Where to Grab a Bite in Park City

It’s January— the month of fresh starts and new beginnings. After the whirlwind that was 2020, we thought it would be nice to take a moment and update you on some of our Park City local favorite restaurants. A lot has changed over the past year— with some new places opening and some old stand-bys closing their doors. 

Whether you’re a Park City newbie or you visit us every year, here’s a list of our favorite places to grab a bite to eat in 2021.

Best Pizza in Park City:  Fuego’s Bistro & Pizzeria

2001 Sidewinder Drive— 435. 645. TOGO

For pizza and family-style Italian, you can’t beat Fuego’s. They’ve been around since 2006, and they continue to come up with new menu items that are sure to delight even the pickiest of pallets.

Their wood-fired pizzas range from the classic to the outrageous. Try their house specialty Margherita— with juicy San Marzano tomatoes, gooey mozzarella, and fresh basil. Since January is National Carnivore Month, you’ll want to give their Meat Lover’s Pie a try— complete with pepperoni, sausage, and salami. Our personal favorite is the Jupiter Pie, layered with olive oil, garlic, sundried tomatoes, feta cheese, fresh tomatoes, and melty mozzarella.

The dining room at Fuego’s is now open— subject to change, of course. They offer delivery and a number of non-pizza items too, like fresh housemade pasta, salads, and sandwiches, too.

Best Burger in Park City: Draft’s Burger Bar

3000 Canyon Resorts Drive— 435. 655. 2270

Located inside the Westgate Resort, Draft’s Burger Bar has a scrumptious menu— including some of the best burgers you’ll ever have— and a to-die-for mountain view in their dining room.

Where to begin? There are so many mouthwatering choices, you might want to come back a few times to sample them all. We are partial to the I Love Garlic burger because— well, we love garlic. Grilled to medium perfection and piled high with caramelized onions, garlic aioli, sauteed mushrooms, and gooey Swiss cheese— it’s garlicky burger perfection. Fans of all things spicy will love the Ghost Burger, complete with fiery ghost pepper sauce and ghost pepper jack cheese.

Draft’s Burger Bar also has over fifty beers on tap, homemade milkshakes, and an extensive craft cocktail menu.

Park City Pro Tip: Take a quick peek inside some of our Westgate Resort condos. Here, you can immerse yourself in luxury in the heart of Canyons Ski Resort. Experience the convenience of resort living and the privacy and peace of a mountain chalet. Plus, easy access to Draft’s Burger Bar!

Best Sunday Brunch in Park City: Glitretend

7700 Stein Way— 435. 645. 6455

With an elegant dining room and stunning views of Deer Valley Resort, you’ll want to slow down and savor brunch at this exquisite Park City restaurant. 

With specialty items like Bananas & Cardamom French Toast and Lingonberry & Blackberry pancakes, your whole family will flip out over this lavish and unforgettable spread. Complete with an omelet station and freshly sliced Prime Rib, the Glitretend does brunch like nowhere else in Park City.

They also offer a complete breakfast, lunch, and dinner menu. Reservations are recommended. 

Park City is full of crowd-pleasing, award-winning restaurants, and this is just a small sample of some of our favorite spots to grab a bite. For more insider info, give us a call or drop us a line any time. Moose Management is here to help make your next trip to Park City your best one yet. And if you try any of our suggestions, let us know! We love to hear from you.

Work From Home in Park City

We Welcome You to Work from Home in Park City

So many things have changed in the last 6 months. Who would have ever believed face mask fashion and working from home would become “things”?  

There’s no doubt that the Coronavirus has had a profound impact on all of our lives. It has affected the way we interact with the world, from the way we shop to the way we exercise to the way we hang out with our friends and family. It’s created a whole new world and it takes some getting used to, right?

It’s hard to see a silver lining in all of this, but there is one. And that’s that there are now more remote workers than ever before. More and more employers are jumping on the “work from home” bandwagon and location freedom has become a real thing for many employees. 

In times past, the only people lucky enough to work from home were self-employed. The trade-off was the instability of self-employment. 

Now, remote workers get the best of both worlds. The ability to work in their pajamas, and not have to endure endless meetings AND have a steady paycheck and benefits. 

What could be better?

Ummm,  a change of pace, maybe?

Upgrade Your Views While Working from Home

That’s where we come in! Everyone is feeling a little stir-crazy after months of stay-at-home orders and endless Amazon boxes delivered to our doors. And staring at the same walls around our makeshift home offices can get, well, boring. 

