J&G Grill Park City

Modern mountainside dining in Park City
VERIFIED LUXURY
Tucked inside The St. Regis Deer Valley, the J&G Grill replicates the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel’s same luxurious mountain-lodge aesthetic. Gray quartz stone walls lend a rustic feel, and rings of big globe lights hanging from above add a simple but sophisticated touch.

In the morning, skiers donning bright jackets with matching pants and ski boots swarm star chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s J&G Grill and excitedly chatter about hitting the slopes over Gruyère omelets.

But at night, the space seamlessly transforms into a warm, sedate dining destination where those same skiers return — this time in casual-chic attire — for plates of tender braised short rib with jalapeño-apple puree and rosemary crumbs.

Our Inspector's Highlights
• Foodies may want to opt for one of the bar seats lining the exhibition kitchen to watch the chefs in action (plus, if you sit here, you’ll likely get extra treats).

• A large two-sided wood-burning stone fireplace makes you want to cozy up with one of the restaurant’s indulgent boozy hot chocolates.

• And of course, you can see the inspiration for the décor outside of the oversized widows; they look out over the snow-covered mountains and aspen trees.

• The contemporary American menu is a greatest-hits compilation of the prolific chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. For the most part, the fish and other meats are all sourced from within 80 miles of the restaurant.

• An incentive to dine here outside of ski season is Summer Sundays, when you can have dinner on the Mountain Terrace and take in the scenery and live music. Each week, you’ll find a barbecue buffet that typically includes spit-roasted pig, lamb, Kobe beef and ribs; an array of sides; and a number of desserts.
Things to Know
• Be sure to order Vongerichten’s signature warm chocolate cake. He lays claim to inventing the molten cake — which gushes a chocolate-pudding-like lava when you cut into it — in the ’80s, and it’s since become ubiquitous on menus all over the world.

• The Deer Valley restaurant is serves up breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week. Enjoy your morning meal pre-ski from 7 until 11 a.m., lunch is offered from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and indulge in contemporary American fare each evening from 5:30 until 9 p.m.

• Breakfast is a more casual affair, with skiers preparing for a day out on the slopes, but come dinnertime, be sure to dress it up a little to match the smart casual ambiance of the Deer Valley restaurant.
The Food
• One of the most popular dishes is the tuna tartare with avocado, spicy radish and soy-ginger dressing. The starter is made with ahi that’s caught and flown in the same day from Honolulu Fish Company.

• We also love the mussels marinière appetizer. They are topped with a lemon wedge and thick triangles of grilled toast that’s perfect for sopping up every last drop of the fragrant white wine, garlic and Thai basil sauce.

• Among the entrées, try carefully plated dishes such as trout almandine with fresh catch that’s plucked from the nearby Snake River in Idaho or the pork chop from Utah’s Paisley Farms that’s finished with a smoked chili glaze.

• When you need to refuel after an intense morning on the slopes, the lunch menu offers a pecorino-goat-cheese pizza topped with prosciutto, pears and pistachios; a crispy halibut sandwich with black olive tartar sauce and house-made pickles; and a grilled hanger steak frites.

• If you adored the short rib at dinner, have it in a hash with sunny side-up eggs during breakfast. Or choose lighter fare like an egg white frittata with zucchini and basil or house-made yogurt studded with berries and granola.
The Drinks
• Although J&G carries a substantial wine list, you’ll want to be sure to try one of the Park City restaurant’s signature cocktails.

• Don’t leave the Deer Valley restaurant without trying its 7452 Mary. This one-of-a-kind Bloody Mary features oat-distilled Vodka 7000’ from local High West Distillery, a foamy wasabi and celery espuma (celery and green apple juices, lime, wasabi powder, salt, Xantana) and a sprinkle of cayenne pepper.

• When it’s cold out, the Winter’s Dream is a must. Rich housemade hot chocolate gets a grown-up makeover with the addition of Baileys, amaretto and nutmeg (don’t worry — there’s still loads of whipped cream on top).

• While the cocktails steal the spotlight, the alcohol-free drinks are just as creative here. Peruse the housemade sodas for fun flavors like cherry yuzu, passion chili, sour orange and spiced cranberry.
