Restaurant association’s Dine About returns for third year

Bubba Brown

The Park City Area Restaurant Association has one bit of advice for people visiting town through the early part of October: Be ready to eat.

The association’s Dine About has returned for the third year in a row. Running through Oct. 11, the event allows hungry patrons to eat at several of the most popular restaurants in Park City for less than they would normally pay. Some restaurants are offering two-course lunches for $10 or $15 per person, some have three-course dinners for $20 or $40, and others have both the lunch and dinner options on the menu.

Ginger Ries, executive director of the Park City Restaurant Association, said it’s the best time of the year for diners looking for a deal.

"We want to encourage locals and Wasatch Front folks and also our visiting guests to get out and enjoy some of the different culinary offerings that we have in our community at a reduced price," she said. "It’s a great time to be in our area, with all the fall colors and cool temperatures, so adding a dining promotion to those elements seems to make sense."

Restaurants in the area have been enthusiastic about taking part in the Dine About, Ries said. About 15 restaurants participated in the first year of the event, and that number has ballooned to nearly 30. Likewise, customers have responded by showing up in force.

"Last year, we had over 3,000 diners coming through the area during the 11-day period," Ries said. "So we’re hoping that with more restaurants on board this year that we can exceed that number. That’s great for our community. We want people to come enjoy everything that Park City has to offer. It’s a win-win for everybody."
