New American Cuisine


The lights are dim. Hushed conversation bounces off of white walls covered with expressive artwork by racecar driver Hal Prewitt. The dark tones and soft tablecloths suit the elegant ambiance of The Mustang. A lovely bottle of wine and a few craft cocktails, perhaps a “For the Love of Chocolate” or “A Gentleman’s Calling,” shorten the time until small beautifully decorated plates appear before you. You sip indulgently, admiring the photos of Park City all around. Perhaps, you’ll find the next place you’d like to discover. The “Elk Chop” is particularly good, but life is really all about decadent desserts. The menu boasts six of them, each more scrumptious than the last. You settle on the “Double Black Diamond,” it’s a ski town after all. 

The Mustang is a modern rustic destination for a classy dinner and beautiful artwork. It may not be a good post-skiing spot in all your snowy glory, but it’s ideal for a balmy summer night. The food is on the pricier side, but where else can you get “Duck A L’Orange”? Plus, there is a kid’s menu, so you aren’t taking home boxes of the little ones’ food. This is the perfect place for a date night or a business dinner to impress a client. They do not cater to dietary restrictions on their menu and the bar tables are strictly 21 and up. The Mustang is also on Main Street, so you can walk around pre or post meal and check out the local galleries and shops, or even catch a show at the Egyptian. Reservations are recommended and can be made online through their website. The Mustang is currently closed for the season and will reopen on June 20. During the season, they open at 5:30 and close at nine pm, ten on Friday and Saturday.
