For the last two years, I swore I would get up to Park City for Savor the Summit and things got in the way. This year, it was a necessity. Cool Park City air, the finest restaurants, and sharing the experience with 2000 others along a nearly mile-long row of tables. What’s not to love?

As great as Savor the Summit sounds, it’s even better in person. As the restaurants are setting up the massive grand table, there’s live music and a spirits garden to grab a drink. It’s a perfect evening to walk along Main Street to visit the art galleries and shops, and see each restaurant decoration theme. From western themed picnic tables, garden awnings, and beautiful posh lounges, each setting established a great mood for the dining experience to come.

I had the pleasure to dine at Easy Street, the luxurious steak and seafood grill at The Sky Lodge hotel. This was no basic dinner. The first course was a selection of “petite bruschettas and crostinis” which included a smoked salmon topped with pickled red onion and fried quail egg. Each was incredible, rich, and diverse in flavor. Next up, a grilled octopus salad with a sweet chili glaze. As someone who’s not always a fan of octopus, I was quite pleased with the perfectly cooked dish. The next course was a nice palate cleansing watermelon salad with arugula, goat cheese, and tarragon vinaigrette. The main course was rotisserie buffalo tri-tip with grilled potato, braised rainbow chard, and topped with a huckleberry demi-glace. I could have eaten that 100 more times.

 

Finally, dessert. White chocolate cheesecake with strawberries, and Remy Martin V.S.O.P. Wow! I know that’s not a technical term, but it was delicious. Absolutely heavenly. It was a perfect end to the evening, the atmosphere, the new friends, and a wonderful night in Park City. For anyone with concerns over dietary restrictions, don’t let that stop you from enjoying this event. Just let the restaurant know when you make your reservation. The chef at Easy Street prepared special dishes for one of the nearby diners, as she let them know she was gluten-intolerant. They really do work hard to make this is a great event.

Savor the Summit is an event you should not miss. Of all the dining events throughout Utah, this is the top. Plan ahead for next June. Menus range from $50-250, wine pairings available at most restaurants. It’s worth every cent for the food and experience. I’ll keep you posted when restaurants begin taking reservations for the event.
