Park City: a non-skier's guide to the best restaurants & accommodations
Don't let the title confuse you, I wish we could've skied in Park City, but the prices were outrageous! If you find yourself in the same position, and are still looking to visit - or just want to go on a luxurious winter holiday, you've come to the right place!
Where to Stay
Park City is already expensive, but if you want to really splurge my top picks would be either the Stein Erickson Lodge or The St. Regis Deer Valley. They're both located in the same area and offer the same level of luxury, so it's really up to you! They're both about a 10 minute drive to Park City, but something about being tucked away in the winter wonderland that is the Deer Valley area is just so peaceful. If you are skiing, this is exactly where you want to be.
If you're traveling on a more modest budget, I recommend the Sheraton Park City. We stayed there and loved how close it was to everything. If you're not skiing the location is perfect and they run free shuttles throughout the day so you don't have to drive on the icy roads. They do an aprés ski event every day with snacks and drinks which I thought was a nice touch!
Where to Eat
Get ready to make reservations! Park City has so many amazing restaurants, I wish we stayed longer just so we could've tried more. Our most amazing meals were all outside of downtown Park City. That's not to say they don't have great restaurants, but we found the overall experience was better in other areas!
Sure to be a crowd pleaser, this place makes all of their pasta in house, and was my favorite meal in the city. You must order the grilled garlic bread, it's out of this world. For entrees, we both loved our dishes! Both the rigatoni bolognese and the spinach chicken fettuccine were 10/10.
A healthier restaurant, not limited to any specific cuisine, Twisted Fern ended up blowing us both away. It had great reviews but we really didn't know what to expect. Pictured here are the sesame chickpeas and the ravioli. My boyfriend got one of their more "famous" dishes - the short rib patty melt and he loved it. The prices were also very reasonable and not nearly as much as other restaurants in the area serving similar food.
ST. REGIS MOUNTAIN TERRACE
Arguably the most important part of this entire post - THE HOT CHOCOLATE AT THE ST. REGIS. Oh my god, I don't know where to even start. Throw everything you know about hot chocolate out the window. This stuff is like drinking the inside of a chocolate lava cake. It is thick, buttery, and ultra rich. This ended up being our lunch! Trust me you have never tasted hot chocolate like this. If anyone can figure out the recipe please email me...I'm begging. It's pricy but you cannot skip out on this!
Well that raps up my must eat and stay recommendations for Park City, Utah!
Till next time,
