I spent some time this past weekend taking in the opulence of Montage, the new luxury retreat at Deer Valley's Empire Canyon. Wow. So far, my food and drink experiences at Montage have been flawless. And, a nice surprise: I'd expected prices at Montage's high-end restaurant, Apex, to be astronomical. They weren't. In fact, the pricing was in line with most Park City restaurants, and even less expensive than some.
Daly's at Montage is a gastropub and recreation area with flat screen TVs, free Wii games, three bowling lanes, pool, video games (old school and new) and more. It's a great place for kids and adults, alike.
The service at both Daly's and Apex was exceptional, from bussers keeping water glasses filled to excellent wine and table service. Frankly, I was surprised that a place this new could be so completely in sync already.
Here's are some dishes we enjoyed at Daly's:
Altlantic cod fish & fries.
Chicken pot pie.
Cheese fondue with homemade pretzels.
From Apex, Montage's signature restaurant:
The "bread" served with dinner is yummy cheese bread -- a big, airy, cheesy gougere, really.
Poulet rouge with homade herbed spaetzle.
I'll be doing a full review of Montage dining soon. Stay tuned.
