A day in Park City: Three meals you won’t soon forget
Any time of year is a good time to eat in Park City, Utah, said John Briley in The Washington Post. Though the old mining town turned ski mecca offers plenty of the “eat-and-get-back-out-there” fare that many people want when the slopes are open, the local dining options “run the international gamut,” because passionate young chefs and restaurateurs have been lured in by the same features that attract vacationers and weekenders, including the 400 miles of hiking trails in the surrounding Wasatch Range.
Riverhorse Provisions Restaurateur Seth Adams recently converted a century-old boarding house for miners to create this café and market, where the breakfast best-seller is an egg, spinach, and sausage wrap. But if you can linger, you should try the breakfast poutine or the brisket hash with poached egg and polenta bites. 221 Main St., (435) 649-0799
Silver Star Cafe At midday, grab a seat on the patio for 25-mile views to the Uinta Mountains, or settle into the dining room, which resembles “a really hip grandma’s kitchen”—with exposed beams, farmhouse shelving, and a guitar, hanging on the wall, that anyone is allowed to play. “Top lunch choices include pizza topped with whole clams and white sauce, and seared-trout salad.” 1825 Three Kings Drive, (435) 655-3456
The Farm Come in the mood for a splurge, and German chef Manny Rozehnal will deliver. Start with a charcuterie board and a bowl of oxtail onion soup, then choose between a lamb rack with a chickpea ragout or the herbed spaetzle with chanterelles and caramelized onions. The 200-bottle wine list is in play both in the “refined-yet-rustic” dining room and on the slopeside patio. 4000 Canyons Resort Drive, (435) 615-8080