Since you can now work from anywhere, why would you not want to work in Park City? While there are some safety measures in place (face coverings and social distancing are important here), many of the things you’ve always loved about Park City are open and available for your enjoyment! 

Plenty of Activities in Your Off Time

All of our 400 miles of open hiking and mountain biking trails are open. Just be safe and courteous to fellow hikers and bikers. Need a trail guide or outfitter? No problem, they’re open for business. Check out this list of available outdoor activities.  

Looking to hit the slopes in your downtime? Good news – the resorts are open. Since Social distancing is pretty much already built in to skiing, not much has changed, but check with each individual resort as a precaution. 

How about a romantic dinner or a kid-friendly night out? Check. While restaurants have altered their seating practices (parties must be seated at least 6’ apart), many of your favorites are open for inhouse dining. And of course, if take-out or curbside is more your jam, that’s available, too. 

If you’d like to pamper yourself or a loved one with a spa day, you can make it happen with the appropriate social distancing. 

Looking to stay out of the fresh mountain air for a few hours? Some of our wonderful arts and culture venues have reopened for our guests and locals.

You’re Safe with Us While You Work from Home

All of our vacation rental properties offer you the safety and security of your own private space, CDC-guidelines cleaning, WiFi, and the comfort of a home-like atmosphere while you’re working from home! A view of those mountain peaks, whether inside or out, is always inspiring!

You and your dedicated quaranteam deserve the adventure of a Park City work (or play) vacation! We look forward to providing you with a treasured family memory!

What’s There To Do This Fall in Park City? Plenty!

Fall in Park City looks a little different this year. We may be missing some of the festivals and gatherings we’ve attended in the past, there’s still plenty of reasons to visit Park City in the fall!

As a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts, Park City never fails to delight no matter what season you choose to visit. And with our current health concerns, you can feel safe and secure enjoying our stunning mountain retreat with easy social distancing from others. There’s always something to do, somewhere to go, and new experiences to be cherished.

Consider some of these options: 

Take a Hike! 

No, seriously. With more than 400 miles of hiking trails in and around Park City, you’re sure to find your perfect fit, whether you’re a novice or an advanced hiker. 

Wind your way through landscapes ranging from meadows to mountains to rivers and keep your eye out for a variety of local wildlife. Just remember to enjoy them from a distance – no selfies, please!

Mountain Biking

Looking for something a little more daredevil-ish than a simple hike? How about a mountain bike ride?

You might be surprised to learn that Park Çity is a mountain biking destination as well as a skiing destination, but it is! 

With a minimum of a half-dozen mountain biking trails in the area, you’ll no doubt find your perfect balance of exercise and scenery to enjoy. 

Fishing

While you may not think of Park City as a premier fishing destination, there’s some pretty darn good blue-ribbon fly-fishing on both the Provo and Weber Rivers. Prefer to get out of the streams and eddies? Check out the still water fly fishing on the Strawberry, Echo, Rockport, and Jordanelle reservoirs. 

Hot Air Ballooning

What better way to see the entire Park City landscape than from within the safety of a hot-air balloon’s basket? Prepare for an awe-inspiring journey as you take in the oranges, yellows, and reds of surrounding fall foliage. Make sure to have that camera ready!

While most hot-air balloons accommodate anywhere from 4-10 guests, you can reserve a 2-person excursion with a 1-person pilot to maximize your safety.

Outdoor Dining

While it may be a while until we all feel safe about indoor dining again, we can certainly consider an outdoor meal (and in Park City, that may well come with a great view, at no extra charge!)

What could be better than sitting in the crisp fall air, with a favorite beverage and great company, while you enjoy a delicious meal from one of your favorite (or new favorite) Park City restaurants. 

A few suggestions: 

Riverhorse on Main

The Bridge Cafe and Grill

Shabu

Main Street Pizza and Noodle

Flanagan’s on Main

Scenic Drives

Last, but by no means least, hop in the car and take a scenic country drive! You won’t find more beautiful country than in our little corner of heaven. Here are some suggestions to get you started: 

Guardsman Pass

Wolf Creek Highway Pass

Weber Canyon

Bridal Veil Falls Trail

So, while we’re experiencing our favorite destinations in a new way these days, that doesn’t mean we can’t still get the most out of every day of vacation. You can still avoid the crowds, travel just with your own quaranteam and have a picture perfect vacation in Park City.

We look forward to welcoming you into one of our Covid-clean and safe rental homes and condominiums. As always, if we can help in any way, simply ask. We love to see our guests happy!
