Located at the Stein Eriksen Lodge, a Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel in Utah’s upscale Deer Valley resort, Glitretind Restaurant serves regional American cuisine in a mountain-view dining room. Before you make your reservation, here are five things to know about the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant:
1. The name might be hard to pronounce. Glitretind is Norwegian for “shimmering mountain.” The name is fitting — the dining room looks out on the snowy mountain in Utah’s Wasatch range.
2. Ask to sit near a window. You can watch skiers make their way down the slopes in the winter, and in the summer the patio lets you take in the fresh mountain air.
3. The dress code is casual. Though the luxury Park City restaurant is known for its upscale menu featuring local ingredients, things feel casual and unpretentious in the dining room. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the restaurant hosts skiers taking a break during the day, but things are a touch more formal come dinnertime.
4. Gluten-free? No problem. The staff at Glitretind is well versed on allergies, and can make recommendations and adjustments based on your restrictions. The restaurant also serves gluten-free bread.
5. The crowd varies. You probably won’t need a dinner reservation during the summer, but be sure to make one during the winter ski season. The restaurant is popular with families and couples staying at Stein Eriksen, as well as residents of Park City and nearby Salt Lake City.
Glitretind Restaurant has the best burger in the world, a Sunday Brunch you’ll never forget, one-of-a-kind wild game chili, refined elegant dining with a casual approach, and amazing Utah-local products.
