I have something to share with you.
Another awesome trip to Park City, Utah. The highlights- my daughter skied her first black, we all enjoyed the Olympic Park ropes course, zip line and 65 foot free fall and of course the food!
Hotel Park City, the Autograph Collection
Marriott has some great properties and I noticed that this was an all-suites hotel with a spa. Perfect! Every morning and afternoon they offered shuttle service to the mountain AND would drive you to town or dinner at night. Plus there was a breakfast buffet every day!

Now for the restaurants –
Loved the atmosphere. Walk in, down the stairs and our table was ready (Thank you OpenTable!) My daughter had a direct view of the sushi bar from where we sat so she was happy. We ordered sake and some sushi, a couple appetizers and the black cod. Loved this spot!

Sometimes I will check the foodtv websites to see what restaurants the celeb chefs have profiled on their shows. I found one for Park City and the whole family enjoyed it. It was super casual(needed after skiing) and had a line out the door. We even tried the “Chivito” Club Sandwich that was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, & Dives and it was really good! Need super casual and kid friendly with a great price point – THIS is your spot!

Blind Dog Restaurant & Sushi:
I did some google searches and found The Female Foodie. I had been to a bunch of spots that she recommended in Park City but this one was new to me. This spot is closer to the Marriott rather than on Main Street. We enjoyed another dinner and loved the quotes all along the restaurant wall.

A seafood shack in Park City – ok, we are headed to the tubing spot close by so let’s try it!

We decided to try an Italian spot although our first choice was not open on Mondays. Although I was not a fan of what I ordered (too much bacon in the pasta with clam sauce- strange, right?), my husband said his Alfredo was good. And of course my daughter loved her spaghetti and meatballs.
Pasta with Clams (and Bacon)
After a full Italian meal you head north on Main Street to get ice cream. Sorbet for me, ice cream for them, we were all happy.

Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse:
Yes, if you live in a major city you can dine at Ruth’s Chris but sometimes after a full day of skiing you are just too damn tired to leave the hotel. So, an elevator ride away we dined on French onion soup, bone in ribeyes with creamed spinach and sautéed mushrooms, splurged on a very rich lobster Mac and cheese and finished with Creme Brûlée to share. Time for bed!

Last night of the trip and we were celebrating my birthday so I chose Fletcher’s. I did try a few new things although stuck with the same biscuits, salad, and dessert that I loved from the last trip!
