Restuarant Suggestions- Park City/Provo for Olympics. . .js5280

Hello,

Pretty sure we have some people from Park City here but others who have recommendations from visits to the area are welcome too. I'm looking a nice place for dinner either in Park City, or on the way to Provo, or in Provo. Romantic a plus, but great food and wine (love those screwy Utah liquor laws!) is the top priority. Not real particular on the type of food. Mainly one of those places you go for a special occasion or favorite haunt for nice night out. Like to keep it under $30/entree. Thanks much!

P.S. Person who offers winning suggestion gets one free ride down the bobsled track on their road bike! ;-)
McDonalds should cost about $30/entree by that timespookyload

You have to know they are going to jack up prices bad during the olympics. According to the commercials, they will even have an international staff to serve you too. I was in Park City in the late 80's for a junior stage race, and I just can't see where they are going to put all those people unless it has developed tremendously.

P.S. Free mustache rides for the runner up in the contest.

My suggestion to you is ask the driver of your Canyon Transportation (or other) van or one of the hosts or employees where you are staying. I just got back from Alta/Snowbird and will go again in mid-late February. I've got some suggestions for that side of the Canyon, but not the Park City side. Have fun!

to your table ;-0 Yep, I live in Park City and work for the City. McDonald's, Arby's, Wendy's, Taco Bell are all by Interstate 80 (not technically in PC), Burger King in town. Park City has a lot of wonderful restaurants, only some of which will be taken over by Olympic sponsors as hospitality suites. For a complete list of restaurants in the area, check out the Chamber of Commerce/Visitors Bureau site at www.parkcityinfo.com and the Dining/Nightlife/Shopping Guide is a linked window. This list gives price ranges. Another linked window is under the 2002 Olympics for restaurants that will be available to the public for lunch and dinner service. Prices will not be escalated but getting a seat may be difficult. If you have questions about specific restaurants, please ask. My email is at the bottom.

Remember, that during the Games, Park City will be party central and has nearly 50% of the events in or nearby town. We expect upwards of 20,000 people per day here. Main Street will be vehicle free with some food vendor tents, 3 jumbo TVs, pin trading centers, etc. Parking will be out near Highway 40 (temporary park and ride lots) with bus shuttles into and out of town through 2am. Other Olympic related info is on the City's website www.parkcity2002.org

Have fun and look me up!

Might be closed by now but it was an interesting place. They yell your orders across the room as soon as you give them and they steal hats. Tres Romantic.
