High-end, high-altitude food is what Park City does best. Such are the spoils of a quaint resort town and tourism hot spot tucked in the mountains of the Wasatch back. But between seasonal population surges and relatively high price tags, sampling a wide swath of the epicurean bounty can be a challenge. That’s where Park City Plated comes in. The new program, launched by the Park City Area Restaurant Association (PCARA), highlights a different local restaurant each month by offering incredible deals on special menu items.
“Park City Plated is a brand-new way for guests to sample our community’s diverse dining scene,” says PCARA executive director Ginger Wicks. “Exclusive monthly specials from a rotating collection of some of Park City’s finest restaurants give guests the opportunity to experience new, local flavors and unique menu items all year long.”
There are two upcoming Park City Plated events in November, first on November 7 at Escala Provisions Company in the Hyatt at Canyons Village and November 13 at Powder at Waldorf Astoria. The Escala Provisions Company dinner features a four-course meal of local Utah flavors for $50, along with an optional $20 beer pairing from Epic Brewing Company. Powder’s Plated event features a “Farmer’s Table” dinner of elevated comfort food with sustainably sourced local ingredients for $60 per person along with an optional $30 wine pairing. The Waldorf Astoria is offering a lodging special with the event for those looking to make a quick getaway out of it.
Additional Park City Plated events will be announced throughout the year, and two more are already scheduled for December. Red Rock Brewery is hosting a deliciously educational dinner with three dishes and corresponding beer pairings on December 6. Brewmasters will be on hand to share food and beverage pairing tips with guests. A ticket for the event costs just $25 and includes an appetizer, entrée and dessert course and pairing. On December 19, High West is hosting a Plated event at Nelson Cottage. Details for the evening are still to come, but with High West’s food and beverage pedigree, it’s sure to be a can’t miss evening.
