Chez Betty - Park City

Last month the entire family made the trek to Park City for the annual awesomeness that is the Sundance Film Festival. We only had two nights to pack in seven movies and that only left a few hours to actually eat. We wanted a nice "festival" worthy meal Saturday night and found Chez Betty as a highly rated, classic and familial French restaurant.

We all had a very nice meal with good food and nice service. I decided to go with the four course chef tasting menu so I wouldn't have to make choices. Everyone else ordered standard starter and entree courses. My menu included puree of parsnip, crusted soft shell crab (that I traded with my mother for the ravioli), main course of grilled flat iron steak and dessert of de-constructed s'mores. The steak was fantastic and definitely the highlight of the meal. The s'more was interesting but very rich after an already rich meal. The soup was a nice start and well done, simple but flavorful. Both starters that I tried (soft shell crab and "ravioli") were good though somewhat bland given the above average complication of the dish. The "ravioli" was an interesting and filled with goat cheese and potato. They use quotations because it's not what you expect as a pasta. It was certainly creative. My favorite starter was the crab cake we ordered for the table. It was large and interesting with each bite.

Erica also ordered a steak dish (hanger steak) and hers also came with scallops. My grilled flat iron was delicious and perfectly cooked with great flavors. It was served with Sweet Onion Jam, Mushroom and Brie Crostini. 

The meal was a perfect way to celebrate and enjoy our short but action packed weekend in Park City. Chez Betty is a quality and great place to have a nice dinner in the mountains serving traditional and authentic french fare.
