Their master-planned communities with ads that feature glamorous fur-clad models frolicking in the snow that’s strictly members only have been lifestyle eye candy for Parkites (Park City residents) . Now the Talisker brand brings their high-concept lifestyle to the public with a Main Street eatery in Park City that’s immediately one of the best in town. Housed in a historic storefront, now monogrammed with Talisker logo and pristine striped awning, a long dining room of checkerboard floors sits under a pounded-tin ceiling amongst glossy white plaster columns and walls dotted with black-and-white photos of glamorous skiers and some of Talisker’s prettier residents. Off the main room with its marble-trimmed open kitchen, a wood-paneled private dining area and parlor-style lounge offer post-dinner cordials and great option for private dining.
It’s no secret that some of the best cuisine in Park City has been inconveniently off-limits but for residents of Talisker communities. Led by chef John Murcko, an American brasserie menu of mountain flavors is offered as a 4-course chef’s tasting or ala carte menu. Appetizers of lobster hush-puppies with sweet pepper salad and Elk tenderloin carpaccio with slow-poached egg are intricate, edible stories. Dishes like roasted brussels sprouts with hazelnut and pancetta or smoked mountain trout are also ideal as sides. Main course includes veggie-option of couscous-stuffed squash, lamb loin with tart cherry and short-rib shepherd’s pie with potato brulee.
Fashionable Main Street eatery owned by Talisker dazzles the eye and satiates the palette with hearty, locally sourced American specialties.
