Wasatch Mountain Table Outdoor View

Richey’s experience in Utah includes time as executive chef at Pago, sous chef at the Treeroom (Sundance), sous chef at The Aerie (Snowbird) and sous chef at the Globe restaurant. Couple that experience with a focus on highlighting local producers such as M & M Farms and Beehive Cheese, not to mention wines from Ruth Lewandowski Wines, and you’ve got a dinner series as delicious as it promises to be beautiful.

June 29th, 2013

July 13th, 2013

August 3rd, 2013

During the series, local farmers and ranchers often pop by, and meals include an appetizer reception followed by a four course dinner (with optional wine pairings) at a communal “Mountain Table” alongside Big Cottonwood Creek. Dinners are priced at $75 per person or $110 per person with wine pairing. Reservations are recommended, (801) 536-5722.
