Outdoor Main Street dining will return in the coming weeks, with several dining decks installed for the warm months at select Main Street restaurants. The Park City Council has to authorize the lease, with these restaurants making the cut: 501 on Main, Crystal Park Cantina, The Eating Establishment, Flanagan's on Main, Main Street Pizza & Noodle, Shabu, and Fletcher's.
The dining deck program began in 2010 and has been popular ever since, City Hall charges the restaurants with decks a fee that coincides with the lost revenue from paid parking they would otherwise collect if the decks were not there. The decks are a great way to attract people to come to Main Street to eat and enjoy the beautiful outdoor scenery and of course makes for good people watching.
