Hearth and Hill Park City Restaurant Demonstrates Commitment To Community and Employees
With roughly 200 restaurants in the greater Park City area, why open another one? The answer was obvious to local restaurateur Brooks Kirchheimer, “a lack of upscale full-service dining choices in convenient, attractive surroundings, with prices accessible to year-round residents,” he noted.
In 2018, Hearth and Hill was born, a new contemporary-industrial home to cuisine, cocktails, and service that, in 2019, garnered top-three honors in Park City’s Best awards.
Brooks located Hearth and Hill in the Kimball Junction area to offer lunch, dinner, full bar service, and Sunday brunch with abundant free parking in a convenient location for employees and guests.
The spacious interior includes such amenities as flexible seating, a large private dining room with a fireplace, raised bar area with two big-screen televisions, all in a high-ceiling, open floorplan that features an exhibition kitchen. The restaurant’s wide folding doors open to a dog-friendly patio with a fireplace and mountain views. Local musicians periodically provide live entertainment.
Hearth and Hill is committed to inspiring its associates, thrilling its guests, and enriching the Park City community. Brooks was able to attract his prior executive chef to design and execute locally sourced dishes that consistently garner customer’s rave reviews.
Brooks, a co-owner with his parents, is proud of Hearth and Hill’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. “Our associates instantly embraced new health department protocols and innovated curbside pick-up, free delivery, and other dine-out options to keep our guests fed well and safe. Meanwhile, we supported our associates by continuing benefits and providing employment.” The restaurant also demonstrated its unwavering commitment to the community by providing free meals, hosting charity fundraisers, and making financial donations.
Hearth and Hill, open daily, reopened to dine-in, following physical distancing and other pandemic-related rules, on May 21.
Brooks credits the ‘In Utah’ initiative for his restaurant’s successful tackling of the pandemic. “The state of Utah’s financial and promotional support has been huge. Just as we aspire to have our community’s back, it’s comforting to know the state has the backs of small businesses such as ours.”
Hearth and Hill uses its “Shop in Utah” grant to offer a $25 gift voucher with a minimum purchase.
