Each evening, Kuali Days attendees are responsible for their dinners. And, foodie or not, everyone has to eat. To help you decide where you’d like to eat during the conference, we put together a list of some of the most popular local restaurants in Midway, Heber, and Park City.
While Midway is a small mountain town, there are a few options for eating, including two restaurants located right at the Zermatt if you want to just stay put.
A modern, farm-to-table American food restaurant, the Midway Mercantile is just a few blocks from the Zermatt. Their menu features diverse tastes and artisan bread and salads. You can also opt for wine pairing dinners.
The Corner Grill
You can find great food and wine here, including fresh bread and desserts straight from their bakery. Occasionally you can find live music here.
Z Chop Haus
For an elevated experience without leaving the Zermatt resort, Z Chop Haus is a great option. The filet mignon and Atlantic king salmon are a few favorites.
The Wildfire Grill, located at the Zermatt, is a fabulous option. Some of the staff’s favorites are the brisket, the friend tomatoes, and the gluten-free pizza.
Heber City is a rapidly growing city that is only a few minutes from Midway. Here you’ll find all the conveniences for dinner or other errands—pharmacy, groceries, etc.—you might need to take care of in the evening hours. For dinner, here are some options to consider:
Main Street Social
The Main Street Social, housed in a restored historic building, offers American food with a unique flare and great ambiance. Try the bison bolognese, cauliflower risotto, or one of the tasty desserts.
This quaint, rustic restaurant is just a few minute’s ride from the Zermatt. You can find steak frites, fried chicken, and housemade potato chips here.
If you’re craving pizza, The Junction is the place for you. Their quick service and fresh ingredients won’t disappoint. And, gluten-free diners have options too.
There is also a variety of fast food options (McDonald’s, Subway, etc.), including the Dairy Keen, a “greasy spoon” serving burgers, fries, chicken, and a large selection of shakes and ice cream treats.
Park City is known for locally-owned restaurants with award-winning cuisine. This is just a sampling, as there are too many to mention. Please note that restaurants in Park City will likely be more expensive than those in Midway and Heber.
Yuki Yama Sushi
You’ll find Park City’s best tasting sushi at Yuki Yama. Their fresh fish, flown in daily from around the world, is partnered with outstanding flavors and textures. Try the baby back ribs, or if you’re feeling adventurous, the Omakase nigiri which features 9 pieces of chef’s choice nigiri sushi.
Handle offers delicious American food, served small-plate style. Their seasonal menu gives the diner options of cold, hot, small, or hearty plates. Plus dessert, of course. Some of the most popular menu items are the General Tso Cauliflower, fried chicken breast, and the burger.
High West Distillery and Saloon
Nestled in Old Town Park City, High West is one of the hottest spots around. Be sure to make reservations in advance. Some highlights from the menu? Pretzel and beer cheese, the High West burger, elk chili, and bison short ribs. And don’t miss out on their award-winning small-batch whiskeys!
710 Bodega Tapas and Wine
This Spanish-inspired restaurant is the perfect spot if you’re looking for something unique. Grab some tapas, like Brussel sprouts with bacon or fried brie with quince paste along with a glass of red wine (or the house sangria).
Riverhorse on Main
If you’re looking for a fine dining experience, Riverhorse on Main is the place. It’s one of the best restaurants Park City has to offer and hosts food enthusiasts from all over the world each year.
We hope you enjoy some local grub at one of these recommendations!
