Restaurants- I have bolded and asterisked ones that are especially notable tourist experiences, but there are so many good restaurants in Park City. Be aware that with Sundance starting on Friday, it may be hard to accommodate large groups at any popular restaurant. Reserve early:

*Glitretind Restaurant: Although open Breakfast, lunch and Dinner, the Sunday Jazz brunch is a great experience. This extravagant spread features traditional breakfast items along with a carving station, several hot entrées, a variety of salads and starches, shrimp, crab claws, salmon, fresh fruit, fresh crêpes, omelets and house-made pastries. Will be busy with Sundance. Make reservations now!

*High West Distillery: An award-winning distillery known for small-batch whiskies, High West is the hottest spot in Park City. A reservation for dinner is a must, but you can kill time in the adjacent Saloon drinking killer cocktails like the Marooned Miner, a mix of rye whiskey, rum, creme de cacao, and blueberry cardamom bitters. Or opt for a flight of four tastings, then tuck in to comfort food like elk chili, bison short ribs, and chicken schnitzel.They also offer a Distillery tour by appointment/reservation.

*J&G Grill: A comfortable yet elegant hideaway featuring curated selection of simply grilled preparations accompanied by bold condiments. The restaurant is located at the top of a mountain at Deer Valley. Park or Valet at the St. Regis Deer Valley, then ride a funicular up. Try the signature 7452 Mary: High West 7000 Vodka, topped with a wasabi-celery espuma, cayenne pepper, and black lava salt. The funicular is cool for dinner, but the view is awesome during the day. Pop up here for a drink and viewing skiiers.

Riverhorse on Main: This sophisticated-but-unstuffy sanctuary on Main Street offers big-city style and a welcoming ski-town attitude. Sit upstairs at the first-come, first-served bar, or snag a reservation for the brick-walled dining room that boasts blown-glass light fixtures overhead. The menu offers a rotating cast of locally sourced dishes like buffalo short rib and rainbow trout. Can’t score a table? Head to the more casual, cafe-market sister restaurant Riverhorse Provisions for wraps, salads, and smoked meats.

The Farm: Located in the heart of Canyons Resort Village, the Farm stays true to its name by serving locally sourced ingredients from farms and artisans throughout Utah. Enjoy a top-notch view of the ski slopes and tuck into sustainably raised meats like short rib or beef cheeks.  We’ll  arrange a group dinner on Thursday night here.

Versante: Located inside the recently renovated Park City Peaks Hotel, Versante Hearth + Bar is a local’s favorite for affordable pizza and fresh pastas. It’s also a top spot for brunch thanks to savory egg hashes, breakfast sandwiches, and gooey cinnamon rolls.

Cortona Italian Cafe: Don’t let Cortona’s off-the-beaten-path location — a few minutes outside of town in a strip mall — deter you; it’s the go-to spot for homemade pasta (think clouds of gnocchi and rich lamb bolognese) and standout gelato. Choose this restaurant on your way into or out of town, or use it as a solid option for dinner after skiing Canyons Resort.

Five5eeds: If you’re sick of the hotel breakfast, Five5eeds has you covered with soul-warming coffee (it’s Australian, of course), and hipster-friendly staples like grain bowls and avocado toast. A go-to spot for filling food that won’t leave you feeling awful.

Twisted Fern:
This recently opened New American spot in north Park City is a chef-owned restaurant that’s doing ingredient-driven dining right. Adam Ross’s impeccable food is a bit under the radar thanks to its strip-mall location, but we promise you’ll be back again and again for starters like blackened octopus and mains like chicken-fried portobello, cavatelli pasta, and bone-in short ribs.

El Chubasco: Condiment lovers, this one’s for you: At El Chubasco, more than 20 varieties of salsa — made daily — are perfect for pouring over huge smothered burritos, chile rellenos, tacos, enchiladas, and more. And it’s not just salsa — don’t miss other homemade condiments like charred jalapenos, escabeche, mole, and spicy crema.

Boneyard Saloon
& Wine Dive
: Located in an old lumberyard just north of downtown, this rustic gastropub serves up expert comfort food like steaks, ribs, burgers, and fries. Hit up the rooftop bar for large-screen TVs and the Wine Dive for 16 wines on tap.

Silver Star
Café
: At the base of Park City Mountain Resort’s Silver Star chairlift, this inviting rustic cafe serves up from-scratch food like delicious burgers, a
tender French dip sandwich, and fresh salads. Silver Star is a top lunch spot to wait out a lift wind delay when you’re skiing Park City Mountain Resort, or a low-key dinner option away from the bustle of Main Street.

Vinto Pizzeria: Locals and visitors alike love this wood-fired pizza joint for its no-muss, no-fuss but still friendly atmosphere — especially when paired with housemade meatballs, piadine, simple pasta dishes, and gluten-free options. This is the place to go to keep it short and sweet after a long one on the slopes, or when the kids are burning out.

