Fast forward, and after a Restaurant Management degree at the University of Denver and a decade managing at the renowned Montage in Beverly Hills and Deer Valley, Zoom in Park City, and Merriman’s in Maui, Brooks was eager to open his own restaurant.
Partnering with his parents, Brooks opened Hearth and Hill in 2018. The upscale-casual, family friendly eatery instantly became a popular local gathering spot and perennial award winner.
Key to this success is a commitment to “Inspire our associates, thrill our guests, and enrich our community.” Delivering on this commitment was particularly important during the pandemic. As Brooks said, “The pandemic underscored the desire of people to enjoy the company of friends and family, and the vitality that such gatherings inject into the community. If a meal at one of our places can serve that purpose, that’s very gratifying.”
After three years, expansion beckoned, with new concepts and locations that complement the original: Hill’s Kitchen, café & catering, in Park City, and Urban Hill, a fine-dining restaurant, and a second Hearth and Hill, both in Salt Lake City. Just like the first Hearth and Hill, they feature inviting environments and Dream Teams of restaurant talent.
Leave Room for Dessert Eateries, the name that encompasses the four establishments, was an easy choice, given the Kirchheimer Family’s sweet tooth!
