Park City's dining scene has received some international flare in recent months with the addition of restaurants specializing in the foods of Peru, India and Spain. There's also a new coffee roaster in town.
Here are the details:
Del Mar al Lago • Park City residents don't have to go far to get a taste of Peru, with the recent opening of Del Mar al Lago. Located in the strip mall at Prospector Avenue, the menu includes lomo saltado, marinated beef and onions served over fried potatoes and rice; several variation of ceviche; and Peru's national drink, the Pisco Sour. The restaurant has a slightly different menu than Del Mar al Lago in Salt Lake City and it has different owners. But Park City Chef Luis Arroyo, a native of Peru with 42 years culinary experience, is related and worked at the Salt Lake restaurant since it opened in 2013. In November, Arroy joined with operation manager Aaldo Diaza and business partner Daniel Ponce to bring "Peruvian flavor and culture to Park City."

Bodega on Main • Restaurateurs Paolo Bello and Nicholas Smurthwaite, the owners of Park City's Buona Vita Italian restaurant, opened this Spanish tapas spot in December. Bello, who is originally from South America, and Smurthwaite, an Australian native, got the inspiration for Bodega on Main after traveling through Spain and discovering the excitement at restaurants that offered small plates to share. The menu at Bodega on Main includes chicken croquettes, patatas bravas, albondingas beef and pork meatballs, lollipop lamb chops with chimichuri sauce and paella for two or four people. It also has a full bar that serves wine, beer and cocktails, including sangrias. Bodega on Main has no connection to Salt Lake City's Bodega or its underground restaurant The Rest.

Hugo Coffee Roasters • The Hugo Coffee Shop inside the Park City Visitor's Center in Kimball Junction has expanded into a small-batch coffee roasting company. Owner Claudia McMullin, a Park City lawyer and member of the Summit County Council, hired head roaster John Lynn, formerly of Silver Bean Coffee, to create the company's roasted coffee blends and single-origin specials. The name for each offering has gone to the dog, specifically Hugo, the dog McMullin rescued from an animal shelter. Coffees include: "Bonafide" dark roast; "New Trick" light roast; "Downward Dog" decaf; and "Howler" espresso. The fresh-roasted coffee is available in 12-ounce bags for $13.99. It's also sold to restaurants and other wholesale accounts.
