Dining outdoors in the summer is always fun, but sharing a table with about 1,500 other people is an unforgettable experience! 

 Park City's annual Savor the Summit took place Saturday night (June 25).  Highlight of the event was the Grande Table.

Main Street was closed to traffic, and tables and chairs were set up in the middle of the street to become a mile-long table.

Each participating restaurant offered its own set menu and created its own table setting.    

Talisker on Main's table featured a leafy bowery.

Deer Valley's Royal Street Cafe table.

was a guest at the Royal Street Cafe's table, easy to find along the street because of it featured the signature dark green color of Deer Valley Resort.

My daughter, Amy, and I came early so we could browse some of the shops and admire all the tablescapes. I made my annual stop at the Deer Valley shop to buy a jars of the resort's Oomph! seasoning and Cilantro Lime Glaze. Amy made her annual stop at the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory for a truffle to enjoy tomorrow.

Here's one of appetizers we enjoyed: BLT & A, which featured house-smoked maple peppered bacon, Boston bibb lettuce, seared tuna and avocado, with Green Goddess dressing.  Quite a step up from your usual tuna sandwich!  
 I loved the the grilled asparagus appetizer, wrapped in  shavings of Rockhill Belvedere Tomme cheese, and Prosciutto (which, unfortunately, I didn't think to photograph). 

The first course was a pan-seared sea scallop, large and meaty, with a pool of two sauces: roasted red pepper and black bean. There was also a crunchy salad of grilled frisee, chayote and heirloom cherry tomatoes. 

 The entree was a Bear River Lamb Loin Filet, resting on risotto with peas and morels. I forgot to take a photo of it (hey, this idea of photographing everything I eat is still new to me.)

Dessert was  Payson Cherry Tart — cream-filled almond shortbread, sweet-tart cherries and sorbet. Pastry chef Letty Flatt told me she got the super-flavorful cherries from McMullin Orchards in Payson. Makes me want to make a "fruit run" to Utah county in the near future.
