Tapas are popular for a good reason. They always encourage socializing, because the focus is not on a full meal set before you but on the ability to share many tasty plates throughout one dinner. 710 Bodega on Main fills that void for Park City. A summer vacation to Spain inspired restaurateurs Nicholas Smurthwaite and Paola Bello to open this modern-style Spanish tapas bar that mixes traditional plates with new twists. Just steps from Main Street, this lively outpost is a superb choice for a night out, whether that’s a large gathering or an intimate date. The concept is simple: good food, drinks and great service in a relaxing setting. Favorites include clams, calamari, lamb lollipops, croquettes and the only paella in town. A healthy wine list includes several Spanish wines. The rustic and welcoming vibe is achieved through the use of wood planks and metal — it’s both hip and cozy at the same time.
