Seasoned New Wild Grape Chef
The Wild Grape New West Bistro (481 E. South Temple, 801-746-5565, WildGrapeBistro.com) has announced the appointment of a new executive chef, David Bear Stromness. "We are very excited about Dave's passion and we are looking forward to seeing him progress and settle in," says Wild Grape owner Troy Greenhawt. "He's already turning heads." Stromness boasts a 20-year career, complete with stops in Hawaii, New York, Oregon and California. Most recently, he served as sous chef at the late, great Metropolitan restaurant in Salt Lake City.

Lunch with Hearth
Hearth on 25th (195 25th St., Ogden, 801-399-0088, Hearth25.com) is now open for extended-lunch lovers from noon to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Menu items range from hearth-baked pizzas and pastas to salads, sandwiches, burgers and entree-size dishes such as Utah Berkshire pork two ways, fresh dayboat wild Alaskan halibut, elk sirloin and even grass-fed Himalayan yak tartare. No, I didn't make that last one up. Also until 5 p.m. daily, Hearth's small-plates "Nosh" menu offers half-price noshes—as long as you buy one at the regular price. Noshes include wood-oven-roasted bone marrow, fried green tomatoes, truffle frites, pork rillettes, coconut curry popcorn and more.

Brick & Brass
Deer Valley Resort has opened a new casual comfort-food restaurant called The Brass Tag. It's located in The Lodges at Deer Valley (2900 Deer Valley Drive, DeerValley.com) and will serve dinner, complete with a full bar, nightly year-round. Longtime Executive Chef Jodie Rogers will oversee the restaurant, assisted by immensely talented sous chef Ryan Swarts. The Brass Tag features brick-oven cuisine, including cheddar-truffle-chive spätzle, flatbread with house-cured duck and prosciutto, oven-fired chimichurri chips, tandoori-rubbed quail, wood-oven shrimp skillets and much more. Where did the name come from? Brass tags were hung on boards by Park City miners to indicate when they were in or out of a mine. If a brass tag remained unclaimed at the end of a mining shift, a search for the missing miner was launched.
