Apex Restaurant Review: Apex, the signature restaurant at Montage Deer Valley, presents an elegant, lodge-like dining room with fireplaces and beautiful mountain views. The bar and seasonal outdoor patio afford still more opportunities to gaze at the surrounding scenery. Located at the base of the Empire Express chairlift, this is also a convenient ski-in/ski-out restaurant. The cuisine highlights fresh, local products, and the menu even boasts a list of their artisanal purveyors, including Copper Moose Farm and Snowy Mountain Creamery. Breakfast begins with build-your-own omelets and other classic morning fare, while lunch features dishes such as sweet pea gazpacho; wild salmon salad with orange sherry vinaigrette; and blackened shrimp tacos. At dinner you can indulge in seared foie gras to start, but we were impressed by the light and refreshing tuna tartare with smoked tomato broth, tomato confit, fennel & radish salad and cucumber. Global influences appear in main dishes, which range from chicken schnitzel with lemon herb spätzle and braised red cabbage to Loch Duart salmon with red beet & quinoa tabbouleh. Among the desserts you’ll find apple strudel with vanilla ice cream and raisin coulis. To complement your meal, make a selection from the comprehensive wine list, classic cocktails or draft beers, which include brews made exclusively for the resort by Park City's Wasatch Brew Pub. Monty's Belgian White Ale is named after the friendly Bernese mountain dog that resides at the Montage Deer Valley and greets guests.
