Park City, Utah: Yes, we are still in charming Park City, Utah. Such a lovely spot in Our Great Country. I encourage you all to get in your RV's (or cars if absolutely necessary) and visit Park City!
We had a late-morning tee time, so I was able to try an interesting-looking recipe for Sweet Corn Pancakes posted the other day at Smitten Kitchen.
With all those lovely carbs in our bellies - we headed out for 18 holes at Park City Golf Course. We were paired with two locals, David & Bob. We feel lucky when paired with locals - they know the course and are always good sources for restaurant recommendations.Today, Park City Golf Course was featuring a "Ball Fitting" clinic. You can just imagine the jokes I heard today. "Oh, if I just wasn't a lady". Park City Golf Course is the municipal course and the only public course in the area. The links were in fabulous shape today and extremely challenging. The scenery was breath-taking (pun intended as the course sits as 7000 ft. elevation; we used a golf cart) with seemingly endless views of resorts with adjacent ski lifts/runs. This resort sits on the Park City Golf Course. You can take the little lift behind your room to connect to several different ski runs.
And by "you", I mean "you". Not me. I don't do snow. Here, my driver uses his driver on the 16th hole. How often do you get to golf below a ski slope with a bobsled/luge run? (The white trail down the hill is the bobsled/luge run.) The course didn't conquer this girl. Oh, no. I shot my usual 120-something! Yeah, me!
This evening we had reservations for dinner at Easy Street at the Sky Lodge in downtown Park City. We were seated right away and the restaurant was very pretty, with white linens and modern decor. (Too dark for photos.)
DT had Buffalo Carpaccio for his appetizer. Yes, Dear Reader, raw buffalo... in this instance, sliced very (very, very, very) thin. Served with the traditional accompaniments - arugula, lemon and pecorino - his appetizer was delicious (I tasted it too). I ordered a spinach salad with house-smoked salmon (without the slab bacon). My salad also included caramelized pears and feta. Again, delicious. Of course, I ordered Steak Frites (the filet Mignon version with Bearnaise) and DT ordered the very unkosher Lobster Mac & Cheese. We could not begin to finish our meals. So much food. Dang, and it was so delicious too.
Did we enjoy Easy Street? Yes. And no. The food was very good, but we felt a bit rushed. The waitress asked for our entree orders before offering us a cocktail or wine. (Yes, yes, I know we are in Utah, but this restaurant has a very lively bar.) The joint was barely half-full - what was the rush? Then, after being so rushed, I watched my steak frites sitting under the heat lamp a full fifteen minutes before it was delivered to me. (The steak was still, unexplainably, "medium".)
Am I over picky? Yes. Don't get me started about the two dudes next to us in cargo shorts and tee shirts. Either way, we would return to Easy Street because the food was really good.
Until my next update, I remain, your picky correspondent.
