Executive Sous Chef Christian Ojeda is enhancing the dinner scene in the resort’s signature restaurant Apex

PARK CITY, UTAH (July 13, 2017) - Montage Deer Valley is enhancing the dining experience at the resort’s signature restaurant, Apex, and creating a fresh take on its dinner concept. Executive Sous Chef Christian Ojeda has transformed the menu into a modern interpretation of the American steakhouse by introducing Apex Steak for the restaurant’s dinner service, which is now available every evening from 5:30pm to 9:00pm.

Apex has offered guests and locals classic continental cuisine in an unforgettable mountain setting, with a relaxed yet refined dining experience. Chef Ojeda is excited to now offer guests something new that continues to celebrate a classical ambiance while featuring an innovative American menu with typical steakhouse classics. “Guests can expect to find some of the standard steakhouse classics, but I like to keep our dishes interesting by using progressive techniques and ingredients,” said Chef Ojeda. “For example, we will be serving an Ahi Tuna Tartare with a tomato soy vinaigrette and a spicy tapioca puff as well as a modern take on a Roasted Alaskan Halibut, which is topped with charred onions soubise and a red pepper nage.”

The new menu will consist of exceptional steak cuts from small family farms, ingredients from artisanal producers and the freshest seafood prepared expertly by Ojeda and his culinary team. Highlights from the new menu include, Double Cut Lamb Chops, Wagyu Tomahawk Ribeye and the Epic Roast, which have been specially created to pair with hearty, family-style sides like the Blue Cheese Scalloped Potatoes and Grilled Street Corn.

The restaurant’s impressive wine list is suited to match the concept of Apex Steak with an expansive collection of reds from around the world, with a focus on California Cabernets for the new menu. An expert team of certified sommeliers are available nightly to enhance the Montage Deer Valley dining experience with exceptional wine pairings.

Breakfast and lunch will continue to be available throughout the year, every day from 7:00am – 11:00am and 11:00am – 3:00pm.
