The 18 Best Hot Spots for Park City Eating & Drinking, Feb '14

View as Map

Welcome to Curbed Ski's inaugural list of the 18 Best Ski Town Hot Spots, our answer to any question that begins with, "Can you recommend a restaurant in...?" This highly elite group will cover 18 restaurants and bars in ski towns across North America, spanning myriad cuisines and collectively satisfying all of your dining and drinking needs. Every couple months we'll be adding places that were omitted or have stepped up there game. Have a tip? Let us know here.

To get things started, we've personally researched and curated the top spots to eat, drink, snack, and double-down in Park City, Utah. You'll find everything from DIY and fast-casual meals (handy when the kids are in tow) to fine dining. Rather than a stage-4 meltdown over our having excluded your favorite restaurant from the list, wouldn't it be more productive to just nominate it for inclusion?

Please note that this list is ordered geographically, not in any sort of ranking.

1. Fireside Dining At Empire Canyon Lodge

Copy Link
9200 Marsac Avenue
Park City, UT 84060
(435) 645-6632
Visit Website

Sure, the on-mountain, alpine dining experience is overwrought, overpriced, and a gut bomb. But sometimes, it must be done, and at this Deer Valley restaurant, they get it right. With five namesake stone fireplaces offering up Dutch oven specialties like stews and other hearty, meaty fare (try the fire-roasted Leg of Lamb), the signature Raclette, and Dessert Fondue, it’s a fun way to spend a snowy night. Up the ante by arriving by horse-drawn sleigh, or opt to burn those calories by snowshoeing in/out. Open dinner only, Weds-Sat.

2. Deer Valley Grocery Cafe

Located in Deer Valley Plaza in Snow Park, this tiny space turns out housemade baked goods and breads. For breakfast, get Challah French Toast with Fruit Compote or try the (also housemade) Yogurt with Deer Valley Granola. Breakfast Sammies make way for creative lunchtime sandwiches like the Tandoori Chicken Curry Wrap, Shaved Prime Rib Banh Mi, or Grilled Four-Cheese with Grainy Mustard and Granny Smith Apple. Don’t forget to pick up some local specialty foods like jam and cheese to go.

3. O'Shucks Bar & Grill

427 Main St
Park City, UT 84060
(435) 645-3999

When Curbed Ski asked a local about this dive popular with the ski dirtbag crowd (due in part to the bottomless bowls of peanuts), he said, “Lots of peanuts. Sometimes a lingering odor.” While the comment was baffling, even a little ominous, it begged investigation. It wasn’t long before the aforementioned smell was determined to come from fermenting peanut shells on the floor. So settle in with a pint or three (the cocktails are on the weak side, at least in our experience), play a few rounds of Big Buck Hunter or pool, and rub shoulders with the flannel-shirted, snowboarder pack.

4. No Name Saloon & Grill

447 Main St

It’s worth grabbing a pint just so you can gawk at the brick barrel-vault ceiling of this 1905 Mission structure, originally the Utah Independent Telephone Company. Now, the décor is more “random vintage crap,” so take in the mix of taxidermy, rusty outboard motors, old sleds, and full-size motorcycle, in between people-watching. Sure, it’s crowded and noisy, but you don’t come here because you “want to be alone.” Got the drunken munchies? Curb them with Artichoke Jalapeno Dip, burgers, and sandwiches (the Corn [sic] Beef Panini is a town classic), and enjoy the show.

5. Silver Restaurant & Lounge

508 Main St
Park City, UT 84060
(435) 940-1000
Visit Website

This ain’t no disco, especially as it’s located in a 1926 brick building on Main Street, but it’s definitely Park City’s most popping club. From the wine cellar/“lower” dining room to the mezzanine bar and glass-walled terrace, there’s a Sundance-y vibe to the whole affair. Start out with oddly compelling signature cocktails like the Beehive Fizz (Gin, Cointreau, lemon, lime, coconut milk, honey, black tea, cardamom) or Clean Shave (bourbon, aged rum, Benedictine, bitters), or go for Bartender’s Roulette (pick your base and flavor profile, and let the chips fall where they may). Starters have a mostly Mediterranean flair, as with Baby Octopus with Pimentón, Potatoes, Lardo, Olives, and Fennel, or Braised Bacon with Rapini, Turnip, Garbanzo Beans, and Maple Bourbon Glaze. Tuck into entrees like Wild Mushroom Gnoochi or Duck Breast with Coconut Yellow Curry and Red Cabbage, but save room for the Maple “Doughssant” anointed with candied cayenne bacon and served alongside maple ice cream. The Black Garlic Crème Brulee? Mmmm, your call.

