Park City has long been a part of the American cultural revolution, serving as a thriving silver mining town during the boom years, a ski resort hub for the rich, famous, and the regulars for decades, and in the early 2000s, the Winter Olympics was held here, adding to the prestige and wonder of our mountain village. It’s the history that makes us special, and Purple Sage, a local dining hotspot, makes the most of its home in a late 19th century building, serving up tasty American meals that are as a much a part of our history as the people who made this city great!
Located at 434 Main Street
The tall and narrow brick building that has been the home of the Purple Sage restaurant since 2003 has been a part of the Park City landscape since the late 1800s and is easy to find in the heart of our town. Updated more than a few times in its nearly 125 years of existence, the interior offers a sophistication not often found in old western towns. Tables topped with white cloths, stained concrete floors, and sleek shaded pendant lights are just a few examples of the charm that can be found in this local eatery. The chef and owner was born into a cooking family; his parents own another longtime favorite restaurant, Café Terigo!
