The latest and greatest press release from Canyons Resort. Looks like we’ve got a new restaurant in town kids …
Waldorf Astoria Park City, the first ski property from the iconic hotel brand, announces a new collection of amenities for the winter season. Located in picturesque Park City, Utah, at the base of Canyons Resort, the hotel unveils several new offerings, including: Slopes by Talisker, a new restaurant concept; Crave Café, located off the main lobby; Scoop, a poolside après ski option; and Palette, the new elegant lobby boutique.
Slated to open in December 2011, the new dining options and amenities will offer guests an additional level of world-class service at the luxurious Waldorf Astoria Park City, which opened in July 2009 and is also home to the renowned Golden Door Spa. Canyons Resort opens for the 2011/12 season on Friday, November 25 at 9:00 a.m.
Slopes by Talisker
Embracing the “living well” mantra envisioned by the hotel’s Golden Door Spa, Slopes by Talisker focuses on freshness, variety, quality, flavor, nutrition and balance. Slopes will emphasize locally sourced ingredients and showcase the best seasonal offerings. The restaurant will provide the high level of service and memorable dining experiences that are hallmarks of the Talisker Restaurant Collection, which includes Talisker on Main and The Farm. Bistro at Canyons, serving modern American kosher cuisine, will be the fourth member of the Talisker Restaurant Collection when it opens in December 2011.
Created by Chef John Murcko and led by Executive Chef Clement Gelas, the Slopes menu will feature a wide variety of dishes that are hearty and healthy with special care and attention to the dietary needs and preferences of guests including gluten free and vegan choices that are as delicious as they are healthy.
A casual menu will be offered in the lounge and a more extensive menu offered in the dining room. The restaurant will have 120 seats indoor and additional outdoor seasonal seating with views of the pool and scenic outdoor courtyard. Slopes will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Executive Chef Gelas was previously the Club Chef at Tuhaye Table Café, which is part of the Talisker Club real estate collection in Park City. Born and raised in Boege, France, Chef Gelas brings an international flair to Slopes from his experience working at La Maison de Marc Veyrat, which serves upscale mountain cuisine in the French Alps, and at L’Oxlays, a Michelin starred, fine-dining restaurant located in the mountains of Val Thorens in Savoy, France. He expresses his passion for cooking through local ingredients that he infuses with the culinary traditions of his home country.
Slopes by Talisker will also feature an extensive wine program created by Talisker’s Director of Wine & Spirits Sean Marron.
Perfect for grab-and-go on the way to the slopes or for enjoying in front of the fireplace, Crave will serve coffee, espresso, breakfast pastries, take-out lunch items, and house-made sweets and desserts. In addition, a selection of freshly prepared meals will be available for guests who would like to enjoy a meal in the privacy of their own suite. Located off the main lobby, Crave will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily.
Located poolside, Scoop features poolside specialty drinks, s’mores and gelato. Available for hotel guests and residents and an ideal après ski destination, the heated pool, whirlpools and outdoor fire pits are open year-round. Scoop will be open from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. daily in the winter.