6. Talisker on Main

515 Main Street
Park City, UT 84060

Visit Website

Over a decade ago, Talisker- a “luxury real estate, recreation and hospitality company” came to be, and with it, this elegant, Main Street institution. Heirloom produce is seasonally grown on the rooftop gardens, and the staff take field trips to regional farms and food crafters. The menu changes accordingly, but cold weather dishes might include Sunchoke Soup with Park City Apples and Chestnut Butter, Arugula Salad with Pomegranate, Rockhill Creamery Gruyere, Plum Vinaigrette, and Amaranth, and a Pork Rib Chop with Maple Grits, Pickled Apples, Turnips, and Radishes with Savory Gastrique. Swoon. Yum!

7. Riverhorse on Main

Copy Link
540 Main St.
Park City, UT 84060
(435) 649-3536
Visit Website

This sophisticated-but-unstuffy sanctuary on Main Street is justifiably one of the hottest spots in town—you'll need a reservation. But if Riverhorse offers big-city style, it’s still ski town small in its laidback, welcoming demeanor. Here’s a tip: the more sedate-but-chic upstairs bar is first-come, first-served, and service is every bit as friendly. Order up a house cocktail or glass of wine from the well-composed list, and enjoy. The main dining room, however, is stunning: all exposed brick walls, white linen, dark hardwood flooring, blown-glass clusters of light fixtures, and organic art installation-esque touches like…a denuded tree. Whatever, it works. Feast on locally-sourced dishes like a Crispy Goat Cheese Salad, Hand-Cut Buffalo Tartare, Wood-Roasted Bone Marrow with Braised Oxtail, and decadent sides like Polenta Fries.

8. Yuki Yama Sushi

Copy Link
586 Main Street
Park City, UT 84060
(435) 649-6293
Visit Website

What happens when you combine the best sushi in town with truly epic service? You get this place. We all love a bar or eatery where everybody knows our name, even if we’re only in town for three days. Here, the staff, from receptionist and sushi chefs to servers (if you get the guy channeling Elvis Costello, score!) will know yours, and it’s totally genuine. Sit in the front where the action is, at one of the high bar tables or the sushi bar, and slurp up the rich, savory Pork Ramen (layered with thick slices of meat capped with burnished cracklings), or binge on house specialty rolls like the Executive (Tempura Shrimp, Avocado, and Cilantro, Maguro, Lime, Eel Sauce, and Habanero), or the Bruce Lee Roy (Spicy Tombo, Avocado, Shishito Pepper, Wagyu Beef, Truffle Garlic Ponzu, Crispy Shallots, and Black Sea Salt). Don’t forget “teasers” like the Goat Cheese Tuna Tataki, or sizzling hot plates like broiled, Miso-Marinated Black Cod.

9. Collie's Sports Bar & Grill

Copy Link
738 Main Street
Park City, UT 84060
(435) 649-0888

Park City’s newest watering hole has plenty of TV’s, tasty wings, beer, and nearby lift access. Avail yourself of delicious bar snacks like “Mixed Greens,” aka fried pickles and green beans, Chips and Queso, and Green Chile Cheese Fries. Then tackle the badass burger list- do you want yours smothered with jalapenos and cream cheese (“Hidden Splendor”), applewood smoked bacon, onion strings, and Collie’s bbq sauce (“Powder Keg”), or veggie (“Fool’s Gold”)? Perhaps you’ll spring for the “Widowmaker” (bacon, cheddar, hash browns, egg). That sound you just heard? Those were your arteries hardening.

10. Davanza's

Copy Link
690 Park Ave.
Park City, UT 84060
(435) 649-2222

What’s not to love about a funky, oddly-shaped, timeworn food shack whose décor consists of thousands of vintage beer cans stacked up to the ceiling? Not much, and when you add affordable sandwiches (think Meatball Parm, Crispy Buffalo Chicken, and Philly Cheesesteak), pizza, burgers, and (random, we admit), “handmade, street-style” tacos, you have a drunk’s paradise. The kids will love it too- just keep ‘em off the sauce- this is Utah, after all.

