About tupelo

One of Park City’s newest fine dining establishments, tupelo honors artisanal and sustainable producers worldwide. With notes of global inspiration and a nod toward quality ingredients, tupelo is sharing vibrant stories through lush, unconventional fare. Located at 508 Main Street in a three-story, 1926 historic building in the heart of Park City, Utah, Chef Matthew Harris’ world travels and personal experiences with sustainable, artisanal food producers inspires tupelo’s menu.

Derived from the gold standard of honeys, the name tupelo reflects the adaptation of Harris’ native Southern roots to the Beehive State. Just as a hive is both vital to and dependent upon its environment, tupelo also pays homage to the hyper-local, small-scale production model epitomized by bees. Like a bee that produces complex honey by traveling from bloom to bloom, Chef Harris’ handcrafted cuisine is the distinct result of the farmers, fisherfolk, and artisans met during his cross-country travels. With skills honed in major culinary empires, such as Jean-George Vongerichten, Kevin Rathbun, and Pano Karatossos’ Buckhead Life Restaurant Group, Chef Harris is a longtime practitioner of slow food and farm-to-table cuisine. He has appeared on CBS’ Fresh From the Kitchen as a celebrity guest chef and in Food and Wine, SKI, Esquire and more.
