Park City Provisions by Riverhorse

Head up to the very top of Park City’s main street and you will find Park City Provisions, a project of dining mainstay Riverhorse on Main. The building is an interesting setup, with the restaurant on the bottom level, a grocery market and grab-and-go deli on the second level, and the beautiful Imperial House on the top levels. Recently Provisions unveiled their new dinner menu for the restaurant.

“We’re excited to unveil our refreshed focus on Provisions by Riverhorse’s full-service restaurant experience,” says Executive Chef Seth Adams. “The addition of our dinner service gives our guests a chance to enjoy our casual take on a sit-down dinner menu without sacrificing the exceptional service our guests come to expect at any of our Riverhorse establishments.”

The menu offers a nice selection of options, with dishes like fries with parmesan, garlic, herbs, and fry sauce, and other selections like nachos, wild game chili, and crispy Buffalo chicken bites.

 

For the main entrées, diners have the choice of halibut tacos, smoked BBQ baby back ribs with a delicious apple fennel slaw, Provisions burger on a brioche bun with a truffle mustard aioli, goat cheese stuffed chicken breast, and my favorite dish: the super-rich buffalo short rib stroganoff, with cognac cream and wild mushrooms.

Provisions could be a place where locals go to get away from the crowds and enjoy a nice low-key dinner without paying Main Street prices.

Deer Valley’s New Winter Menus

You’d be hard pressed to find higher quality dining at any ski resort in the country than the culinary selections at Deer Valley. Not only does their food blow away most other resorts’ offerings, they also compete with some of the state’s best restaurants, period. Don’t believe me? Their contemporary cuisine restaurant, Mariposa, was recently named by Zagat as Utah’s best restaurant. Not best ski resort restaurant. Best restaurant. From coffee and baked goods at Deer Valley Grocery Café, fresh sustainably-sourced seafood at the Seafood Buffet, brick oven cuisine at The Brass Tag, or their AAA Four Diamond restaurant, Goldener Hirsch, Deer Valley always sets themselves apart from the rest of the ski world with their culinary offerings. 

The resort recently rolled out their new winter menu for the upcoming ski season, and I was able to attend a media tasting event to check out their new offerings. Although the famous chili and incredible baked goods will of course remain on the menu, a variety of locally-sourced and environmentally-conscious ingredients have found their way on the various menus across the resort.

See the photos below to get a small glimpse of the resort’s newest offerings. Not shown are the Silver Star Farms wagyu short ribs, with fall squash, Matsutake mushrooms, celeriac, burgundy truffles, and truffle-soy jus from Goldener Hirsch. It was the best plate of the night.

From Fireside dining: grilled guinea hen, meyer lemon and fresh thyme gnocchi, crispy pancetta, cured egg yolk, fava beans, slow roasted tomatoes, and smoked gouda cream sauce.

This one blew my mind. A 20 layer butternut schichttorte with a vanilla brandy glaze and apple cider caramel. The chef dehydrated butternut squash then milled it into a flour.

Bistro 222 has changed things up, hiring a new chef and redoing the entire menu. Chef Brady Gray, formerly of Ruth’s Chris and Baci Trattoria prior to that, has taken the helm and rewrote the entire lunch and dinner menus. “Casual but elegant” is a proper description of both the bistro’s décor as well as its food. The restaurant is surrounded by towering windows looking out to downtown.

We tried various courses at a recent press tasting. Some of the dishes were an elk tenderloin carpaccio with Peri Peri sauce, a rich lobster bisque with sherry and cream, beef short ribs with a cauliflower potato mash, Chilean seabass and oxtail, King salmon, and a ribeye filet.

Bistro 222 is open for lunch and dinner on the weekdays, dinner on Saturday, and brunch on Sunday. Parking is validated at the 222 parking garage (enter near the Hotel Monaco).
