Park City welcomes skiers and snowboarders year after year. While the town’s known for its powdery slopes, its restaurant scene is just as noteworthy. Journalist Amber Gibson shares 4 Park City restaurants to dine at during your next Utah winter vacation.
It’s a 20-minute drive outside downtown Park City, but a visit to High West Distillery between the Wasatch and Uinta mountains is certainly worth it for whiskey lovers. After touring the copper stills, grab a table at the adjacent restaurant, with a rusted metal and dark wood design inspired by Park City’s mining heritage. Pair bison burgers and pozole with barrel-aged cocktails and Rocky Mountain views.
Brand new this winter, the completely clear champagne house at St. Regis Deer Valley features a 30-foot long wooden bar, massive deck with daily live music and a VIP area for bottle service with custom-made wooden furniture. Ski right up from Deer Hollow Run and enjoy bubbles paired with fresh shucked oysters or warm up with a piping hot bowl of clam chowder.
Located in Park City’s renovated Masonic Hall on the busiest stretch of Main Street, Riverhorse on Main has a buzzy, urban vibe with regular live music accompanying elevated American comfort food like the trio of wild game that’s one of chef/owner Seth Adams’ signature dishes. Natural light streams in from the atrium skylights and 10 slender aspen trees add outdoor elegance with their beautiful white bark.
Tupelo’s brand-new location recreates the atmosphere of a Southern manor library, with warm woods and rich leather. A wrap-around deck offers plentiful outdoor dining in warmer months and in winter.
