Tucked amid the Wasatch mountain range between Deer Valley Resort, Park City Mountain Resort and Utah Olympic Park, Park City is renowned for its winter-sports. But the city is also celebrated for its sparkling arts and culture, having been the setting for Sundance Film Festival since 1981, as well as becoming increasingly known for its burgeoning dining scene and collection of world-class restaurants. To rub shoulders with the key players of the film industry over the festival period, follow our guide to the most talked about restaurants in town.
Main Street lies at the heart of Park City, so many of the town’s restaurants sit within its vicinity. Riverhorse on Main is one of the most established restaurants here, and considered one of the stand-out eateries across the United States, having been awarded by Forbes Travel Guide over 16 successive years, with the resounding approval of restaurant critics. Diners come here to try the restaurant’s eclectic American plates utilizing seasonal ingredients; try the macadamia nut crusted Alaskan halibut, with one of the eatery’s fine wines.
Tupelo Park City is one of Main Street’s most recent additions, and also one of the most highly regarded. In this stylish, light-filled space, New American cuisine with global influence incorporates sustainably sourced ingredients from artisanal producers. Choose between wholesome plates such as Berkshire pork chop, Niman Ranch sirloin, and Ahi tuna steak. And, during the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, Tupelo will be offering a special festival menu.
