Powder, Waldorf Astoria, Park City Utah: A Children’s Tasting Menu

We stopped into Powder, the restaurant at the Waldorf Astoria in Park City (UT), for dinner on my last night visiting.

Our meal started with an amuse bouche of a tartlet filled with goat cheese and herbed brie for the adults, and ants on a log (celery filled with peanut butter and topped with Craisins) for my 2-year-old grandson who was dining with us.

Two of us ordered the tasting menu. Me ($40/person) and my grandson, as Powder has an amazing children’s tasting menu ($21) with a choice for the main course choice of fried chicken or Tasmanian salmon.

 

For the table, we shared the wood-grilled cauliflower accompanied by a spiced curried yogurt, all topped with Marcona almonds and chimichurri ($14).

I began with an attractively presented salad of roasted beets and carrots on lettuce lightly dressed in a sherry-wine vinaigrette along with a glass of Pine Ridge, Chenin Blanc Viognier, Napa ($12). Others who had the simple artisan greens ($12) raved.

The tasting menus (adult and child) intermezzo was a delightful housemade raspberry basil sorbet with blood orange caviar to clear our palette before the main course.

One at our table tried the tender buttermilk fried organic white meat chicken ($35) with whipped
cheddar potatoes, pancetta braised greens, some pickles and a small pitcher of country gravy. Another had the flavorful pappardelle ($15) overloaded with foraged mushrooms and some butternut squash seasoned with truffle butter.

My lamb loin entrée, cooked to perfection, was accompanied by grilled endive, citrus-olive tapenade and a quinoa tabbouleh. I savored a glass of Horse Heaven Hills, Columbia Crest, Cabernet Sauvignon, 2015 ($11) while enjoying my meal.

My dessert was butter pecan cookies pieces atop a decadent mascarpone soft serve sprinkled with candied ginger and white chocolate snow.

For a respite after a day on the slopes, I recommend a visit to Powder.
