Anyone who has a vegan or vegetarian in the mix should head straight to 501 On Main. The menu, which has plenty of options for meat lovers, too, offers healthy, seasonal dishes. The cozy atmosphere houses a friendly staff, who welcome you to relax for a lighter meal. Fresh salads, soups and dishes all highlight local produce, and the menu offers classic options like fresh veggie risotto (which is a house favorite) and steak and blue cheese salad. Don’t be afraid to indulge in the wine, which has no sulfites added and is from sustainable vineyards. 501 can easily accommodate gluten-free diners as well. The restaurant offers two levels for dining in an airy, light space as well as a deck overlooking Main Street. If you can, save room for dessert. The brownie sundae is amazing and a great treat after a satisfying meal.
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.
