This established family-run restaurant is the place to go for fine dining in an upscale yet hip setting. 350 Main is located in a historic building that once housed a department store — notice the tin-pressed ceiling as you take a front-row seat to the action on Main Street or the open kitchen. Start with a signature cocktail or a bottle from the Wine Spectator-awarded list. Then order from a diverse menu of traditionally prepared, classic and playful cuisine locally sourced when possible. The Rocky Mountain trout entrée is a local favorite, but there is something for everyone on the menu, including gluten-free options. The space is well-suited for large groups with private dining options to intimate dining in large cozy booths. This season’s must-try is the Maine lobster cocktail featuring chef Matthew’s great-grandma’s recipe for cocktail sauce.
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.
