Raise your hand if you have a sweet tooth!! Too often, we fill up on appetizers and desserts, neglecting the grand finale that could and should complete our dining experiences. Desserts come in many forms, but today we should all acknowledge just how much time and attention goes into really special desserts. Dessert lovers — today is your day, so dive into these divine desserts adorning menus around Park City.
Buona Vita: classic Italian
Tiramisu is a classic, coffee-flavored Italian dessert. Find it on the dessert menu at Buona Vita. If you love coffee for its taste, in addition to the caffeine boost, then this dessert is a great way to finish a fall day with those flavors. The delicate confection is a great finish to an inspired Italian dinner at Buona Vita.
Butcher’s Chophouse: sweet cinnamon
There’s a lot going on in Butchers’ cinnamon Chimichanga. A deep-fried tortilla is filled with banana cheesecake, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and topped with warm caramel topping. And yet, somehow, it all works in a delightful combination of flavors and textures. Even chocolate lovers might be tempted to step outside their comfort zone to get a bite of this!!
Glitretind: deconstructed German chocolate cake
Say the word cake, and delicate dessert consumers may immediately shy away, expecting a slice of something rich and chocolatey (not that there’s anything wrong with that!). However, we were intrigued by Glitretind’s reinvention of classic German chocolate cake. With a little stretch of the imagination, you can see a whisper of the classic version in a dessert that is every bit as elegant as its location in Stein Ericksen Lodge. Imaginative and inventive, this dessert is composed of coconut dacquoise, almond gel, milk chocolate pecan chantilly and cocoa cake.
J&G Grill: light and flavorful
Speaking of inventive ingredients, J&G Grill, located in The St. Regis Deer Valley, is a pro at dreaming up unique creations. Their dessert menu demonstrates this talent from start to finish. We promise you, they’re all so good, you’ll be hard-pressed to pick just one. From coconut pavlova to key lime cheesecake, there are flavors and textures present in these desserts that will speak loudly to your sweet tooth. But on the tail end of the summer season, we’re opting for their buttermilk shortcake. Rich with flavor, while still feeling light overall, the shortcake is topped with mascarpone mousse, lavender syrup and macerated strawberries.
350 Main: vegan and gluten-free desserts
Too often, desserts are stuffed with dairy and flour products that aren’t inclined toward those with food restrictions. If you’re looking for a dessert that’s both vegan and gluten-free, the Madeleines at 350 Main are the ticket. Not only are they baked fresh every day, but they come with a trio of dipping sauces and come in seasonal flavors. Last fall, we fell in love with their pumpkin spice variety–fingers crossed they’ll be back this year!
