10 Baja Cantina

9 Cafe Terigo
Set in a brick building, this stylish restaurant attracts a fashionable crowd. Just inside the entrance is a small bar; beyond that is the dining room, where a cultivated patina is evident. Ragged yellow walls feature quotations from notable artists, and windows are ornamented with curvaceous metal cutouts. Over each table, an expressive flower is painted on fragments of found metal and wood. Lunch means gourmet salads and sandwiches, while pizzas are available all day. In the evenings, representative entrees include sauteed Utah trout, grilled flank steak, rack of lamb, smoked chicken risotto, and ravioli with butternut squash. An outdoor patio is heated during the winter, and in warmer months, is one of the most desirable destinations in town. (435-645-9555)

8 Loco Lizard Cantina
A spare, clean-lined decor with exposed ductwork, warm woods, and lizard artwork distinguishes this restaurant without resorting to kitsch or stereotype. Although it doesn't look like a typical Mexican eatery, Loco Lizard serves food that's a constant reminder of how quality ingredients and skillful preparation can revitalize old favorites. Chimichangas, burritos, and enchiladas fit the traditional bill, while shrimp or fish tacos, snapper Vera Cruz, and seafood rellenos twist the classics in a tantalizing manner. Other specialties include carnitas, chipotle chicken, Oaxacan moles, and refried beans, which benefit from the addition of epazote, Mexican cuisine's signature herb. Desserts and margaritas also contribute to the theme. (435-645-7000)

7 Stew Pot
A long-standing favorite with Park City locals, this casual eatery is known for fantastic food and satisfying portions. Soups and stews are crafted daily from fresh ingredients and are always delicious. Many patrons opt to couple them with either a sandwich or a crisp salad for the perfect lunch. Notable salad options include curried chicken, Cobb, seven vegetable, and spinach and chicken. Sandwiches are built from tuna salad, ham, turkey, and other spreads. You can also get beef, veggie, and seafood burgers or stir-fries. If you're around at dinner, look for the fresh catch, jambalaya, or the pot roast dinner, a comfort food feast.

6 Main Street Deli
For a quick bite in the midst of a busy day, this deli is a good bet. Sandwiches top the list of options, and there are so many that you're sure to find one to hit the spot. Reliable standards include the turkey club, the BLT, egg salad, and ham and Swiss. You'll also find reubens, Philly cheese steaks, gyros, bratwurst, and even liverwurst.

Soups and salads are ideal for light eaters, and if you crave something sweet, there's everything from fruit smoothies and frozen yogurt to New York cheesecake and Snickers bar pie. (435-649-1110)

5 Royal Street Cafe
Somewhat more casual than other resort restaurants, this comfortable establishment surrounds guests with wood and stone in customary mountain style. The grill serves up a variety of comfort foods and is well known for its signature burger and turkey chili. You'll also find gourmet versions of salads, sandwiches, and appetizers. Hot entrees include a grilled salmon filet glazed in honey and soy sauce or perhaps smoked baby back ribs with cilantro lime glaze. If you crave something with a Southwestern flair, make sure you don't pass up the grilled chicken, spinach, and goat cheese enchiladas. They pair earthy flavors with fresh ingredients for a taste that can't be beat. (435-645-6724, 800-424-3337)

4 Davanza's Pizzeria
Chosen by some of the area's top chefs as their favorite place to get pizza, Davanza's is a completely casual, laid-back venue. The small place sports vaulted ceilings and displays sports posters, metal advertising signs, and dozens of framed photos of its patrons. It also features a beer pyramid in one of its gables, where hundreds of beer cans are stacked on 20 shelves — and the collection's still growing. Pizzas come in three sizes, and you can customize your own pie or choose one of the standards. You can also select from burgers, hoagies, subs, and San Antonio-style tacos. Everything's available for in-house dining or take-out, and cold draft beer makes it all that much better. (435-649-2222)

3 Main Street Pizza and Noodle
A cheery restaurant with bright yellow walls, hanging greenery, and an open kitchen greets diners at this casual eatery. White lights sway from strands overhead, adding a festive touch to the already-fun establishment. Pizza and pasta, as the name indicates, comprise the majority of dishes. Patrons can choose from pies with Hawaiian, Santa Fe, Southwestern, and classic Italian influences or can create their own extravaganzas from a long list of ingredients. Pastas come in two sizes and are ordered according to numbers; selections include teriyaki chicken pasta, tequila lime chicken pasta, or an entry with roast chicken, broccoli, and a rich cream sauce. Sandwiches, stir-fries, and calzones will take care of other appetites. Microbrewed beers are also available. (435-645-8878)

2 Cafe Trang
For no-fuss Vietnamese fare — as well as a few Chinese and Thai favorites — try this Asian eatery. The menu is truly gargantuan, ensuring that even the pickiest of eaters finds something to love. Pho is a favorite, and regulars return time and again for the steaming, noodle-filled broth.

Ask for a box when you order dinner — portions are generous, and you'll inevitably have some left over to take home. (435-655-8884)
