Since the onset of COVID-19, the world has changed. Not only has this global pandemic altered the way we socialize, shop, and live, it’s also changed the way we eat. While previous meals might have included meeting coworkers for lunch or going out on the town with friends, how we eat and how we communicate while eating has changed significantly.
Group dinners have changed to quarantine cooking adventures, and date nights have turned into quiet, home-cooked meals. However, many local restaurants here in Park City continue to offer diverse and high-quality food that you can order and bring right back to your home.
From traditional Thai to healthy fast-casual to wood-fired pizza, here are the best places to eat in take-out Utah’s most famous ski town.

Named for Australian husband-and-wife owners Andrew and Tiffany Percy’s five children, Five5eeds features Australia, heart-warming coffee, and many healthy options like grain bowls and shakshuka.

Now located at Deer Valley Resort, this modern Mediterranean restaurant is worth the trek up the hill just to pick up something different from the traditional ski town fare.

Like many other Park City restaurants, Hearth and Hill is a family-owned and run operation newly opened in the Kimball Junction area.

Coming from the same creators as Riverhorse on Main, this gourmet grocery store and cafe is a great stop for a delicious breakfast, lunch, or dinner in Park City.

They feature plenty of grab-and-go items on location, perfect for a quick stop-in.
Heat seekers and hangover sufferers will love the diverse array of menu items at El Chubasco. This location makes more than 20 varieties of salsa daily, each different than the last.
