There’s something wonderful and exotic about vacation food. It’s seemingly not that much different than the food you eat every day, until you taste that first bite and realize that THIS is the best taste of all. For a small mountain town, Park City’s food repertoire is a sophisticated mingling of flavors and style and our guide for where to eat in Park City during your epicurean journey promises to make this vacation the sweetest you’ve ever experienced.
Day 1: The Most Important Meal of the Day
Vacation activities can use up a lot of energy, so following the maxim about breakfast being the most important meal of the day, you’ll start your journey with a visit to our favorite breakfast spot, The Eating Establishment, located at 317 Main Street. Open since 1972, there’s a reason this place has been around for so long; the food is delicious, and after renovations in 2017 included the addition of a full bar, we now consider it absolutely perfect!
After a Hearty Breakfast
The Angus Steak and Egg breakfast you just devoured was delicious to the last crumb, but now you are feeling like you want to crawl back in bed and take a nice long nap! Although our beds are comfortable, you know you want to explore more of what Park City has to offer, so why not take a walk instead? And if that walk happens to involve stopping in a few stores along the way, all the better! The light of a crystal chandelier draws you towards Gorsuch, 355 Main Street, and their selection of ski gear and upscale women clothing invites you inside to take a closer peek. Other stores such as Pine (323 Main Street), Changing Hands (580 Main Street), and Park City Jewelers (430 Main Street) will keep your attention until the inconvenient grumble of a hungry stomach tells you it is once again time to eat!
Day 2: Where To Eat In Park City? Burgers and Brews
Nothing goes better with a thick and juicy burger than an icy cold beer, and with breweries rising in popularity, you can be sure that Park City is on trend. The Wasatch Brew Pub, found at 250 Main Street, is known throughout the state for offering the best burgers and an extensive selection of craft beers.
Through the Canyons
The second day of any adventure is always the most exciting, as you truly begin to explore everything the town has to offer! Winter visitors may start with a visit to Park City Sleigh Rides and the chance to feel as if they are living out a fairytale ending of a Dicken’s novel! Lasting about 25 minutes and leading you across the starkly beautiful snow-covered Utah landscape, this adventure is both romantic and fun for the whole family; it just depends on your situation which type of ride you will have!
Day 3: Après Ski? Après Vous!
After a long day of fun, you’ll find yourself looking forward to a little après ski action, and the Brass Tag is the direction in which you want to go. Serving the drinks that are guaranteed to warm even the coldest corners of your soul, their bar snacks will chase away the growls in your stomach while still leaving room for a nice dinner later on in the evening.
Learning Something New
You’ve been coming to Park City for years, your favorite skis in tow, spending every minute of every day riding up the ski lift and then gliding down the slopes until you could easily perform with your eyes shut. Why not take one day and do it differently, without having to leave your favorite playground! Stop by Park City Sport – Ski and Snowboard Rentals, check out their selection of snowboards, and follow it up with lessons on Park City Mountain! We would never ask you to leave the slopes but learning something new will keep you young!
Day 4: Affairs of the Heart
That special someone in your life has loyally stood by your side in lean times and in times of abundance and deserves that special dinner that will be remembered forever. On the 4th night of your epicurean journey to Park City, we’ve sought out the most romantic restaurant in town: Butcher’s Steak House is where the flames of your heart will be ignited. Located at 751 Lower Main Street, if you find yourself in Park City over the summer, the patio is both charming and intimate and will add to the ambience of your romantic night on the town.
Dinner and a Show?
Although live theater at the Egyptian still remains shuttered, the movie theaters are open once more following COVID-19 guidelines for your safety. Make your night on the town an old-fashioned date night with a visit to the Redstone 8 Cinemas, located at 6030 N. Market Street, and enjoy some popcorn, some cuddling, and the latest blockbuster coming straight from Hollywood! Sometimes the simplest moments are the most memorable, and this after dark adventure promises to be one that truly is unforgettable!
Day 5: Sweet Tooth Sensations
Our grandmothers used to tell us that ending a meal with something sweet is nature’s way of signaling to our stomach that the meal is complete, and Windy Ridge Café will end your meal the right way. Also known for their hearty breakfasts and tasty lunch foods, it’s their chocolate crème brulee you will dream about for years to come!
Day 6: Feeling Stuffed?
As you near the end of your journey, you might be starting to feel more than a little full; we all tend to overeat on vacation, so when we are looking where to eat in Park City for tonight’s meal, we’ll stick to the small plates! 710 Bodega Tapas and Wine offers a tasty selection of small plates and an extensive wine list that will warm the cockles of your heart.
Day 7: Farewell Park City
All too soon your journey has reached its end, and on your last day, you may be tempted to stick close to home. Our homes are designed to be lived in, and today that’s just what you’ll do. Este Pizza provides Take and Bake pizzas; pop one in the oven, pour a glass of wine, and enjoy one last night in paradise! Reserve your Park City Vacation Rentals luxury escape today!
