Good Eats in Park City 4

Riverhorse Provisions Market and Café is a delicious visit located in the iconic blue and stone building at the top of Main Street

Last December the Riverhorse Hospitality Group, well known for their flagship restaurant Riverhorse on Main, opened their newest project called Riverhorse Provisions Market and Café. It’s a must visit this upcoming ski season, located in the old Imperial Hotel building at 221 Main Street in downtown Park City. The easily recognizable blue and stone building at the top of Main Street is an iconic sight.

As one of North America’s top culinary destinations, Riverhorse on Main’s eclectic American menu rotates for seasonal and creative demands, while providing traditional favorites. Rated highly on a list of top restaurants in the nation, it has received fabulous testimonials from food critics all over the world, won dozens of awards (including the Forbes Travel Guide Four Star Award), and was the first restaurant in Utah to win the prestigious DiRōNA Award.

Riverhorse Provisions provides the same quality of food and service in a bistro-style setting. This new gourmet market has you covered when seeking quality food quickly, whether on your way to work, or just getting off the ski hill. Grab your favorite coffee in the coffee shop downstairs, or meander upstairs for breakfast, lunch, and all-day snack menus, as well as some convenient everyday grocery and personal care items. The market also includes a simple variety of unique meats and cheeses, as well as local honeys and jams. “We have daily specials, a chef-sandwich, and soup of the day, as well as other hot menu items. Riverhorse Provisions is also introducing gourmet “take-n-bake” meals prepared in one of our own kitchens which guests can finish cooking in the comfort of their own home,” says Lee Ellenburg, Director of Operations.

The upstairs floor also houses cases full of their grab-n-go, à-la-carte food items, or the newly introduced “take-n-bake” meals. When ordering something fresh off the menu or grabbing something to go, you will find Riverhorse quality behind each bite. Seth Adams, Executive Chef, and Mark Smith, Corporate Chef for the Riverhorse Hospitality Group, are in-house preparing Riverhorse on Main favorites to go, and creating new, fresh menu and to-go items like buffalo meatloaf, wild-game meatballs, chicken pot pie, barbequed ribs, and vegetarian lasagna. These grab-n-go and take-n-bake options provide high-quality food options without the hassle of going out after a long day of deep powder skiing, or waiting for delivery, which can run up to an hour during winter months.

A highlight of Riverhorse Provisions is their Picnic Basket Menu. Place an order for a chef-inspired picnic basket that you can take on your next Park City adventure. Try the Country Picnic basket with fried chicken, corn bread, summer vegetables, potato salad, and peach cobbler. Or the Seafood Sampler basket filled with chilled lobster salad, crackers, smoked salmon, crispy potato, dill crème fraiche, and cocktail sauce. Riverhorse Provisions also offers beers, wine by the glass, and cocktails if you’d prefer to stay and sip, while enjoying the atmosphere and food delicacies.

Park City locals and business owners affectionately refer to autumn months as “mud season,” and business is typically slow. As I sit at Riverhorse Provisions in the middle of September, eating the delicious English muffin breakfast and sipping my warm coffee, this place is anything but slow. Locals are streaming in, ordering their morning pick-me-ups, chatting with each other, heading to work, or enjoying the start of their weekend. While tourists will stream through this place during winter months because of the proven quality of the Riverhorse name, fabulous location, and the unique atmosphere, the locals are already supporting the market during these autumn months.

“The brand is getting really, really big. We are not going to slow down, there will be no mud season for us, the brand is constantly growing, people are flying in from all over the world and love coming to Riverhorse. Chef Adams has put in the hard work in the kitchen, and established a name and a brand, now we need to stay ahead of the game, while taking baby steps. Introducing, Riverhorse Provisions,” says Ellenburg. Make Riverhorse Provisions a priority visit next time you are in Park City, no matter the season.
