Dining Experience That’s Pure Silver

Like other upscale ski towns such as Aspen or Vail, Park City, Utah has no shortage of great restaurants.  The latest jewel in the culinary crown is called Silver.  Smack dab in the middle of Main Street, this cozy, chic restaurant could be in West Hollywood or Manhattan.  The decor turns a historic brick building into a hip spot with their use of dark blue velvet, croc print silver leather, etched, lighted glass and edgy silver metal accents.

This is not a case of style without substance though, the meal was amazing!  We started with a signature cocktail; there are over a dozen with clever names such as “Catch Her in the Rye” and “The Departed”.  My personal favorite was the Lavender Sidecar served in a sugar rimmed snifter.

The bread delivered to the table warm was like a soft pretzel with a basil dip.  I could have made my meal of that alone.

My hubby enjoyed the grilled octopus and the chicken coq au vin.  I was impressed by the innovative twist on popular favorites.  The Caesar salad was made with black kale and roasted cherry tomatoes.  The brussel sprouts were grilled (my favorite) with pomegranate giving an interesting touch of sweet to the savory.  And then there were the truffle fries… does anything more need to be said?

Not normally a dessert person, I had to at least peek at the offerings.  Given the creative drinks and meal selections, I was curious to see what they had to end the meal.  I was not disappointed!  The Pumpkin Chiffon Bombe proved irresistible.  Yes, that is spiced cotton candy atop the pumpkin treat and a sliver of grilled pineapple in the chocolate sorbet.

The service at Silver was warm and attentive making it a perfect evening in every way.  You can make reservations using OpenTable or UrbanSpoon.  The bar area is a great place to meet friends and be sure to check out the lighted sink in the unisex bathroom upstairs!
