Raising the Bar

Let’s face it: There’s bar food, and then there’s bar food. And, I am certainly not above munching on Buffalo chicken wings in a smoky bar, although smoky bars are becoming an increasingly endangered species. I’ve eaten corned beef and cabbage from steam tables in New York City dives and had ploughman’s lunches in British pubs. I’ve enjoyed tapas in Spanish bars and antojitos in Mexican ones. I’m not a bar-food snob.

However, a bar menu featuring the delights of chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, well, now that’s another story. And, stellar bartenders like Drew Congino are hard to find. So, belly up to Deer Valley’s gorgeously appointed St. Regis Bar, replete with a triptych of oldtime Park City mining scenes by artist Philip Buller, get cozy on a couch by the fireplace, or lounge out at the St. Regis ski beach and its warming “garden of fire.”

Wherever you wind up, you’ll want to try a St. Regis signature cocktail such as the “7452 Mary,” named for the resort’s altitude, which is a sassy blend of fine oatdistilled Vodka 7000 from Park City’s own High West Distillery, rimmed with locally produced Real Salt and garnished with wasabi-celery foam. Another exotic option for sipping is the addictive ginger margarita. And, of course, some 4,600 bottles of wine are at your disposal thanks to the St. Regis Wine Vault, which sits conveniently adjacent to the St. Regis Bar.

An upscale selection of cheeses and charcuterie counts as “bar food” at the St. Regis, and it’s terrific. But the best deal is the $12 iron pot of plump, steamed Maine mussels mariniere—about three dozen of them, served with crispy slices of rustic grilled bread to soak up every bit of the silky, buttery broth. And, what other bar around here serves black truffle pizza? CW
