Restaurant Recommendations is Park City?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Any recommendations for good restaurants in Park City?

Looking for good food and fun/stylish/nice (not insanely expensive, but in the normal "nice" range). Ideally in the PC main town center.

Thanks.

There was a sushi restaurant on the main strip through town that was very good. Unfortunately, I can't recall the name right now but it was over by the town lift I think.

Don't know that I'd call it stylish and nice but we loved the "No Name Saloon." Fun atmosphere with a pub grub menu. We had a spiced up buffalo burger one night there -- IMO the best burger I've ever had anywhere. Liked it so much we went back a second time during our week stay. It's quite inexpensive. We also liked Wasatch Brew Pub but I think I liked drinking there more than I really thought the food was terrific. We also ate at Chimayo (SP?) which was pretty high end, great ambience, great decor, great presentaion but... We thought the food was good but not worth the money.

That would be the flying sumo. Zoom, Bandits, Davanza's, Grapo are all great places to eat.

AC when will you be in Park City? There are almost to many good places to eat in this town. Most places on main st are pricey. Here are a few places that are on the high end side of things. Grapa is according to zaggots one of the best Restaurants in the Rockie Mountains. River Horse one of my favorites, has always been good. Waso is Oriental is good but expensive. Not as expensive but still good is Cafe Terigo. They have a great Bread pudding desert. More relaxed and friendly with good Vietnameses food is Taste of Saigon. It is also run be some really nice people. I will say the Burgers at No Name Saloon are worth a visit. Shabu in the Main St mall has good Japaness style food. Easy Street on lower main is good but expensive. they do have a great bar. Zoom is always good and they have a bar menu so you can get some good food for less money. Wasatch brew pub is the best beer in town food just OK.

We always enjoyed La Casita set back a block from the main street.

Baja Cantina for really good Mexican and on Main Street if I remember correctly. The marguaritas were especially tasty.
Adolph's was upscale and had wonderful food and not too pricey.
I second, or was it third the Zoom reccomendation.

Baja Cantina, seconded.

Grappa was ok, good but way pricey for what you got. The butcher shop was good two years ago but have not heard anyone else mention it. Not sure it was still there. Best stylish restaurant bang for my buck. great steaks. Baja catina was good with good portions for a cheaper grill type meal.

TripAdvisor.com lists these places as the best in town...

1.) Chez Betty
2.) Adolph's
3.) Glitretind
4.) Purple Sage
5.) Grappa

People have mentioned that Adolph's and Grappa are good - any feedback on the others?

It's a few years back now but I was delighted to find an authentic Thai restaurant (my fave cuisine) in Park City. On Main St... it might have been called "Main St Thai". Really nice food and I loved the way they graded the chili heat: green, blue, black and double black.

I was in PC from the 6th to the 13th. It is true that the restaurants on Main Street are expensive. The same place a few miles away would cost lots less. Here are the places i went to.
Cafe Terigo
Zoom
Ghidotti's
Wasatch Brew Pub
Seafood Buffet at Deer Valley
Easy Street
Mustang

They were all good, all semi-expensive. Ghidotti's was probably the best for the money most likely because it was in Kimball Junction. Also, supposedly they are the same owners as Grappa. The seafood buffet - (54pp) seemed like it was going to be way too expensive turned out to be not so bad when considering the prices at other restaurants.

OK, what about cheap eats in PC (or at least cheaper)? (These are, almost by definition, not on Main St).

My faves:

1. El Chubasco
2. Loco Lizard (Kimball Junction)
3. Greek place in Kimball Junction (if its still there).
4. prepared foods at Dan's supermarket: roast chicken, grape leaves, salads. (Also lunch fixins).
5. Teriyaki place next to Dan's.
6. Saigon Cafe (exception to the not-on-Main St rule).

I have had mixed success at Mt. Chicken Rotisserie place. And don't get me started on pizza.

Any new one's? I recall a curry place that sounded pretty interesting? And isn't Baja Cantina at the PCMR base?

Loco Lizard.
There is a new Burrito place next to the theaters, I can't remember the name, but the burritos are cheap and one is enough to feed two people. Delicious!
The Marriott in Prospecter has a pretty decent cheaper restaurant in it.
The Broken Thumb is decent bar food with pool, but it is in the Racquet Club.
Red Rock is at Red Stone, pretty good food.

another vote for Wasatch Brew Pub

I'm a beer snob, and methinks the Wasatch Brew pub has some of the best microbrews I've ever tasted. The alcohol content is less than typical micro's due to some arcane Utah regulation, but that's a bonus for me, I can imbibe more with less impact on my skiing the next day.
The food is good there, but the liquid bread is sublime.

For desert, there's a choclateer on the main street that has killer carmel dipped granny smith apples.

I always thought that too, but I bought some Wasatch beer the other day and it had something like 5 or 6% alcohol on the label. Now I'm not so sure.

Edit: Ok it's the amarillo mole'....

MOLE AMARILLO (Spicy) This mole is not for the timid palate. A lighter, yellow sauce based on three fresh chiles, pumpkin seeds, and thickened with fresh corn masa. $13.99
EDIT2: If you ask they will print out the ingredents list of their mole's for you...

I second that ( I could talk all day about darker beer) and I thought I was the only one that called dark beers liquid bread.... at least here at home.
And I am also in the minority in liking darker, fuller, stouter beers since I am a woman.

Reservations Required

I read recently that many of the rest. in PC require reservations - do you find that to be true? Even on the weekdays? I hate being on a time schedule :-/
