Park City, Utah - Park City is the home of the 2002 Winter Olympics and also the annual Sundance Film Festival. People from around the world come here durning the winter months to participate in winter activities, watch films and enjoy the mountain town ambiance. Park City is not just for the snow worshippers, for there are plenty of warm weather activities to partake in as well. The streets in downtown  on Main Street are packed with restaurants and trendy boutiques.

One restaurant we stumbled upon was Riverhorse On Main. Although located in a very historic part of town the inside is surprisingly modern. In fact, it recently underwent some renovations. Executive Chef and part owner, Seth Adams, is top notch and runs a very tight ship. His restaurant is like a well oiled machine.  Even though he had a large private party and a packed house full of regular customers, the service was speedy and the presentation perfect. All the staff are friendly, knowledgable and prompt including our server Derrick. In any major city this would be a black tie affair, but like most mountain resort towns "mountain attire" (this means jeans and a nice shirt or sweater) is totally acceptable. I do highly recommend making a reservation because this is an extremely popular place to dine.  Riverhorse On Main has won many awards including the DiRoNa Award continuously since 1995 and even the coveted Mobil 4 Star Award. They change their menu often but maintain a few specialties year round like their Macadamia nut crusted Alaskan Halibut with mango chutney, the trio of wild game and Utah "Leeland Farms" red trout that is breaded with panko & pistachio nuts. Try the Chardonnay poached lobster & scallops, the grilled rack of lamb or even the pan-seared Barramundi and you won't be disappointed. One of my favorite appetizers was the roasted red beet salad that seemed to just melt in my mouth. The other pre-dinner courses we had were portioned well and had a perfect balance of flavors for any palate. The wine list is vast and changes frequently allowing one to sample a variety of great wines. The white chocolate & peanut butter bread pudding they served, made me like bread pudding. In one word, Wow! This is a must dine at place whenever you're in Park City, Utah. From start to finish, the experience was nothing less than phenomenal!
