Food News: Port & Chocolate Tasting

Also: New menu at The New Yorker; Park City enters Shoulder Season


On Tuesday, Oct. 21, local chocolatiers will team up with Taylor Fladgate port producers for a unique Port & Chocolate Tasting: a winning combination! The event will take place at Texas de Brazil Churrascaria from 6:30 to 8 p.m., beginning with passed hors d’oeuvres, and followed by a four-course pairing of premium ports, delectable chocolates and imported cheeses, with chocolate makers and representatives from Taylor Fladgate leading the pairings and educating guests. The ports being poured will be Fonseca BIN 27 Ruby Porto, Taylor Fladgate Late Bottled Vintage Porto, Taylor Fladgate 10 Year Old Tawny Porto, and Taylor Fladgate 20 Year Old Tawny Porto. Space is limited and attendees must be 21 or older. The cost is $30 per person and tickets can be purchased at Eventbrite.

The venerable New Yorker restaurant has launched new fall/winter lunch and dinner menus that range from comfort foods such as a grilled-cheese sandwich with tomato soup to roasted Rocky Mountain rack of lamb. Other new menu items include ahi tuna-avocado tartare; sweet corn-crab bisque; coconut-panko crab cake; wild-caught Alaska salmon and Alaskan halibut; petit filet mignon with fried oysters; shellfish Cobb Royale; Asian shrimp salad; New York steak salad, and more. The New Yorker also offers a full wine list and specialty cocktails like the Car Wash, The Big ‘O’ Martini, the Daisy Buchanan, the Slum Dog Millionare, and signature New Yorker Espresso Martini.

The Park City Area Restaurant Association wants to remind diners that many Park City restaurants either close completely or adjust their hours during the fall through mid-November, when the ski season starts to ramp up.
