When people come to Park City for Sundance, they usual research on the films or parties, but I prefer to study up on the restaurants and Glitretind was #2 on my list. The restaurant is in the very expensive Stein Eriksen Lodge (lots of celebrities stay here for Sundance because it's away from Main Street), which means..the bill will make a nice dent on your plastic.
After a 7 day cleanse, I opted for the $34 lunch buffet; it was cheap compared to my friend's $22 Chicken Pot Pie that was boring (Swanson's Chicken Pot Pie tastes better)...
See...the $34 lunch buffet made sense. Their buffet was outstanding!
They offered (2) soups: 1) Game and 2) butternut squash bisque.
My colleague got the Game soup, which was too gamey for me. The butternut squash bisque was heaven! They had a nice selection of pastas, salads, cheese etc: I discovered a new cheese I love: New Amsterdam! They also had a seafood section, which I avoided (allergies). The special of the day was make your own Mahi Mahi tacos. I got the Ancho chili rubbed strip loin instead and it was delicious!! I should have skipped the Grilled Swordfish. The Yukon Gold Potato Puree was to die for!
My plate #1:
My plate #2:
Oh, we also ordered the $11.00 Garlic "Fries," which were not bad but for $11, you can skip it.
Back to the lunch buffet...to the best part...the desserts.
They had one long table dedicated to desserts!!!
Errr....so I tried:
the Cheesecake (meh) & the Chocolate Banana Tart (good)
the Strawberry Mousse (meh)
the Fruit Tart (meh, had a coconut flavored crust? I don't like coconut) & the Chocolate Decadent (OMG! YES, this chocolate cake is better than sex!)
My colleague ordered an $18 burger; he seemed to enjoy it.
My double latte (very strong!) was served in a tiny, cute cup. It costs $9!! Um, yeah..Starbucks latte sounds pretty cheap....
The damage...10 lbs...
Our lunch came out to $200 for 4 people including tip. Excellent service. Valet parking is $10.
If the meal is on someone's dime...Glitretind is a must!
