Opening soon: New Kimball Junction restaurant Aubergine Kitchen

PARK CITY, Utah — A new restaurant is opening in Kimball Junction called Aubergine Kitchen.

Parkites may be somewhat familiar with the name as this one, opening in mid-September, will be its tenth Utah location.

Jason Osmond, VP of marketing for Aubergine, told TownLift, “We love Park City and had been considering an expansion there for a long time. We wanted to make sure we got just the right spot, so when this became available, we jumped on the exciting opportunity.”

The name Aubergine is the French word for eggplant, Osmond said, sums up our style and represents what they do and who they are in that it’s rare, fresh, unique, healthy, and beautiful.

They specialize in American twists on Mediterranean, Brazilian, and Lebanese famous favorites but are not necessarily exclusive to any area, country, or culture.

Speaking about the variety of menu items at Aubergine Kitchen, where eggplants make a few appearances, Osmond said, “We almost consider ourselves part of a healthcare regimen, rather than a restaurant business because our main message to people is that we can change lives with real food. So there’s absolutely zero refined sugar in anything that we serve. And we use only extra virgin olive oil in all of our cooking. There are many surprises throughout the menu, and our owners being Brazilian, we’re actually most famous for our Brazilian Cheese Bread.” 

The other locations are dotted along the Wasatch Front except for the one in St. George.

“We want to provide every avenue possible for people to order. We are available on DoorDash, GrubHub and UberEATS. We also have an app that people can order from either pickup, and we do delivery through those delivery platforms, but you can order through the app or go to our website and order directly from there. However, it works best for people,” said Osmond

In 2004, Park City’s Sundance Film Festival showed a movie entitled Super Size Me, for which the director and star of the documentary was awarded the Grand Jury Prize. The film showed the negative effects concentrated unhealthy eating can do to a human body over 30 days. Undersize Me is the gist of a similar experiment after which Aubergine Kitchen created a YouTube video showing the positive effects concentrated of healthy eating over 30 days. 

Osmond said, “We do tons of giveaways; our favorite ones are our $500 giveaways for people who reach out with a genuine interest in  changing their lives via a more healthy state of eating.”  

They hope you start your day off with menu items like an Egg Avocado Bowl with avocado, goat cheese, kale, local organic multiseed whole wheat sourdough, micro greens, pasture-raised eggs, red onions, red peppers, and tomatoes.

Later in the day, they serve, among many other items, a Spicy Coconut Chicken Curry Bowl with sweet potatoes, kale, carrots, green peas, cauliflower, chickpeas, and microgreens.

Their Auber-Zine blog, accessed on the online web page’s tab, references articles written by third-party entities and highlights “our approach to healthy eating [which] is driven by research and open-mindedness. Here, you’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at our food, philosophy, inspiration, and more.”

The new Park City location takes over where there previously was a ‘Bout Time sports bar and grill and shares a building with Starbucks and Black Diamond Gymnastics.
