With a backdrop of striking alpine views and rustic fireplaces, the menu at Glitretind — a Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restuarant — offers regional American cuisine, focusing on meat, fresh seafood and locally sourced ingredients. The restaurant’s menu of hearty fare changes completely twice a year.
The luxury Park City restaurant’s first courses include a variety of salads, soups and small plates such as Maine sea scallops served with white asparagus, watercrest, buttermilk whey and foie gras butter. Greens are dressed up with ingredients such as pickled blueberry, hazelnut relish, local goat cheese panna cotta and blueberry vinaigrette.
Main courses are mostly fish and meat dishes such as a Rocky Mountain elk tenderloin served with Tuscan kale, cranberry chutney and potato purée or Pacific black cod served with parsnip purée, fennel and citrus oil. You should always be able to find one vegetarian offering, too — we recently tried the pinot noir risotto with local feta cheese.
The Four-Star restaurant's dessert menu includes a selection of whimsical treats including s’mores (made with graham crackers semifreddo, house-made marshmallows, hot fudge and cinnamon-graham streusel) or an indulgent assortment of house-made chocolates. Try the flavored truffles if you get a chance — the pastry chef specializes in interesting combinations like strawberry pink peppercorn, sesame, passion fruit and sea salt.
Glitretind Restaurant’s menu is seasonal, featuring fresh local ingredients with both unique and familiar dishes.
