Mar | Muntanya, Salt Lake City’s highly anticipated Spanish-inspired rooftop restaurant, debuts in the heart of bustling downtown on Thursday, October 20, 2022.
Mar | Muntanya is the newest dining destination to join the city’s thriving culinary scene.
Located in the heart of the vibrant downtown city center, Mar | Muntanya serves up a lively dining experience celebrating the culture and flavors of Northern Spanish cuisine with a Salt Lake twist and equally appetizing views of the surrounding skyline and mountain scenery.
Helmed by Executive Chef Tyson Peterson, a Salt Lake City native, Mar |Muntanya’s menu draws inspiration from the coastal and mountainous regions of Basque Country and Catalonia, where the character of the land is akin to the Great Salt Lake Valley and contrasting Rocky Mountains.
With a name meaning ‘sea and mountain,’ the menu combines regional specialties from land and sea, while highlighting the culinary bounty in and around Salt Lake City.
Farm-to-table dining is a cornerstone of the restaurant, embracing the state of Utah’s preservation and homesteading heritage which parallels the shepherding communities in Northern Spain.
Local purveyors such as Morgan Valley Lamb, Jones Creek Beef, Drakes Family Farms and Johnson Family Eggs are featured.
Sophisticated yet approachable, the menu focuses on Chef Peterson’s interpretation of tapas-style dining with small or individual shareable portions.
On the menu are tapas and pintxos, common in Spain’s northern Basque Country, such as the M|M Oysters with beef tartare, house-made coctel sauce and spruce mignonette; Elk Carpaccio featuring shepherds’ bread, rosemary cream, forest mushrooms and Manchego cheese; and Funeral Croquettas or cheesy hash-brown casserole fritters with corn flakes, pickled Fresno chili and scallion aioli.
Entrees showcase the land and sea with dishes including Striploin a Rodanxes Niman Ranch grass-fed beef, red chimichurri, horseradish aioli; Slow-Cooked Seabass with Idaho potato, Spanish olive oil, eggplant pisto; and Roasted Elk Tenderloin with potato puree, Iberico bacon, blackberry jus and sage crumb. Entrees to be shared for the table include Paella Mar | Muntanya made with La Bomba rice, Bilbao chorizo, confit chicken thighs, rock shrimp, mussels, piquillo peppers, peas, and saffron.
For dessert, indulge in Cinnamon Churros with Leatherby’s hot fudge and caramel; Sour Cream Cheesecake with rioja wine sauce and local cherry conserva; and Lemon Natilla a Spanish-style custard with Mantecado cookie crumble and lemon curd.
From the bar, a menu of craft cocktails features Spanish-style Gin and Tonics including the SLC with gin, dry vermouth, grapefruit juice, tonic and lime; traditional cocktails like the Carajillo with rum, espresso and sugar; and specialty cocktails such as the Apasionado with Pisco Logia Puro, peach syrup, passion fruit syrup, lime and orange bitters.
Imported Spanish wines, local Utah ciders, craft and local beers and house-made Sangria, including a signature white and red version, are also on the menu.
An ideal date-night location, Mar | Muntanya is situated on the sixth floor of Salt Lake City’s newest hotel, Hyatt Regency Salt Lake City, boasting stunning rooftop views of the majestic Wasatch Mountains and city skyline.
The space, designed by New York agency Parts and Labor Design, features a sophisticated palette of rich colors and textures to create an alluring yet comfortable atmosphere that blends an urban sensibility with the modernity of Salt Lake City.
Mar | Muntanya is located at 170 South West Temple in Salt Lake City, Utah, and will operate five days a week. The restaurant debuts with dinner service Tuesday through Saturday from 5:00pm to 10:00pm.
A lighter menu with cocktails is available beginning at 4:00pm.
