Park City's newest fine dining restaurant is the culmination of one chef's relentless exploration of food terroir. Young and ambitious, executive chef/owner Matt Harris learned to cook and rose to top chef in a few impressive culinary empires (Jean Georges Vongerichten, Kevin Rathbun, Pano Karatossos). He then embarked on a mission: visiting local producers across the country and around the globe: farmers to fisherfolk, ranchers to cheesemongers. He waded waters, tromped muddy fields, and wrestled with pigs like a true farmhand—all in pursuit of the very best the earth and oceans had to offer. His adventures formed the foundation for tupelo, and the rich, luminous stories underlying every dish.
The story behind your food can make a meal truly memorable. That’s the philosophy behind chef Matt Harris’ tupelo: a globally inspired fine dining restaurant that honors artisanal ingredients and food terroir. tupelo will open on Main Street in downtown Park City this winter season, featuring the ingredients of American producers in globally-inspired dishes. Fresh Idaho trout, natural Bear Lake lamb, heirloom Sea Island beans, and housemade ricotta are some highlights on a diverse menu with unexpected, delightful touches. From 48-hour braised veal cheek with parsnip puree, to crispy marble potatoes with indulgent bone marrow butter, every ingredient is carefully chosen to offer a tasty and enlightening experience for diners.