11. High West Distillery & Saloon

Copy Link
703 Park Ave.
Park City, UT 84060
(435) 649-8300
Visit Website

Holy hell, this award-winning distillery known primarily for its small batch whiskies has become the belle of Park City, liquor laws be damned. A reservation for dinner is a must, but you can kill time in the adjacent Saloon drinking lethal libations like the Rusty Miner (HW’s Double Rye! and Campfire whiskies, Drambuie, and flamed orange peel) or Bandit Queen (Double Rye!, Ruby Port, Allspice Dram, Punt e Mes, and fresh lemon juice). There are also flights and an extensive list of other, non-house spirits for you to choose from. For lunch, consider the Skier’s Special (Grilled Cheese, BLT, Pulled Pork, Smoked Tri-tip, or Bison Pastrami, with roasted tomato soup and a green salad for just $16 smackers, 11am-4pm), or the fondue with fingerling potatoes and Granny Smith apples. Dinner means hearty Western-inflected fare like Whiskey Braised Short Rubs and Black Cod with a Red Cabbage Slaw. You’ll stumble out of here, but in the best way possible.

12. Atticus Coffee, Books and Teahouse

This sweet little indie book store/coffeehouse/tearoom is a favorite with locals, not least of which because the baristas, beans, baked goods and breakfast bagels are awesome. The emphasis on fresh and healthy stuff carries over to lunch, which features tasty wraps, salads, sandwiches, and smoothies. Cozy armchairs and couches make snacking on the slow fun; be sure to check out the great selections on ski town lifestyle and snow stuff in the “outdoor recreation” section.

How this dive slips under the radar on “best of” and “Park City nightlife” lists is a mystery. Curbed Ski found it by accident, located as it is inside a random building/parking garage. But what a find! If your idea of a good time is shooting the shit with local weirdos, watching live bands play Cheap Trick covers, and trading barbs with a strapping bartender who goes by the name of Sasquatch (don’t let the long hair, tats, and foot-long braided beard fool you; this guy’s a sweetheart), you’re going to want to call this place home. While you’re there, partake in the extensive house draft and global beer menu, which includes esoteric offerings up to 13.2% ABV (no easy feat in Utah), and shoot some stick. FYI: Utitlitarian greasy hangover breakfast classics are served all day.

Local and visitors love this wood-fired pizza joint for its no-muss, no-fuss yet friendly atmosphere. There are other niceties, like housemade meatballs, piadine, simple pasta dishes, a great kids’ menu…even gluten-free stuff. This is the place to go when you want to keep it short and sweet after a long one on the slopes, or when the kids are burning out.

15. El Chubasco

1890 Bonanza Dr, #115
Park City, UT 84060

While some may hate on slightly white-boy (read: lard-free) versions of Mexican classics, this clean, friendly joint is beloved by locals of all stripes. It’s just as popular with visitors, who come for the bomber-size Smothered Burritos, Chile Rellenos, Tacos, and Specialty Plates (Mole, Machaca, Enchiladas are but a few). All of that pales, however, in the face of the giant Salsa Bar, packed with all manner of housemade condiments, including charred jalapenos, escabeche, mole, and spicy crema. Love.

16. Silver Star Café

At the base of the Silver Star chairlift, this inviting cafe serves up delicious burgers (try the Silver Star or the Northwest Burger), a great Chipotle BBQ Pulled Pork Wrap, and tasty salads. A great place to wait out a lift wind-delay in Park City.

17. Cloud Dine at the Canyons Resort

Copy Link
103 White Pine Canyon Rd
Park City, UT 84098

This on-mountain eatery offers better than the standard ski co glop in a convenient location at the Canyons. Fuel up on sandwiches like the Caribbean Pulled Pork Sliders with Spicy Tropical Slaw or a Warm Beef Dip with Horseradish Crème, and formulate your post-lunch plan of action while admiring the view from atop your perch on Dream Peak.

18. Whole Foods Market

Yeah, yeah, it’s a grocery store, but few ski towns are lucky to have one that sells anything besides withered produce and overpriced processed crap. Park City has two great groceries (Fresh Market, in town, is like a gloriously-reinvented Safeway). Whether you’re doing the condo thing or enjoy the ease (and health) of DIY, you’ll still spend less on a meal here than you will at most restaurants in town.
