All three Park City resorts are closed but will reopen for summer operations after Memorial Day. It makes sense that some of your fave dining spots nearby also take the shoulder season off. But if you do want to eat in Park City sooner rather than later make sure to call ahead before driving all the way up to Main Street just to find the ‘CLOSED’ sign out. The good news is that when they do reopen there will be plenty of two-for-one coupons available. Ask locals, they know who’s got the deals and pick up a Park Record newspaper for printed coupons.
Closed Through May 6:
Blind Dog, Good Karma
Closed May 5-19:
High West Distillery, Mustang, Shabu,
Closed until the end of May:
350 Main, Reef’s, Flanagan’s, Wahso, Prime Steakhouse, Silver
Closed until the end of June:
