An Evening at The Canyons

Saturday, April 23rd, 2011

Part of what we love about life at Soirée Productions is the fabulous venues that we are surrounded by. We’ve become almost spoiled with amazing resorts that feature stunning views, the best snow you could ever ask for, and some of the most luxurious spas that we’ve ever experienced.  Beyond that, the resorts in Park City are home to mouthwatering and exquisite restaurants. When it comes to food, us ladies at Soirée Productions definitely have our preferences.

Just recently, we were invited by Brooke Hafets, Romance Director of  The Canyons, to experience the great dining that The Canyons has to offer. Of course, we joined her for an evening of cuisine delight.

The Canyons has a number of great places to grab a bite to eat, but we wanted to focus on choices that we could share with our fabulous clients and their guests. Brooke chose three of the 14+ restaurant choices at The Canyons to share with us.

We began our tour at  The Alpine House. This choice is perfect for a more intimate group. We loved it because it was cozy and at the same time sophisticated and eclectic. The menu is great, served along side a fabulous bar. All of the cuisine is cooked on a wood fired brick oven. We chose to have just a snack, of delicious cheeses, fruit and sliced meat. We wish we could have stayed for our entire dinner, and the ambiance would be perfect for that. The Alpine House is perfect for a reception style event, rehearsal dinner, or other less formal event.

Next, we moved onto Red Tail Grill. Brooke suggested the Sangria, which I believe is one of my new favorites, by far. She also suggested that we try the Buffalo Short Rib Nachos. Of course, we ordered Brooke’s suggestion, and we will never regret it. The Buffalo Short Rib Nachos were everything you dream they would be: tender, juicy and the perfect salsa to top it off. Simply nacho perfection. Brooke also suggested that we try the Crab Tostada, the Southwestern Cheeseburger, and the Grilled Steak Salad. We knew we had to save enough room for the next food stop, we will definitely try those the next visit…

Last on the list for the evening, but certainly not the least, was the new addition to The Canyons, The Farm. This new space recognizes Chef Murcko and is committed to local flavors as well as sustainable food. With a completely elegant presentation, and unique menu choices, The Canyons caters to a personal choice and belief of many by offering a restaurant with a commitment such as The Farm.

The wine list is impeccable, and the Sommelier even brought in an incredible red blend that he personally drinks at home(it was divine, by the way).  The décor and the staff of The Farm provide for a relaxing dining experience in a modern space with a fine feel to every moment of your experience.

After a fabulous dinner at The Farm, and finish to our evening of taste, we decided that The Farm is a great place for a  slightly more formal dinner party, and that the separation of the well-endowed bar and the dining area provides for plentiful space for a larger amount of guests.

While waiting for our car at valet, we could not stop talking about how excited we were about our experience. Brooke provided the excellent host, and The Canyons provided fabulous dining. We are excited to share our evening with you, and hope that you are inspired to experience dining at The Canyons for yourself.

The Canyons Resort in Park City, Utah

The Canyons Resort in Park City, Utah

This has been a busy weekend.  The holidays keep us busy shopping and party planning but on Friday we were hosted by the Canyons Resort to enjoy A Taste of the Canyons.  What a fun night.  Party planners, former clients and their families were all invited to celebrate the holidays.  The event began on Friday evening with dinner in the Grand Summit ballroom where we were introduced to the many restaurants and wonderful chefs available for all of our party planning needs.  We dined on pork tenderloin prepared by the catering chefs, enjoyed couscous, stuffed chicken and ravioli’s to order by the Cabin Restaurant, cheese from around the world from the amazing Viking Yurt Restaurant.  Everyone needs to know about the Viking Yurt.  This amazing place sits on top of the mountain and can accommodate up to 32 guests for a fine dining experience.  There was so much food I could hardly stand after enjoying it all!  The big surprise was when Santa arrived with his bag of gifts for everyone.  The kids were impressed to see him arrive and couldn’t wait to visit with him.  After a quick visit and photos with Santa the kids were entertained with a giant screen where they played Wii for the remainder of the night while the adult guests danced and enjoyed the music provided by the Mark Chaney band.  I had to take a second look when I heard “Hey Jude”!  They made sure everyone was dancing and having a good time.

We finally called it a night and spent the night in a one bedroom suite at the beautiful Grand Summit Hotel.  Our room slept 6!  We had a full kitchen, 2 bathrooms, a king size bed, three twins and a queen bed.  What a great getaway.  This is a great hotel offering plenty of activities, The Village Shops, and a variety of restaurants.  The accommodations are amazing and offer affordable rates for everyone during the summer or winter.  Two of our favorite venues at the Canyons include the beautiful ballroom at the Grand Summit Hotel.  There ballroom is one of the largest in Park City and can accommodate up to 350 for a seated dinner.   The unique Red Pine Lodge at mid-mountain offers a beautiful atmosphere for dinner and dancing and a secluded ceremony site overlooking the mountainside.  The best part about Red Pine Lodge is getting there.  You and your guests are treated to a ride on the gondola – a short 13 minute ride up!

On Saturday morning we enjoyed one of the best breakfast buffets in town.  We dined at the Cabin Restaurant with Omlete’s made to order, hot cakes, sausage, country potatoes, and to top it off an espresso.  We must have gained 10 pounds in two days!  The day ended with a trip to the Grand Spa where we relaxed and were spoiled with two treatments.  We enjoyed a one hour massage and a one hour facial.  The spa offers a variety of treatments, 8 treatment rooms, an olympic size swimming pool, hot tubs, sauna, steam room and a piece of heaven.  I was so relaxed after this wonderful weekend I am ready for the holidays!  The Canyons Resort offers so many different venues for weddings, rehearsal dinners, bridal spa days & luncheons you want to be sure to check it out.  We learned so much about the resort this weekend we invite you to call us and we’ll share all of the information with you or visit their website.  Thank you to the entire staff at the Canyons Resort for a great weekend and for including our families.  It was a great get-away!  Happy holidays.
