Cafe Terigo, Park City, Utah
There are known for their Bread Pudding with Rum Sauce which was yummy, though a large enough portion to share. Hubby had Tiramisu and Darling Daughter had The Trio Gelato. We're looking forward to our next meal there when we return to Park City.
The newspaper, The Park Record was owned and operated for 63 years by Samuel LePage Raddon son of Henry George and Judith LePage Raddon. Sam was born in 1858 in Guernsey in Great Britain and immigrated at the age of 10 with his parents, who were converts to the Mormon Faith. His family didn't remain with the Church.
He learned his trade working in a variety of jobs in both Salt Lake and Park City, until he became the owner of this establishment. He out lived 2 severe depressions, 3 competitive newspapers, slumps in the mining industry which caused significant financial change in the community and a fire in 1898 that burned his plant. Even with those difficulties he continued operations of the paper for 63 years, a remarkable record. At one point he even operated his Paper from a tent! He retired in 1948 and turned over the operations to his son, LePage. Samuel lived to be 89 years old dying a short time after retiring.
It's note worthy that since his family left "The Fold" business was harder as they weren't supportive. He later, as an adult was fairly outspoken about some of "their" practices and wrote openly about them in his paper. For more interesting information on this man, click HERE.
I highly recommend this restaurant for a special night out, particularly recommend it for adults.
Do make reservations, as it's quite popular. Cafe Terigo serves lunch from 11:30-2:30, then closes to prepare for the dinner service which starts at 5:30 pm.
