When looking for a place to eat while traveling, I trust A: the locals and B: any place with longevity.

Enter Adolph’s, opened by Adolph Imboden in 1974. Although it is his namesake, I can’t say I’m a huge fan of the name. I am however, a huge fan of the food and ambiance in this quintessential ski town eatery.

When in Park City, this place is a must. The interior is plastered with photos of the many celebrities who have frequented this spot. Curious as to the allure? Check out write up from Park City magazine  here.

“It isn’t just the European cuisine that attracts the famous, the tourists, and the locals, but the personable feel of Adolph’s place. Each evening, he can be seen through the open kitchen window cooking and scrutinizing plates before they exit into the dining area. Dressed in his chef’s whites, he makes a point of greeting guests and visiting tables to inquire about their meals. He wants them to feel welcome, as if they were sitting in his own living room.” – Park City magazine

Here is a sampling of the table:

Raclette Swiss Style (GF)

Ever since I tasted Raclette in Europe I’ve been waiting for the day I would come across a menu that served it. The easiest way to describe it? Melted cheese on a plate. Or to get literal,  ”a Swiss dish consisting of cheese melted over a fire and then scraped onto bread or boiled potatoes“. I mean – what’s not to love?


Mediterranean Chicken Salad (GF)

My dish – with house dressing (GF). Interesting twist on Mediterranean with fruit.


Veal Bratwurst

Jenny's Special: Chicken Schnitzel

Jenny’s Special: Chicken Schnitzel

The reason it’s Jenny’s special? Because it’s not on the menu – only veal schnitzel is. My friend ordered it so much, it’s now her “regular” dish there.

And you can’t dine Swiss without some form of fondue. We went with chocolate…

 …it was terrible.


Rating: B+
Pros: Can’t go wrong with the classics; raclette, schnitzel, bratwurst
Cons: Some dishes can use a 2013 revamp.
