350 Main New American Brasserie Review
The other night Casey and I went to 350 Main with a few of our friends that just so happen to work there. They have a reputation as one of the finest restaurants in Park City, and we jumped at the chance to dine with our friends who know the menu inside and out.
We arrived around 7:30 to a completely packed house with several parties waiting for tables. This was definitely a welcome change from the empty restaurants we’ve been seeing all over Park City this year. We had brought a few bottles of wine with us, and we decided to open the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc while we waited for our table. A few minutes later we were seated at the best table in all of 350 Main; the round booth right up against the large windows that overlook Main Street. This table is perfect for people watching, as well as making passers-by jealous of your excellent food.
For starters our hosts suggested the Tower of Ahi and Hamachi, Four Cheese Ravioli, the Roasted Eggplant Salad, and the Oganic Baby Greens. The sushi tower of maguro and hamachi was my favorite because it was surrounded by an excellent wasabi aioli for dipping. The server even brought out chopsticks specifically for this appetizer, which was a nice touch. Also, be sure to ask your server for the multi-grain bread basket, which is fresh-baked and perfect for soaking up the sauce from the Four Cheese Ravioli.
After corking our bottles of Argetinian Malbec and Coppola Diamond Claret, we decided it was time to order some entees. Casey went with the Ono-Ono prepared two ways, and I ordered the Coffee Rubbed Pork Tenderloin. Both entrees are priced around $35 and come with their own unique accutrements. The Ono plate is divided in half with one side containing grilled Ono on a bed of Asian stif fried vegetables, and the other with seared Ono on rice noodles. Casey and I both agreed that the grilled side had the better flavors, but the dish was great overall. My pork tenderloin came with black truffle mashed potatoes, roasted carrots, sauteed mushrooms and a simply amazing tomato bearnaise sauce. Our waiter even claimed that she would eat the plate if it was covered in the tomato bearnaise…I have to agree. The pork itself was cooked medium to medium rare and was extremely tender and flavorful. The coffee rub didn’t detract from the pork flavor at all, but just gave it an extra, subtle enhancement. From talking to some of the staff, it seems that the pork tenderloin is the unanimous favorite at 350 Main. Definitely give it a try next time you’re there. I also have to mention the Seabass that our friend Kristen ordered because I will most likely order that next time. I just had a bite, but it was supremely tender and had a great butterly flavor.
For dessert Casey and I decided to go with the Mocho Pot. It’s basically a very rich mousse served in a latte cup with fresh berries. It doesn’t look like a very large dessert, but we barely finished it between the two of us. The chocalate was rich and went well with our soft but full-bodied Malbec. It was the perfect end to our evening at 350 Main.
