Hearth and Hill opened in Park City as a result of a lifelong dream of owner Brooks Kirchheimer. Kirchheimer got his degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management from the University of Denver. He subsequently managed several popular restaurants, including a former Park City establishment called Zoom. Executive chef David Rosenberger is the secret ingredient that infuses every dish served at Hearth and Hill. He has worked at a succession of prominent eateries, but by far, Hearth and Hill is the one closest to his own views about the way food should be served.
The restaurant is available for large groups and events. Hearth and Hill can host groups of between two people and 200 people, for a cocktail reception event, breakfast, lunch or dinner.
They have a private dining room that can be booked for groups of up to 36 people. Your group will have privacy as well as access to audio-video equipment. If you want to buy out Hearth and Hill and have the whole place to yourselves with your group, that’s possible, too. Just contact the restaurant with details. They also provide catering services for weddings, meetings and other special events in and around Park City.
Location & Environment
Hearth and Hill is located on Center Drive in Park City, in the Newpark Town Center. Plenty of free street parking is available on this quiet center road in downtown Park City. If you’re getting take-out, it’s super easy to just pull up, run in and grab your food. They don’t currently offer curb-side service, however.
The environment where the restaurant is located is a very pleasant and quiet street. It’s highly walkable, so you can stroll along and window shop while you await your reservation or stroll along after enjoying a meal.
The restaurant is kid and family-friendly, with plenty of kid-appealing items on the menu to keep them happy. Reservations are highly suggested. Considering the popularity of Hearth and Hill, it’s not likely you’ll be seated during the dinner hour without one. Incidentally, they’re open from Monday through Saturday, from 11:30 AM to 9 PM and on Sunday from 10AM to 9PM. Bookings can be made online or by calling the restaurant directly.
The interior atmosphere isn’t cozy, but when it fills up (and it does that a lot), the ambience changes and it does feel more personable! There are several four-top tables in a separate area that also has its own fireplace for those freezing cold Utah days and nights. A veritable wall of wines and champagnes takes up one whole side of one part of the restaurant, but don’t worry; there’s plenty of seating capacity. On balmy days and starry nights, guests can be seated on the outdoor deck, where ceiling fans and decorative lights hang from a wooden pergola. The patio looks out over Center Drive, making it the ideal spot to people watch. Window boxes line the fenced-in patio, so you don’t feel like you’re just sitting on the sidewalk. The waitstaff is super friendly and down-to-earth, so even though you’re getting gourmet food, you will never feel out of place or unappreciated.
An Ever-Changing Menu
The menu at Hearth and Hill is eclectic, to say the least. It does change frequently, because the chef tries to source locally whenever possible.
For lunch, diners can enjoy an assortment of shareable dishes like their Park City Cremery brie, fashioned with kumquat, fennel, tomato, goji berry jam and peasant bread. Another shareable lunch dish is the new take on mac and cheese, a Truffle mac and cheese, made with gruyere, bread crumbs, bacon and chives. If you’re just in the mood to snack, try the dill-seasoned fries with chive cream or the mushroom pate, made with umeboshi plum gelee, pickled mustard seed and crostini.
Dinner, which is available from 4PM on, includes offerings such as ratatouille, bison burger, and Pacifico striped bass. The striped bass is special and only available at certain times. But if you can get it, you’ll enjoy the summer squash, carrot, miso broth and pickled peanut germolata that it’s served with. They have a daily soup choice, and a “spoonable” ramen, consisting of pulled pork, scallion, soft egg, mushroom, nori and kimchi.
Sunday brunch at Hearth and Hill brings even more consumable delights. Snack on cheddar bites with honey butter and cracked pepper while you await your avocado salad with romaine, radish, cucumber, orange segments, seed granola misted with cilantro coconut dressing. Their dessert menu is equally amazing. If you’ve never had popcorn almond pot de creme (or never heard of it!), you have to try this dessert that comes with caramel sauce and chocolate almond popcorn crunch.
