Park City’s newest downtown dining and gathering experience, Courchevel Bistro by Talisker Club comes to Main Street in Park City. The venue features bistro-style dining, daily brunch, après ski as well as a cafe-bakery and coffee-dessert bar all in one. You might imagine that you’re in the northern French Alps rather than the mountains of Utah, while you dine on risotto de crozete or braised chicken coq au vin. Executive Chef Clement Gelas has brought the flavors of his home country of France to the heart of Park City. Using only the freshest local ingredients, Courchevel Bistro presents cuisine that is every part the Rhone Valley, only transported across the world and reimagined for your enjoyment. Adjacent to the bistro, the cafe-bakery services your caffeine cravings morning, noon and night — a perfect pairing with the freshly baked breads and pastries. Stop a moment to savor Park City life at Courchevel Bistro.
Looking for a classic sushi restaurant with both tradition and cutting-edge, Japanese-inspired small plates that are perfect for sharing? Yuki Yama is just the place. The Main Street restaurant is a staple for locals, who often dine at the sushi bar, and a treat for visitors in town. Their traditional tatami room is great for a party of up to 12 guests, or put yourself in the hands of any of their talented chefs and ask for an omakase chef’s-choice style of dining that can be paired with an abundance of specialty sakes. If you are craving a filling meal, try any of the house-made ramens, which take more than a day to develop their rich flavors. While the restaurant specializes in melding exotic flavors and ingredients — like sustainably farmed bluefin tuna and live geoduck clam — traditional dishes such as nigiri and sashimi plates, tempura and a variety of gyoza are a great way for less adventurous diners to enjoy Yuki Yama’s diverse menu.
This traditional family-owned-and-operated Italian restaurant serves authentic favorites in a cozy, intimate atmosphere. Run by Paola Bello and chef Nicholas Smurthwaite, Buona Vita brings you a tradition of fresh Italian cuisine to the heart of Park City. Loyal patrons come for signature dishes, such as the caprese with fresh buffalo mozzarella and the Alla Nona — spicy sausage ravioli reminiscent of a recipe from an Italian grandmother. Of course, the standout of the menu is some of the finest and heartiest pasta dishes in town, with scratch-made sauces. The extensive menu offers something for everyone, from pizzas to gluten-free options. A broad wine list accompanies this home-style cuisine, and with friendly service you will leave feeling like part of the family.
Tapas are popular for a good reason. They always encourage socializing, because the focus is not on a full meal set before you but rather 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.
With great steaks that are comfortably priced, Butcher’s Chop House by Diversified Bars & Restaurants has something for everyone in their warm, classic steakhouse setting. In addition to steaks, the family-friendly restaurant features steaks, chops, seafood, pasta, a kids’ menu and more. All items on the Butcher’s block include a choice of two sides. Try the prime rib, a locals’ favorite. The beautifully finished cherry wood bar side boasts one of the finest wine lists and liquor displays in Utah. Also, watch all of your favorite prime-time sporting events on the 166-inch-screen TV. Butcher’s is eating and drinking every day and night — their late-night menu offers patrons convenient Main Street eats after 10 p.m. From fish tacos to buffalo chicken dip, this exciting menu will surely satisfy late-night cravings (must be 21+ on the bar side).
New owners Grace McGowan and Katie Babcock have taken their combined years of fine dining experience and used it to elevate this 30+ year old Park City staple. The all new menu specializes in breakfast served all day, gourmet sandwiches, house-made soups, sides and salads, as well as locally sourced sweets and pastries. From tuna salad with Greek yogurt and capers to house-made roast beef and hickory smoked brisket, Main St. Deli & Eatery is using the best ingredients to create delicious, approachable and affordable meals. Vegetarian and vegan options are always available. Group and kid friendly, they also offer many grab-and-go, toiletry and convenience items.
Located directly at the bottom of the Town Lift on Main Street, The Bridge Cafe & Grill just celebrated their 10th anniversary. Enjoy the open patio with umbrellas, surrounded by flowers and stunning views of the mountain — and good luck trying to not stay there all day. But luckily, if you’re a late riser (or just enjoy breakfast at all hours of the day), it serves breakfast all day. Breakfast includes classics like made-to-order omelets, eggs Benedict and a cure-all breakfast burrito. The rest of the menu features Brazilian-inspired twists on classic dishes sure to satisfy the senses as much as the ambience does. Try the house-favorite Camarao a Brazuca, Brazilian sautéed shrimp, or the national drink of Brazil, the Caipirinha, which is impossibly refreshing and tastes as if lemonade and a mojito had a love child. Whether your agenda is a scenic chair lift ride or a Main Street stroll, The Bridge Cafe is the perfect stop.
