DEER VALLEY, Utah, Dec. 8 /PRNewswire/ — Bistro Toujours, the nationally- recognized French bistro nestled within the majestic setting of Deer Valley at the exclusive Chateaux at Silver Lake hotel condominium, today announced the season opening of its restaurant under the direction of esteemed new Executive Chef David Kratky, formerly of the Four Diamond award-winning Goldener Hirsch Inn in Park City.

Since opening to great fanfare in February 2001, Bistro Toujours was designed to complement the decor of a true European Chateau with breathtaking views of the snow-capped mountains from almost every seat.

“At Bistro Toujours, I thrive on exploring my creativity and passion for fresh fish and wild game, while maintaining true French influence on the menu,” said Kratky. “I enjoy serving rare foods with good flavors and infusing three or four different components in a dish. For me, it’s the little things because I want to be the best and take the extra step.”

Highlighting the winter menu are regional specialties such as the tenderloin of elk Wellington with forestiere Pate with wild mushroom duxelles, Napoleon of leeks and red bliss potatoes, organic baby carrots beurre noissete and red currant infused elk demi glace.
