Park City Plated @ Escala
In August the Park City Area Restaurant Association (PCARA) introduced a new initiative, Park City Plated. Each month the program features a different Park City area restaurant offering a special dinner and menu which is value-priced. “Park City Plated is a brand-new way for guests to sample our community’s diverse dining scene,” said PCARA executive director Ginger Wicks.
On Thursday, November 7th, Escala Provisions Company Restaurant & Bar in the Hyatt Centric Park City will be the scene of this month’s Park City Plated event. Chef David Schuler will present a special 4-course menu of dishes paired with locally crafted beers from Epic Brewing Company. The event is limited to 20 people and will begin at 5 pm. The cost is $50 for the 4-course menu and $20 for the (optional) beer pairings. Phone 435-615-4229 for reservations.
Chef Geraldine Returns to Ogden
For many years following the departure of Zucca Trattoria founding chef Elio Scanu, Chef Geraldine Sepulveda headed up the kitchen there. In 2017, she left to open Stellas American & Italian Bistro in Syracuse, Utah. Well, fans of Geraldine will be happy to know that she’s returning to Ogden to open her new restaurant on Historic 25th Street. It’s called, not surprisingly, Stellas on 25th.
Look for pasta classics such as linguini alle vongole, frutti di mare, and tagliatelle Bolognese on the new menu, along with Italian favorites like cioppino, chicken Marsala, risotto, meatballs al forno, artisan flatbreads, salads, soups, and homemade desserts. For reservations, call 385-206-8188.
