and creates a disruptive brand in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City.

Construction walls have gone up at The 324 Building (324 South State Street) in downtown Salt Lake City, veiling the location of Stokes’ and McHenry’s collaboration. “Our inventive concept will challenge the status quo by bringing real food to the people,” said Stokes.
