Tupelo Announces New Farm-to-Table Destination Dining in Heber, Utah

Chef Matthew Harris

One of Park City’s most acclaimed fine dining establishments, Tupelo Park City, introduces their newest concept in the beautiful Heber Valley, Utah. In the coming weeks, Chef Matthew Harris and his team will unveil Afterword by Tupelo Park City, a unique destination dining experience within Heber’s thriving downtown.   

“It has been an honor to serve our guests in the heart of Park City for the last five years, and we are thrilled for the opportunity to offer this new experience to the community we call home,” said Tupelo Park City Partner Maggie Alvarez. “An afterword is a commentary, not a conclusion. We’re excited to explore this fresh, playful variation of the Tupelo Park City vision, while maintaining our signature standards for warm hospitality and quality ingredients.”

Nestled in a historic home in what was most recently Main Street Social, Afterword will be the ultimate farm-to-table experience, offering ample outdoor dining space on its spacious patio. Like all of Chef Harris’ endeavors, it will be fueled by local producers, ranchers, and farmers, some of whom are located less than five miles away. Chef Harris’ own micro-farm, Tupelo Farm, is also located in Midway, Utah, just a few miles away.

Due to the changing dynamics of restaurant dining, Tupelo Park City is moving on from its flagship location.  However, Chef Harris continues to serve the Park City community with his sister concept, RIME Seafood & Steak at The St. Regis Deer Valley, and looks forward to offering this altogether different experience in the rapidly growing Heber Valley, a scenic 20 minute drive from Park City’s Main Street.

“We are so proud of our sustainably caught seafood and locally sourced meats offered at RIME at St. Regis,” said Tupelo Park City Chef & Owner Matthew Harris. “Our intimate new dining experience, award winning wine list, and craft cocktail program at Afterword will be the perfect complement.” 

Afterword by Tupelo Park City will open on July 1, 2020. Tupelo Park City remains deeply committed to its Park City roots and will seek appropriate opportunities to return to Park City in the future.
