Zoom and Chef Ernesto Rocha
Chef Ernesto Rocha is a Park City legend. Since 1991, he’s led the kitchens of some of the area’s finest restaurants. Many customers who know him by name have since become loyal fans and have followed Ernesto throughout his career. They do this for one reason: his food is worth it. Zoom restaurant on Historic Main Street is proud to announce that Rocha has found his home by joining their company; two superstars of the Park City dining scene have paired up and are making culinary history.
Chef Rocha is still water that runs deep. He has followed his passion and fascination with world cuisines and melded them into a style of culinary art all his own. Rocha is renowned for Zoom’s exquisite entrees; the white balsamic sorbet dressing shaved over the baby arugula and heirloom tomato salad is so distinctive you know it comes from a master’s hands. Talk to your server about anything on Zoom’s menu and you’ll find that Rocha’s intensity infuses every item with flavors, textures, and presentation unlike anything you’ve seen or tasted before.
“I grew up in a family where meals were our daily expression of our love for each other. The flavors ranged from intense to mild, just like all the different facets of our relationships, but combined they were balanced and lovely,” said Rocha. “It’s important to me that Zoom’s clients have this same experience when they join us for a meal.” Rocha’s background and expert training is
perfectly blended in dishes like Zoom’s Duck Confit Chili Relleno. Succulent, rich duck is tucked alongside young cheese into a freshly roasted poblano chili, sautéed until perfectly crisp on
the outside and topped with fresh avocado, mango and a dash of pico de gallo. Paris meets Puebla in one delicious mouthful after another. Another must-try is the Buffalo Sliders appetizer.
Rocha grills mini-buffalo burgers to a perfect medium-rare, slides them into fresh Kaiser rolls then crowns them with his signature orange-chipotle barbeque sauce and apple slaw. The crunchy slaw combines with the tangy sauce to bring out the earthy fullness of the buffalo—spectacular!
While Chef Ernesto Rocha’s cuisine talents are obvious, what makes an evening at Zoom wonderful is the entire team. Everyone, from the hostess to the servers to the kitchen staff, exudes the warm and welcoming atmosphere that has made the Sundance family of restaurants favorites among locals and visitors alike. It’s impossible to eat a meal at Zoom and not leave more happy and relaxed. The union is a good one and is sure to bring pleasure to all who are in their company.
