10 Best Restaurants in Casual, but Chic Park City, Utah

Yes, Park City, Utah is for skiers and snowboarders and those who love the great outdoors, but Park City is also a foodie's haven, or should I say heaven?  The city even offers food tours now, where a guide will not only give you a nice background on the history of the area, but allow you to sample fare from 4 or 5 restaurants on Main Street.

This chic mountain town is also hosting its distinguished 10th annual Food and Wine Classic this July, where many events take place, including local chefs offering bite size samples at the grand tasting event.  Standard method of operation here is to use fresh, local ingredients while providing creative flair to fare.

This is no ordinary small town, this high-altitude home to over 100 (many award-winning unrivaled) restaurants.  The old days of silver mining are long gone and what remains are the buildings along the historic Main Street, which house many of the fine restaurants which serve more tourists than locals.

Most have a rustic yet urban chic interior, such as Riverhorse on Main and Robert Redford's restaurant he opened in 1995, Zoom.  Some are more quaint, like Cafe Terigo, some sexy beautiful, such as Wahso, the Asian grille.  But the top restaurants in Park City, which cater mostly to a discerning and sophisticated set of clientele (don't let the casual attire fool you) all have one thing in common - great food due to the high standard of excellence expected in this exclusive resort town.  Peruse the list for our 10 Best.
