Park City restaurants?

I'm driving west on interstate 80 and plan to spend one night in Park City. Any chowhound recommendations for a delicious, fun place for dinner in Park City appropriate for a solo diner?

Thanks very much.

      enbell: any type of cuisine; any price point; alcohol -- definitely yes.

        Here are some fun ones, there are many mre though... (just a heads up, many places will not have liquor, all will have lower % alcohol in their beer).

          He won't toot his own horn, so I'll do it for him. This is a great resource; definitely follow his lead over mine!

            I never really understand why people warn about the lower alcohol content of beer here. I mean, beer up here at 7000 ft will pack a wallop to someone used to living at a lower altitude. Plus, many of the beers from Utah have won medals at beer tastings and were NOT in a "lower alcohol" category.
            Up here in Park City, I don't think I've gone into a restaurant in a long time that didn't have a liquor license, other than some extremely casual places. I think it's more the exception than the rule up here to not have a license.
            If you are going to be in PC the first weekend of August, be aware that it is Arts Festival weekend. You won't be able to drive up Main Street, as that is where all the stalls are set up. You'll have to park at the ski resort or in Prospector Square and take the bus. I'd recommend parking the car wherever you stay and take the bus, anyway.

      2. Fun and casual, I'd recommend going to Squatter's Road House. Wide varieties of menu items, good selection of locally brewed beer on tap. I eat there frequently as a solo.
        Another place is Zoom. They have a dining bar at the kitchen counters. I haven't been there for awhile, but it's always been good.
        If you like sushi, try Sushi Maru. Mikey does good sushi! He is one of the original people doing sushi in town, starting at Ichiban (now in SLC). He has had a following wherever he's worked. When he finally was able to open his own place, he didn't need any advertising - he had built in clientele.
