Leave Room
For Dessert Eateries
We are a family-run joint, and in our family, you always leave room for dessert. There is nothing the Kirchheimer family loves more than bringing people together to enjoy a meal. You may know us from Hearth and Hill, our award-winning restaurant in Park City, but we’re much more than that. We’re excited to be opening several new locations in 2022 offering a range of dining experiences for all lovers of food to enjoy.
Heritage
David and Brooks Kirchheimer are the father-son duo behind the operation. Brooks has had the restaurant bug for as long as he can remember. The first Christmas present he can recall requesting was a cash register so he could turn his living room into a restaurant and his family into his well-trained associates.

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 Montage Beverly Hills and Deer Valley, Park City’s former Main Street landmark Zoom, and Merriman’s in Maui.

Now, after becoming a restaurant owner himself, Brooks is excited to bring together a team of talented individuals and provide the opportunity for them to make their mark in the restaurant industry. “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 our associates.”

For Brooks, it’s about writing the next chapter of a story spawned by the cash register left by Santa Claus years ago. “Our 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.”
Our Team
Brooks Kirchheimer
Co-Owner
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.”
