The annual Park City Kimball Arts Festival this year will be a bit tastier than usual. Developed to “heighten festival attendees’ experience,” the Taste of Art program incorporates 16 of Park City’s restaurants into the festival. Participating restaurants will be offering special deals, dinners, lunches and brunches, which vary from business to business and range from two-for-one entrees at spots like Butcher’s Chop House, Bangkok Thai on Main, and The Eating Establishment, to special prix fixe menus at Reef’s Restaurant and discounts at Reyes Adobe and Shabu. Other eateries participating in Taste of Art include Atticus Coffee & Tea House, The Grub Steak, High West Distillery & Saloon, J&G Grill at the St. Regis, La Niche, Main Street Pizza & Noodle, Silver, Yuki Arashi and Zoom. The Arts Festival is extended this year and begins Friday, Aug. 5 at 5 p.m. and runs through Sunday, Aug. 7 until 6 p.m. For additional information, visit KimballArtCenter.org.
