    Are you going for the SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL? If so, try and get yourself invited to some private parties where the food and wine are above average. Park City is not London, but their restaurants serve well-prepared dishes. The best thing is to ask a local when you get there. They may know some out-of-the-way place in the area no one knows about and you will enjoy it. I was in Park City many times and each time I dined I enjoyed it. I can't remember the names of the restaurants, though. Sorry. It was 10 years ago.

    1. Hi Thira-

      Please re-post your query on the Southwest board, where Utah chow is discussed. We will be removing the thread here.


      1. We've lived here a year and like to eat out but have yet to find a restaurant in Park City worth revisiting given the resort town prices. However, we eat at Tarahumara and Galleria, both in Midway, about once a week. Tarahumara has amazing fresh, pure Mexican food and margarita's not poured by a local Mormon. Galleria has tasty thin crust pizza and great salads. The staff are nice and relaxed at both places. Worth the 20 minute drive.

        1. I too live in PC and as an ex New Yorker food here is tough, lots of over priced mediocore at best restaurants, we usually head to SLC for dinner out. Setto Bello great authentic Napolitano wood fired pizza, Takashi great sushi, but if you are staying in PC try 350 Main Street and stay away from all of the Bill White reataurants way over rated and over priced and I have yet to have a good meal at any of his establishments in the 12 yrs I have lived hear. Now having said that they are all beautifully decorated but you did say you were looking for good eats! Happy trails : ) tish

            You nailed it about the Bill White group. That's probably why he wants to unload his business. Of all of the mountain resort towns I have visited, Park City has the most overpriced, mediocre (and worse) restaurant food. If I can get a great meal in Jackson, Sun Valley, Santa Fe, Big Sky, Jackson, Aspen, Vail, Telluride, and the rest, why not in Park City, when SLC has innumerable daily flights from both coasts and Hawaii, and a non-stop from Tokyo? I don't think Takashi is very good, but each to his own.

          2. I agree, Bill White's restaurants are over rated. I worked in the hospitality industry in Park City for 3 years and my favorites were two family owned restaurants on Main Street: Purple Sage and Cafe Terigo. Also, anything at Deer Valley is amazing.
