We were the first that ever burst
Into that silent sea.

RIME descends from a lifetime commitment to the culinary arts and is the latest endeavor from Matt Harris, renowned chef and Park City restaurant owner.
Chef Matt’s career began in Atlanta with Kevin Rathbun and Pano Karatossos of the Buckhead Life Restaurant Group; over time, Matt became Executive Chef of the Buckhead Diner. From there, he opened Atlanta’s critically acclaimed Market by Jean-Georges, achieving four-star reviews. Along the way, Matt trained at Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s renowned New York establishments. In Park City, Matt opened the J&G Grill (his second Jean-Georges restaurant) and the St. Regis Bar (at St. Regis Deer Valley), before opening tupelo Park City as Chef/Owner in 2015.
Chef Matt’s culinary expertise garners acclaim from foodies and skiers alike. His dishes feature in Food and Wine, Bon Appetit, SKI, Town & Country, and more. Matt has appeared as a celebrity guest chef on CBS’ Fresh From the Kitchen and NBC’s Today Show, and was selected to cook at the James Beard House in NYC alongside other notable Park City chefs.
Across our restaurants, we focus on good ingredients first and foremost. That means sustainably sourced. At RIME, we only serve seafood that is ethically fished from sources we trust, and our shipments of this bounty arrive fresh each morning, preserving the salty bite of the sea. The result makes all the difference to the flavors of each dish—and to our environment.
Rime \ˈrīm \: noun: frost formed on cold objects by the rapid freezing of water in cloud or fog
RIME is a homonym—one word with two distinct, yet intersecting meanings.
First, rime: rooted in Old Norse, rime is the layer of frost that develops on an object when bitter wind freezes fog or clouds. Often found on the hull of fishing boats, rime is the conflux of ice and sea, the mark of a fishermen’s hard-won prize.
Then, rhyme: the correspondence of sounds between words, often coming together to form a short poem. We were inspired by Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, which regales the plight of a sailor’s voyage. Like the mariner in the poem, our patrons are adventurers at heart—and live to tell the tales of their exploration.
The name RIME reflects the romantic spirit of the sea while paying tribute to Deer Valley’s famous snowy peaks. It’s a delightful contradiction, a happy opposite, a delicious surprise.
