Discover Deer Valley Dining
Catering for one of the premium level ski resorts in the Wasatch region, Deer Valley restaurants are renowned for their quality. This is true of both service and food, as they cater for a more discerning palette, used to the delights of fine dining, and exclusivity. Such an approach settles well with the upmarket focus of the resort, offering such luxury service as ski valets and shopping boutiques.
Within the resort itself, there is a selection of three fine dining restaurants to choose from. The most respected of these is the Mariposa, which has won several top awards, and is often named as one of the best restaurants to visit in the skiing world. Only open throughout the ski season, patrons are able to enjoy both contemporary and classical dishes. Also offered are signature tasting menus, allowing the kitchen team to showcase all that is best about them. With attentive staff, exuding comprehensive knowledge about the food and its provenance, you are assured a memorable experience.
No fine dining collection would be complete without a seafood representative in the stable. And Deer Valley resorts Seafood Buffet delivers here. With a focus on presenting diners with only the best quality food available, they are committed to sourcing sustainable stocks wherever possible. Offering a more relaxed atmosphere than some fine dining restaurants afford, guests from the local area vote this as one of their favorite restaurants.
Ending the list with a flourish is the Fireside Dining restaurant, that delivers Alpine charm, and introduces a novel concept to dining that is fun. Diners are invited to explore the delights on offer, with a tour around four fireplaces. The first offers tempting appetizers including homemade breads, cheeses and chutneys. The second and third fireplaces, present Swiss inspired main courses, with succulent meat dishes, game, poultry and authentic vegetarian options. At the final fireplace, you are invited to select from a tempting range of desserts to finish the meal and partake in the bar offerings.
Whilst the restaurants within the resort are popular, and worthy of attention, it is wise not to ignore other restaurants in the surrounding area.
First amongst these is the amazingly popular Goldener Hirsch Inn. The winner of many awards, and often booked up for extended periods of time, diners will receive service that is parallel to that offered in the resort.
Other Deer Valley restaurants to consider if vacationing in the area include The Glitretind, and the Stew Pot. The Gliterand provides an exceptional regional experience, whilst the Stew Pot provides a homely, more traditional approach. Again, these restaurants are open year round, and are worth visiting during the summer, to take in the breathtaking views.
If you are lucky enough to be vacationing in Deer Valley this ski season, you are sure to not be disappointed, with high quality restaurants at every turn. However, be sure to check out those restaurants away from the resort, particularly if you intend visiting throughout the summer.
