Skiing up at Snowbasin Resort yesterday, I enjoyed a lengthy lunch at the all-new Huntington Bistro, located in Snowbasin's Earl's Lodge. It's open for lunch, offering an eclectic array of interesting dishes. A natural starter is the killer bleu cheese fondue, which comes with thick, homemade potato chips. Then, an appetizer of duck confit-stuffed warm chive crepe with micro greens and lime creme fresh is large enough (and delicious enough) to serve as an entree.
The all-natural 1/2 pound bison burger at Hungtington Bistro comes with Fontina cheese, sauteed wild mushrooms and French fries. And, an outstanding and greatly satisfying cold-weather dish is the "tartiflette." It's chunks of Yukon gold potatoes bathed in thin-sliced caramelized onions, thick-cut bacon lardons, and a crunchy Reblochon cheese crust. It was terrific with a glass of Louis Latour red Burgundy.
According to Snowbasin's Food & Beverage Manager, Christian Peyrin, "Huntington Bistro combines the talents of our Chefs with the service Snowbasin is known for: to provide guests with culinary savoir-faire." Can't argue with that!
