Park City - Just one dinner

OK, I am coming to Utah for a conference in SLC. But, I am headed to Park City area for one day. I have done some research and some reading on here. Will probably just wander around and wing it for a light lunch, but want to do a great dinner that night with my friend who is joining me. I am debating between these places, which should I go to?
- The Mariposa
- Purple Sage
- The Tree Room
- The Glitretind
- Blind Dog Grill

  1. The Tree Room is a bit of a drive from Park City ... but I quite like it. If you're up for a drive, then I'd go for that.

    Otherwise, I'd go Blind Dog Grill (good meat loaf and sushi in the same place, go fig), Glitretind, or the Mariposa.

    1. My choice would be the Mariposa. We've never been disappointed when we're out that way.

      1. If you are going to be in Park City before Deer Valley Resort opens for the ski season, The Mariposa can't be one of your choices. I believe DV is opening on 12/2 this year.
        I would choose between The Mariposa and The Glitretind. The atmosphere of each is different. Mariposa is a little dark and quiet while Glitretind is brighter and warm. I have enjoyed my dinners at Glitretind more than the ones I've had at Mariposa. The food was excellent at both, but the entire experience and atmosphere just felt better at Glitretind. If you want wine, The Glitretind is a good place to go. A good selection of wines from around the world with a wide price range. I've never been steered wrong with recommendations from Cara, the sommelier. Let her know what you like, what you are having for dinner, and your price range.

        1. thanks for the information about mariposa. any more input?

          1. Blind Dog is fabulous!! I've had 3 amazing dinners there. Check out their website for more menu info and even a recipe for their famous upscale meatloaf.

            Tree Room worth the drive from Park Redford's Sundance resort. His Park City restaurant, Zoom, is right on main street.
