A Foodie’s Guide to Park City
How to make the most of a day in Park City
Park City, Utah, is a unique mountain town that offers plenty beyond shredding through fresh powder – including a surprisingly diverse range of restaurants and bars. Below, how to eat and drink your way through Park City like a local in 24 hours.
Owned by an Australian couple who missed their “brekkies” from home, Five5eeds is a light-filled nook chicly accented with wood, black seating, and plenty of plants. The coffee is bold, thanks to Coffee Mio beans from Melbourne, and the plates are artfully composed and ingredient driven (think vegetarian benedicts, hotcakes, and breakfast panna cottas).
In addition to being one of the country’s most recognized whiskey distilleries, High West also has a lively saloon turning out hearty, comforting cuisine that pairs beautifully with its spirits. There’s something for every type of diner, from vegetarian hatch chile verde to a belt-buckling Double R Ranch New York Strip Steak. Wash everything down with a refreshing High West Lemonade.
Perched at the end of historic Main Street – which still charmingly resembles an old silver mining town – is where you’ll discover Atticus Coffee, Books & Teahouse. Snap out of the midday doldrums with a bracing mug of coffee or a healthful smoothie.
Don’t be fooled by its surprising location in a strip mall, because Cortona Italian Cafe is a gem of a restaurant. It seats only 40, and is cash-only, but the silky pastas – all made with imported, non-GMO Italian flour – more than make up for any inconvenience. (The fettuccini and gnocchi are especially popular). And don’t forget to end your meal on a sweet note with some of the house made gelato.