Cloud Dine: This recently renovated on-mountain restaurant offers food better than what can be found at the average ski co, served up in a convenient location at the Canyons. The new building has 316 seats and a large outdoor deck, located at the top of DreamCatcher and Dreamscape lifts. Fuel up on sandwiches, healthy salads, and warm flatbreads, then formulate the post-lunch plan of action while admiring the view from atop Dream Peak.

Old Town Cellars: This recently opened winery on Main Street is proving that you don’t have to be near the vines to have delicious wine. Sourcing labels from top regions throughout the country, Old Town blends and bottles on-site to offer a comfortable, après-ski setting. Don’t miss the charcuterie boards that pair with the flights.

Harvest: Lovers of avocado toast and those with vegan or gluten-free preferences will love Harvest, a brightly lit, comfortable cafe serving soups, grain bowls, smoothies, and locally roasted coffee. The all-day menu is heavy on breakfast offerings, but don’t miss the chicken salad and chili con carne for a heartier lunch.

The Bridge Cafe and Grill: Located adjacent to Park City Mountain’s Town Lift with a great outdoor patio, the Bridge Cafe offers diner fare with a Brazilian twist. The traditional all-day breakfast is solid, and lunch offerings like the Brazuca steak sandwich with a fried egg, ham, and Swiss cheese make for a tasty, convenient, and filling option just steps from downtown.

710 Bodega Tapas And Wine: Ski towns can be an overload of New American food, so the Spanish-inspired 710 Bodega is a breath of fresh air. Grab a glass of red (or the house sangria) and order tapas like the fried Brie bites with quince paste, Brussels sprouts with bacon, and beef and pork albondigas topped with manchego cheese.

Atticus Coffee, Books & Teahouse: Come to Atticus for the well-priced lattes, stay for the friendly baristas and freshly baked goods. In this part indie book store, part coffeehouse, the emphasis on fresh and healthy fare carries over to lunch, which features wraps, salads, sandwiches, and smoothies. Cozy armchairs and couches dot the space, so curl up and let the snow fall.

Davanza’s: The decor at this locals’ hangout consists of thousands of vintage beer cans stacked up to the ceiling, and the comfort-classic food menu includes sandwiches (think meatball Parmesan, crispy Buffalo chicken, and Philly cheesesteak), pizza, and burgers. The no-frills joint will also keep the kids happy, but don’t come here if you’re looking for fine dining. This is quick and casual at its best.

Handle: Step into the Handle dining room to find natural woods, an open kitchen, and a New American menu heavy on the share plates. And while modern comfort food is the go-to across this city, Handle shines with a strong cocktail program and items like cauliflower in Buffalo hot wing sauce and smoked sausage with cider-braised purple cabbage.

Yuki Yama Sushi: Start with the shishito peppers or the gyoza, then dive into everything from savory pork ramen to well-composed sushi rolls. Yuki Yama does it all well, and guests can choose to sit at the high-top bar tables, the sushi bar, or the traditional tatami room.

Fletcher’s: It’s all about the share plates at Fletcher’s, located on Main Street with a bright dining room and cozy lounge. Start with the cheddar chive biscuits — don’t forget the bacon jam — and then tuck into larger entrees like buffalo with blue cheese fondue. For dessert, the warm butter cake with fresh berries is an instant classic.

No Name Saloon & Grill: Don’t expect fancy when you come to No Name. Instead, grab a pint and gawk at everything from the brick barrel-vault ceiling to the mix of Christmas lights, taxidermy, rusty outboard motors, and old sleds thrown up on the wall. Sure, it’s crowded and noisy, but classics like the artichoke jalapeno dip and buffalo burgers go down just fine with a cheap beer or two. Plus, the people watching is epic.

Deer Valley Grocery Café: Located in the Deer Valley Plaza in Snow Park, this tiny space turns out house-made baked goods and breads. For breakfast, get challah French toast with fruit compote or try the (also house-made) yogurt with deer valley granola. Breakfast sandwiches make way for creative lunchtime options like the tandoori chicken curry wrap, roasted pork loin baguette, and the stalwart grilled three-cheese. Don’t forget to pick up some local specialty foods to go on the way out.

Firewood: Have a craving for wood-fired meats and cocktails? Head to notable chef John Murko’s Main Street restaurant, Firewood. Eating rillettes, coal-roasted carrots, and elk is only half the fun: The restaurant’s giant wood-fire grill is set behind antique windows so you can spy all of the action in the kitchen.

Reef’s Restaurant: Now located at Deer Valley Resort, this modern Mediterranean restaurant is worth the trek up the hill just to sample something different from the traditional ski town fare. You’ll find inspiring Middle Eastern flavors in hummus, baba ghanoush, and falafel, as well as surprising takes on schnitzel, salmon, and filet mignon with Polish dumplings.

McDonald’s: Irish-German fusion cuisine from Master Chef Ronáld features hamburger sandwiches, pommes frites, and nuggets de poulet. Has a children’s menu as well.
