John Warnock Strikes Gold-Again

From the San Jose Mercury News comes a report by columnist Leigh Weimers that John Warnock has won an award not for being a founder of Adobe Systems, Inc. but for having one of the top restaurants in the state of Utah.

The Blue Boar Inn is a four star Inn and Restaurant situated on the edge of the beautiful Heber Valley in the small town of Midway, Utah. Perhaps this is the ultimate Photoshop destination in Utah!

From the Blue Boar Inn web site;

About an hour’s drive from the Salt Lake City airport, The Inn is in a quiet, serene location, and yet close to the night-life in Park City. Located just 20 minutes from the world renowned ski resorts of Park City, Deer Valley, and Sundance, the Inn offers the advantages of a peaceful atmosphere with the close proximity to some of the best outdoor activities in the world.

In addition, the Inn is just six miles from the Nordic venue of the 2002 Olympic Games, and 25 minutes away from the Slalom, Giant Slalom, Jumping and Bobsled venues.

In the summer months, the Blue Boar is adjacent to two breathtaking golf courses, having a total of 54 holes, and is located near the best fly fishing in the country.

Each of the 14 rooms of the Inn are exquisitely, and uniquely decorated, with fireplaces, full bathrooms, TV, and telephones in each room.

The restaurant has won numerous awards over the years. You can check out the sample menu (specials change daily).

Room rates vary from $150 to $295 including breakfast and they also have a relaxing pub named Tuffle Hollow.

Truffle Hollow is a wonderful walnut panelled room, reminiscent of an English pub that can be used by our guests to relax and enjoy the view or the old-world ambiance of our Utah inn. Whether for brunch, lunch or dinner, this intimate room can be used for private parties or business meetings. It includes an audio system and a drop-down flat panel television, charming french bistro tables and a 16th century bar.

This isn’t the first “Best of State” award. The inn has won previously for;
1. Best Bed and Breakfast
2. Best European Cuisine.
3. Best Place for a Wedding.
