The Sundance restaurants' unique culinary approach stresses the use of natural, seasonal ingredients, and dishes are often prepared with such locally raised products as cornfed lamb, fresh trout or chicken, and lots of seasonal fruit and vegetables. Dinner reservations are recommended, particularly in season. Full liquor service is available.

The Tree Room (tel. 801/223-4200 for reservations), the resort's most elegant dining room for over 25 years, is the place for relaxing, romantic dinners with wine and candlelight. Decorated with American Indian art and artifacts from Redford's private collection, the rustic room seats diners in cozy booths and at intimate tables. Seasonal menus might include wild Alaskan salmon with collard greens and roasted beets, grilled buffalo tenderloin with wild mushroom au gratin, and a signature pepper steak with buttermilk mashed potatoes and mango chutney. It's open daily from 5pm, with dinner entree prices from $25 to $45.

The Foundry Grill (tel. 801/223-4220), a less formal eatery offering seasonal ranch-style cuisine, serves three meals Monday through Saturday and brunch and dinner on Sunday. Wood is the predominant feature in both decor and food -- a wood oven and wood-fired grill and rotisserie are the main cooking methods. Lunch main courses range from $10 to $17; dinner entrees run $12 to $35.

The Owl Bar (tel. 801/223-4222) is just next door. This is the same 1890s bar frequented by Butch Cassidy's Hole-in-the-Wall Gang, moved here from Wyoming -- but now locals and resort guests belly up to the Victorian rosewood bar to order their favorite tipple. A limited grill menu is available; it's open from 5pm weekdays and noon weekends.
