A friend recommended we go to Prime Steakhouse while in Park City so we did. The atmosphere and staff we're amazing. The gentleman that was playing the piano and his guitar had an outstanding voice, and was an expert at both piano and guitar. He covered Pearl Jam, Led Zeppelin and I think he tossed in a Pink Floyd song as well. "Creep" from Radiohead is another of my favorites that he did.
The Steakhouse and Piano bar offers a less formal dining experience without skimping on the quality of food. If I were to get this same steak in another restaurant, I'd have to be in a suit jacket. But don't let that fool you, all the patrons were well behaved and we didn't see anyone that presented the threat of shutting down everyone else's good time.
So we wanted to find out what all the talk about Park City was all about; apparently whatever the talk IS about goes away with the snow. Now I understand that to fully enjoy this small and quiet town one should probably enjoy snow sports. I don't, but for a few good reasons that I could get into, but won't. I also understand that it really probably isn't the same place when it's off-season. With that said, we stopped into a brew pub that we both enjoyed. The staff and atmosphere was really nice and thats where I had my first Polygamy Porter. The beer was great, and my girlfriend had some sort of coffee-beer that she liked, but after a short bit we decided it was time to check out the rest of Main St.
One thing about Park City that we both enjoyed is that it reminds us both of Bisbee, AZ... except with a lot more money, and a lot less meth. The houses and buildings along Main St. are an awesome blend of the olden days of mining and the newer days of life not sucking because you're a miner. We totally dug the vibe here, and promise to come back up here during peak-season.
Found a Banksy, pretty cool. And I had to get a picture of these weird stairs too.
All in all, it was a fun day-trip to a cool little town although I wouldn't recommend waiting too eagerly on the free shuttle-bus to take you back up to the top of the hill. Don't worry though, there's plenty to stop and see on the way! Main St. is scattered with art galleries, bars, and other shops to keep you busy and interested. We'll be hitting up Park City in the future, so let us know where we need to see!
