Handle, on the corner of Swede Alley and Heber Avenue, serves small plates and entrées that are seasonally inspired and locally driven. Owner/Chef Briar Handly’s goal is to “give diner something familiar in an unexpected fashion,” such as Smoked Trout Sausage and sweet treats like Warm Caramel Pudding or Blueberry Tart with Sweet Marrow Powder. “The name ‘Handle’ is a play on my last name,” says Handly, “but I also want to emphasize crafting by hand, keeping food as simple and natural as possible.” Handle is open for dinner and Sunday brunch.
Chef Ryan Swarts, a veteran of Deer Valley’s Fireside Dining and Snow Park Lodge, together with Executive Chef Jodie Rodger, has opened The Brass Tag at the Lodges in Deer Valley. The name derives from Park City’s mining heritage—when miners headed into the shaft, they hung a brass tag on a hook. If a tag remained at the end of the shift, a search was initiated.
The Brass Tag serves Brick Oven Cuisine, but you won’t find lowly pizza on this menu. In classic Deer Valley style, guests enjoy inventive dishes like Tandoori Rubbed Quail, Brick Oven Shrimp Skillet and the House Cured Duck & Parma Proscuitto Flat Bread.
The Silver Star Café, a warm, rustic café featured on the Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” serves western influenced, home–style cooking using fresh natural foods. Continuing their commitment to healthy dining, owners Jeff and Lisa Ward eliminated products containing high-fructose corn syrup, replacing fountain sodas, condiments and other processed items with purer alternatives. “We are very selective about the integrity of our ingredients,” says Jeff, “and our kitchen is free of trans-fats, hydrogenated oils and now, HFCS.” Silver Star Café uses organic ketchup, old fashioned sodas and fruit juice infused carbonated waters. Its Park City Mountain Resort ski-in/ski-out location makes it an ideal place for lunch, dinner or après ski.
Fletcher’s, a new, casually upscale restaurant at 562 Main Street, invites guests to “Eat, Drink and Lounge.” The downstairs library, decorated with reclaimed wood, fireplaces and built-in bookshelves, is a great spot to enjoy signature cocktails and music. Chef Scott Boberek (formerly of Easy Street), serves American cuisine, using “familiar ingredients with a twist.” Small plates and entrées include Portobello Mushroom Carpaccio, grass- fed beef, Peanut Butter Salmon, and owner Steve Demerest’s favorite, Beef Wellington. For a special treat, reserve the Chef’s Table on the third floor.
DuMonde Gourmet is expanding, and fans of Chef Meryl van der Merwe’s healthy, gourmet cuisine will be excited to learn that in addition to her “Gourmet-to-Go or Platinum, Gold, Bronze catering and private chef options, they can also visit the new commercial kitchen and dining spot, Jaffiz™, located at 7182 Silver Creek Drive. “Jaffies are round, grilled sandwich pockets that originated in the 1950’s in South Africa,” says Chef Meryl. “Filled with globally inspired savory or sweet fillings, they’re a perfect way to introduce international cuisine like Hanoi’s Bahn Mi pulled pork or Babootie South African Lamb Curry.” She describes Jaffiz as a fast casual eatery with a retail area, a big communal table and counter stools where customers can come in for a quick bite.
