Chef Matt Harris
Chef & Owner
Tupelo Park City
Some write books. Others shoot films. For Chef-Owner Matthew Harris, his menu captures the vivid culinary stories from his life.
These stories were pursued as mysteries—populated by a cast of characters with patience, passion, and perspective. These craftspeople put time and pride into what they make, and you can taste their thoughtfulness—and his own—in Tupelo Park City’s varied food.
Chef Matt began his culinary career with Kevin Rathbun and Pano Karatossos of the Buckhead Life Restaurant Group (Atlanta), eventually becoming Executive Chef of the Buckhead Diner. He then opened Atlanta’s critically acclaimed Market by Jean-Georges, achieving four-star reviews, and trained at Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s famed New York establishments. He opened J&G Grill (his second Jean-Georges restaurant) and the St. Regis Bar (at St. Regis Deer Valley)—and settled in Park City for the long haul.
An authentic practitioner of the principles of slow food and farm-to-table cuisine, Chef Matt has appeared on CBS’ Fresh From the Kitchen as a celebrity guest chef, and in Food and Wine, Bon Appetit, SKI, Esquire, and more.
In his off hours, he is a true outdoorsman. As a mountaineer, he’s summited Mount Rainier (WA, Liberty Ridge route), Mount Hood (OR, Sandy Glacier Headwall), Cotopaxi (Ecuador), and numerous peaks in the Grand Teton range. And of course, he skis—both on-piste and backcountry.
