Salt Lake City & Park City

Utah cuisine at its finest

Located about 40 minutes apart, Salt Lake City and Park City draw adventurous crowds with the area’s scenic mountains and vast Great Salt Lake. You’ll find plenty of history here, too, with the area’s pioneer roots still visible in downtown Salt Lake City and in the region’s favorite dishes. Restaurants serve up hearty casseroles and Dutch oven breakfasts. But like the city itself, Salt Lake’s culinary scene has grown beyond pioneer eats to include everything from sushi to modern American. Bakeries selling fresh-baked cookies, breads and cakes are easy to come by, and the food-truck craze has taken hold, with meals of all kinds on wheels. Salt Lake City even boasts a thriving microbrewery scene. Try local beers in bars and restaurants all around town.

About 50 kilometers southeast of Salt Lake City, Park City satiates the adventurous with a bevvy of après-ski style bars and high-end restaurants. There are more than 100 eateries within Park City’s borders, all offering delectable cuisine from around the world. During the winter, satisfy your appetite after a day on the slopes with a juicy burger, a thick-cut steak or a plate of French, Mexican or Indian-fusion fare. Or, if you’re visiting during the summer, plan your trip to coincide with the Park City Food & Wine Classic or the Savor the Summit festival.
