The St. Regis Deer Valley, one of the world’s most luxurious mountain resorts, today announced the opening of a new high-design Italian restaurant, La Stellina (“Little Star”), serving timeless Italian cuisine guided by local star Chef Matthew Harris. La Stellina features elaborate mosaic floors, and welcoming wood, marble, and brass finishes with stylish black-and-white prints that evoke vintage Italy- retro-inspired elegance meets family flair.
Inside the La Stellina kitchen a team of passionate chefs knead pizza dough using timeless Italian techniques, inspired by Chef Harris’ one-on-one training with Italian cesarine— home cooks who teach from the comfort of their own family kitchens. Safeguards of Italy’s cultural heritage, cesarines’ recipes have been passed down for generations. Mozzarella is hand-pulled to perfection as a copper-tiled pizza oven soars above 500°F to achieve the right temperature for classic, crispy pies. Simple, fresh ingredients translate into sophisticated flavors at this innovative restaurant. Locally sourced produce combines with authentic Italian meats, cheeses, and pastas to create dishes that appeal to every age and every palate.
Starters include Compressed Melon with Prosciutto and Aged Balsamic; and La Stellina Panzanella with Focaccia, Cured Tomatoes, Olives, Chicory, Basil and Ricotta Salata. Main Courses include “Cioppino” with Clams, Mussels, Shrimp, Squid, White Wine, Basil and Focaccia; and Whole Roasted Branzino with Broccolini and Lemon; Crispy Chicken Piccata with Lemon, Capers, Black Pepper, Arugula and Parmesan.
Pastas include Ricotta Agnolotti with Swiss Chard, Mortadella and Truffle Butter; and Spaghetti Pomodoro with Crushed Tomato Sauce, Basil and Pecorino. Pizza offerings feature White Clam pizza with Fresh Shucked Clams, Garlic and Oregano; Spicy Sausage with Broccoli Rabe, Lemon and Mozzarella; and Fresh Spinach with Herbs, Chili and Ricotta. The menu is rounded out with side dishes such as Magnate’s Meatball, and Spinach, Garlic, Lemon and Parmesan. A Children’s Menu is available featuring Spaghetti and Tomato Sauce, Chicken Parmesan and Cheese Pizza.
“La Stellina is a chef’s dream,” said Chef Matthew Harris. “Under the tutelage of several Italian cesarines, I learned to cook true, authentic Italian food. I am thrilled to offer the timeless combination of locally-sourced fresh ingredients with Italian meats and cheeses to create the finest in Italian dining for our guests.”
