This established, family-run restaurant is the place to go for fine dining in an upscale, yet hip, setting. The 22-year-old business has recently joined forces with Alpine Distilling to provide a new twist on your dining experience. Notice the tin-pressed ceiling in the historic building that once housed a department store as you take a front-row seat to the action on Main Street. Start with a signature cocktail or a bottle from the Wine Spectator-awarded list. A diverse menu of traditionally prepared, classic and playful cuisine is now crafted for family dining and sharing plates. Menu items reflect the flavors of alpine regions such as garden, valley and fjord. The Utah red trout entrée is a local favorite, but there is something for everyone on the menu, including gluten-free options. For a truly unique experience, book a tasting in the Alpine Distilling tasting room where you can custom craft your own signature gin to enjoy with your meal.
With a warm atmosphere (and cold fish), Flying Sumo has become a favorite sushi spot for both Park City locals and tourists. Most importantly, it’s known for its great Japanese food with fresh fish and quality ingredients, mixed with home cooking and reasonable prices. Recently renovated, the restaurant is both modern and playful, with an origami paper crane chandelier and black-and-white photos of sumo wrestlers covering the walls. There is a long, welcoming sushi bar and cozy tables for optimal sushi sharing. The menu features nigiri, sashimi, uramaki, hosomaki and specialty rolls as well as kitchen specials, like the teriyaki bowl, Korean beef barbecue and even some options for the little sumos, including popcorn shrimp and fish and chips.
A lively exhibition kitchen, two-sided stone fireplace and stunning views create an inviting backdrop for superb cuisine at J&G Grill, a restaurant concept by chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Chef de Cuisine Rachel Wiener creates each dish with the highest-quality meats and freshest local produce and fish available in the market. Winner of AAA’s coveted Four Diamond award and recipient of Wine Spectator’s Best of Award of Excellence, J&G Grill features the largest wine collection in Utah, with over 1,000 different labels and more than 13,000 bottles. The restaurant offers a casual yet upscale experience that is equally well-suited for a business gathering, a group of friends, an intimate supper or a family night out. Favorites on the menu include the tuna tartare, which is caught and flown in the very same day, and the black truffle pizza with creamy fontina cheese.
Named for its unobstructed views across the local Wasatch and Uinta mountain ranges, the casual Vista Lounge and Terrace is an authentic mountain great room serving classics such as fondue, cheese, charcuterie, shellfish, desserts, handcrafted cocktails and fine wines by the glass, both afternoons and evenings. Guests, residents and locals alike gather on the fire-warmed terrace for a taste of awe-inspiring views and fresh mountain air. And nightly live music creates a relaxing conclusion to each day of play. – See more at: http://www.visitparkcity.com/listings/Vista-Lounge-at-Montage-Deer-Valley/12150/123/#sthash.3LY8oxRQ.dpuf
