Now they're making it official on video.

In spite of mayor Dana Williams' folksy fireside demeanor and mandolin skills, three new promo spots showcasing Park City cuisine look decidedly, well ...see for yourself:

Though Park City chefs take one step up for local cuisine and attempt more than just lipservice to sustainability - as Mary Malouf spake in her recent review of Goldener Hirsch - a promo video selling endangered tuna poke, Alaskan king crablegs and all things a decade-ago and un-PC takes the dining scene on the Wasatch (two steps) Back.


If you've got the scratch, there's lovely stuff going on at Spruce, J&G, Talisker on Main and Stein Eriksen, but what are your options in PC for a couple wanting grass-fed, locally grown pork/lamb/chicken/beef/veggies? How 'bout fresh fish caught in the Provo? How about a meal featuring Utah eggs, melons, tomatoes and cheese for under $40?



Easy to play armchair foodie and chirp about what PC really needs - and since we're no strangers to starting at Monday Morning QB, here's just a few ideas we can bite...investors take note:

Lokal in Sonoma, Calif.: Dubbed as European Soul Food the restaurant serves beer and brats in the heart of wine country. Offerings include chicken schnitzel ($16) washed in egg batter and pan-fried with bacon-flecked sweet-and-sour red cabbage spaetzle; a nightly fish special (caught locally) and apps like the mixed grill ($11) featuring sausages, mustards and pickled veggies. Or, there's a Tivoli two-dog dipper ($5) - two sausages with mustard and ketsup. The sausages are made from parts of local animals and ground in house.

Meat Cheese Bread in Portland, Ore. Portland knows how to make a sandwich, but nary an offering in Park City beyond traditional Subway-meets-grocery-deli-counter fare. Meat Cheese Bread takes local greens, cheeses, veggies, breads and meats to make a little easy-on-the-wallet magic. How bout the flank steak sandwich, blue cheese and a pile of meat ($7); sloppy Joe's ($8) featuring local ground (maybe in PC it could even be buffalo Joe's - hey there's a name) or a local BLT made from Kamas pork and locally grown tomatoes and beets ($8)?

Wood Tavern Restaurant in Oakland, Calif. Not too difficult to duplicate here. The owners took a small space, added a little light and light fare to create an American brasserie. Menu has all the stuff you can get in the Beehive: local cheese board, pork bellys with lentil; free range pan-roasted chicken, spinach and poached egges, sherried mushrooms, grilled (again, local) pork chop, smoked bacon and mushrooms, warm chocolate cake. Wait? Is this Oakland or Utah? All starters around $8; entrees $10-$15.

But why look so far away for culinary inspiration? Where is the PC version of Pizzeria 712 in Orem; Communal in Provo; Forage, Pago, Vinto, Sea Salt in Salt Lake City?
