My father would rather ski than breathe and so I have been skiing in Park City, Utah for decades. I have some favorite places to nosh after a day on the slopes and this year I tried a few new ones that I wanted to share with you.

Hearth & Hill

My friend, Jeremy, who lives in Salt Lake City has been showing me great spots in his area including a tour of the Mormon Temple.
This time we ate at Mazza which has authentic and tasty Middle Eastern food with two locations 9th and 9th where we ate as well 12th and 12th. They have been serving delicious meals since 2000 and I loved my beef kabob and the Labneh with beef.

I love all the restaurants in the Bill White group and have written about nearly all of them. This year my dad and I went to Ghidotti’s to enjoy their superb chicken parmigiana.

We ate with friends at Lespri and the photo of our meal was in the print edition of the Park Record!

When Amy and I went to ski in Park City and Deer Valley, I did something new. I went to lunch on main street! I had dined at Tupelo before but never for weekend brunch. It was divine! I especially love their biscuits!

  1. I have never skiied in the USA, just Europe (you should totally try Austrian or Italian slopes one day!) but these places look stunning. And is there anything better than a good local dish and a drink after the whole day of skiing? 🙂
    Thanks for sharing!
