A symphony of clinking glasses and joyful laughter reverberates off the green mountain slopes, where ski lifts dangle listlessly in a state of suspended hesitation. Awash in the perfume of fresh herbs and flowers from surrounding pots, the alpine air envelops guests partaking in upscale European and American fare on the patio of Kimi's Mountainside Bistro. Nestled in Big Cottonwood Canyon, Kimi's entertains the eyes as well as the stomach, serving up views of the surrounding ski slopes and mountainous terrain reminiscent of the natural habitat of a wild salad fork. Within the bistro’s bustling kitchen, chef Matt Anderson silences yodeling appetites with an eclectic array of breakfast, lunch, dinner, and brunch fare. His selections are inspired by travels throughout the Mediterranean, Scandinavia, and the American West. His kitchen staff chops, grills, and bakes flavorful ingredients such as Himalayan pink salt, hickory-smoked bacon, and fresh mozzarella into refined dishes whisked out of the kitchen by seasoned servers. As alfresco eaters bask in the smoky redolence wafting from the patio’s fire pits and outdoor grill, indoor visitors break bread amid exposed wood beams and soft lighting that offer a cozy but elegant retreat from the elements and dessert-stealing mountain bunnies.

Scents of homemade red and green curries, and ginger-glazed crispy duck waft out of Bangkok Thai's kitchen, foreshadowing the arrival of plates of refined Southeast Asian cuisine. The chefs tailor entrees to each diner, turning the amount of spice up or down in their entrees for mild meals or mouthfuls with enough spice to evaporate nearby snowmen. Draped with crisp, white tablecloths, the neutral-toned dining room's tables surround a glass-walled wine cellar, which earned the restaurant a 2011 Best of Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator for its extensive selection. In addition to first-growth Bordeaux wines and muscular Napa Valley cabernet sauvignons, the wooden racks buckle with a number of food-friendly options, including Oregonian pinot noirs, crisp Alsatian rieslings, and fruit-forward sauvignon blancs from New Zealand.

Chef Ross Siragusa grew up in the Italian section of Chicago learning the ins-and-outs of Italian-American cooking. He has recreated those recipes and many others over the years, treating guests to his homestyle cooking at Siragusa?s. Inside the eatery?s kitchen, pork shanks slow roast for Grandpa Tom?s osso buco, and grilled chicken breasts dress up in a gorgonzola cream sauce. Guests can double the flavor and treat themselves to the combination plate?s half orders of sweet potato gnocchi and veal parmesan, or lasagna and cappellini with pesto. Sandwiches and pizzas are also on the menu, and any of the dishes can be eaten at the eatery?s two locations or catered for a party celebrating a birthday or graduation from traffic school.

The Back Door Delicatessen, which has been featured in Taste of Park City, is known for its stacked menu of more than 50 sandwiches and breads gathered from local bakeries. Diners can consult fortune cookies to order based on lucky digits or save time with the universally auspicious #7, which piles hot corned beef, swiss cheese, and coleslaw on rye with a drizzle of russian dressing. The #13 slips layers of roasted turkey and avocado onto a croissant, and the #40, 1 of 10 vegetarian specialties, tops a sourdough baguette with brie, artichoke hearts, and red onion. The deli's impressive roster of meats, cheeses, and toppings also paves the way for custom sandwiches, and a rotating list of daily soups and sides, including potato salad, fresh mozzarella salad, and chips, staves off taste bud boredom without resorting to drastic measures such as swallowing fireworks.

Flying Sumo provides a vast menu of freshly cut uncooked fish and an eclectic selection of Asian-inspired entrees. Start with a sesame-dressed wakame seaweed salad ($6) or the squid salad ($7), which is full of Japanese mountain vegetables. Nigiri (two pieces) and sashimi (six pieces) orders of tako (octopus: nigiri $6/sashimi $15) and sake (salmon: nigiri $7/sashimi $17) prepare diners' stomach chambers for Flying Sumo's traditional, fried, and special rolls. Sushi-ists will enjoy the samurai roll's ($11) fiery combination of tuna, shishito peppers, and radish gently doused in spicy mayo and Thai chili sauce. For fried followers, the Vegas roll ($15) takes layers of tempura-fried salmon and combines them with cream cheese, crab, and avocado. Special rolls—great for birthdays and license renewal parties—include packed, singular creations such as the meme-worthy Chuck Norris ($15) with its tempura shrimp, crab, jalapeño, and avocado.

Prime Steak House and Piano Bar carves up a menu highlighted by an array of succulent steaks made with Midwestern, custom-aged beef. Protein-hungry incisors can gnaw on Prime’s signature 8-ounce fillet as the accompanying bluefin crabmeat and béarnaise sauce smother taste buds ($33), similar to a 45-minute voicemail from Mother. Like the fillet, the 16-ounce new york strip is seasoned with kosher salt and pepper, lightly caressed with butter, and served on a hot plate to sustain the flavor-sealing warmth produced by the restaurant’s 1,800-degree broiler ($41). Strap on homemade scuba gear to explore sea-sourced dishes such as the tuna steak, an 8-ounce fillet seared rare and served with a ginger-mustard wasabi sauce ($33). Prime’s signature molten-chocolate cake, crafted with imported Valrhona chocolate, makes an eye-catching entrance onto tables accompanied by an entourage of cool vanilla ice cream ($11).
