Skiers at Deer Valley Resort have a fantastic new place to refuel on the slopes this season. Matt and Maggie Harris, the owners of Tupelo, will open Rime, a new seafood restaurant and raw bar, on Dec. 13.
Perched at the top of the Jordanelle ski run and the Mountaineer Express Lift at Deer Valley Resort, Rime will be a ski-in/ski-out spot. The menu includes oysters, clam chowder, lobster rolls and more. It’s housed in the former Deer Crest Cabin, with stunning views of the Jordanelle. It will also be accessible via the Jordanelle Gondola for those on foot.
“We always wanted to open a location in Utah focusing on seafood,” said Maggie Harris, co-owner of Tupelo. “My husband and I lived and worked on Nantucket a few years, and we’ve made relationships with seafood purveyors in Maine and along the East Coast.”
They’ll fly in fresh seafood daily, which goes from the boat to the restaurant within 48 hours. In addition, they will only serve seafood that’s ethically fished from trusted sources, honoring their commitment to the environment.
Rime will host a happy hour raw bar from 2-3 p.m., and the menu includes a chopped salad, chopped ahi tartare, lobster roll, french dip, shrimp cocktail and a daily taco special. On bluebird days, Rime will bring the grill outside and serve “sunny day specials” like burgers and other expanded menu options.
They also have a variety of beers and wines by the glass and by the bottle — making it an ideal place to aprés. Rime will host a grand opening on Dec. 13, and then will be open from Thursday-Sunday, 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
