One of the great parts of vacation is getting a break from cooking and getting to experience new foods and new settings. With Park City being a super popular family destination to ski, I thought I'd share my ideas for where to eat in Park City, Utah. With any luck, these suggestions will help you avoid "hangry" skiers or getting stuck with a bad, over-priced meal.
And here's another Momtrends Tip: Don't forget to get your 5th and 6th graders a Ski Utah Passport so they can ski free! Click here for more details.
Where to Eat in Park City Utah
Twisted Fern: My new favorite spot is Twisted Fern. It's located in an unassuming shopping mall right before Park City proper. Don't be fooled by the exterior, the interior has a modern 60's vibe with uncluttered decor and a full bar.
The service is warm and solicitous. If you are torn on what to order, just ask, suggestions will be provided. My suggestions: start with the Garlicky and Sesame Chickpeas. These snappy little numbers are salty and go perfectly with a cocktail or crisp white wine.
For mains, I went vegetarian -- the Chicken Fried Portabello dish was delish. My friend ordered the open-faced Shorty Melt sandwish. We both cleaned our plates!
Save room for dessert. The Olive Oil Cake is a delight. The just-right portion was ideal to cap off a great meal.
A kids menu is also available. www.twistedfern.com Reservations suggested. 1300 Snow Creek Drive, Suite RS, Park City, UT 84060 (435) 731- 8238
Loco Lizard: For great Mexican food, my ski mom friends love this spot . I'm told the yummy margaritas can't be missed. They offer a full gluten-free option too.
Check out the menu here: www.locolizardcantina.com/ 1612 W Ute Blvd, Park City, UT 84098 (435) 645-7000
Yuki Yama Sushi Park City: For terrific sushi and ramen. Ski moms recommend the the Beef Tataki appetizer. It's fun for kids. They can cook the meat themselves on a sea salt block.

Skip the Crowds and Take Your Family Skiing in Waterville Valley

Grown-Up Options in Park City, Utah
Firewood on Main: Start creamy burratta cheese as you look over the tasty wine list of this high end restaurant in the heart of Park City. Momtrends Favorite: the Grilled Quail was worth the wait. Seared to perfection and paired with blueberries "gastrique" we were in heaven. Kid-friendly pick: Our girls split the lamb chop and loved it.
Once again, we adored the Olive Oil Cake, a dense and moist cake packed with flavor which paired perfectly with gelato and jam.
Reservations suggested. Use Open Table. firewoodonmain.com 306 Main Street. 435.252.9900
High West Distillery: This one is for the grown-ups. It's a distillery and serves a tasty American menu. Can one fall in love with a deviled egg? Well, I think it happened. Must've been the bacon toppers. Mr. Momtrends was smitten with his rye tasting flight (who says Utah is dry!) the meat-heavy menu had many appealing options.
