A Gathering Spot

“A gathering spot.” What does that mean to you? We hope it’s what we’ve created at Hearth and Hill, where dependably good food, drinks, service and prices – – in a fun environment – – greet locals and visitors alike. Welcome!

Hearth and Hill’s Heritage

Brooks Kirchheimer has had the restaurant bug for as long as he can remember. “The very first Christmas present I can recall requesting was a cash register, when I was just a tyke. I probably drove my two sisters and parents crazy badgering them to play restaurant!”

Since earning a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management from the University of Denver in 2008, Brooks has managed a variety of popular restaurants, including at Montage Beverly Hills and Deer Valley, Park City’s former Main Street landmark Zoom, and Merriman’s in Maui.

Brooks is eager to pay it forward: “I learned a ton from my former bosses, such as Steve Solomon and Peter Merriman. I hope I can benefit careers of people I now supervise like they benefited mine.”

In 2017, Brooks and his wife Catherine returned home to Park City, ready to pursue his lifelong dream of starting his own restaurant. Recently retired from his finance career, Brooks’s dad, David, was eager to be his financial partner.

David, who with his wife Sherry has owned a Deer Valley home since 2007, was thrilled at the prospect: “Brooks and I have very complementary skills and experiences, so we make a perfect team. Plus, we have a shared passion for creating an organizational culture that’s beneficial to our associates, guests and community. I hope the family ties between Brooks and me carry over to all of Hearth and Hill’s associates.”

For Brooks, it’s about writing the next chapter of a story spawned by the cash register left by Santa Claus years ago. “Hearth and Hill’s mantra is to ‘Inspire our associates, thrill our guests, and enrich our community.’ We’ve assembled an incredible, local management team to help me achieve that commitment, each and every day.”

Hearth and Hill represents Brooks’s entrée into restaurant ownership, a lifelong dream. In 2008, the La Canada, CA native received his Restaurant and Hotel Management degree from the University of Denver, after which the new Montage Beverly Hills hotel hired him to launch its Conservatory Grill. Just a year later, Brooks was tapped to run the room service and amenity program, followed in 2010 by a move to the new Montage Deer Valley, where he managed Daly’s Pub & Rec.

In 2013, Brooks was recruited to Zoom, the Sundance Resort property on Main Street, where he and his team resurrected this landmark restaurant’s fortunes. In late 2015, Brooks and his wife Catherine moved to Maui, where Brooks served as an Assistant General Manager at famed restaurateur Peter Merriman’s eponymous oceanside restaurant.

In late 2017, Brooks and Catherine, and their dog Boone, returned home to Park City, in part to pursue Brooks’s goal of starting his own restaurant. Brooks wouldn’t do it anywhere else: “I’m grateful and humbled by the opportunity to affect positively so many lives in a community I love, starting with our associates. Each day, I’m driven by the desire to make Hearth and Hill a popular gathering spot for every resident and visitor to the area.”

Kori Durfee

General Manager

Kori was raised on Lake Sunapee, NH, where her first jobs included scooping gelato at a local deli and hostessing at a lakeside restaurant. This was her introduction to the industry and becoming involved with her community ignited her passion for Hospitality. She moved to Salt Lake City in 2009 to pursue a degree in International Business at Westminster College and continued to work in the Food & Beverage industry while advancing her education. After graduating in 2013, Kori began working at Silver Fork Lodge in Big Cottonwood Canyon which launched her career in Hospitality. She experienced all facets of the restaurant, lodge and event venue and was promoted to General Manager in 2016. Wanting to develop herself further personally and professionally, Kori enrolled in the Hospitality Operations Certificate program through the Univeristy of Utah and AHLEI in 2019. 

At home, Kori and her husband Travis, share their passion for food and gathering where they regularly cook together and entertain family and friends. “For us, the kitchen is the heart of the home and we open our doors to those around us to share in the joy that food, friendship and conversation brings.” 

Jordan Harvey

Executive Chef

Jordan, who moved to Park City in 2010, has served as Sous Chef or Executive Chef at some of the town’s most renowned restaurants, including Zoom, Apex in Montage Deer Valley, and Grappa. His passion for living off the land led Jordan, his girlfriend Jessie, and their dogs Duke and Layla, to buy a cabin in the woods, expanding his insights into how local ingredients can create healthy, delicious dishes.

Jordan earned a degree in Culinary Arts at Johnson & Wales University in Denver, after which he moved to Vail to cook at award-winning Sweet Basil. Jordan’s experience also includes restaurants in New York City, Portland, Oregon, and Charleston, contributing to his knowledge of American regional specialties.

Jordan enriches our community by volunteering with local nonprofit organizations and artisan food purveyors.
