Park Here

September 16, 2010

Last night my friend and I visited Park’s Edge for the first time. 

We were blown away.

The owner led us to our table {we chose to dine al fresco} which was elegantly set with a white tablecloth and cayenne colored napkins — perfect for fall! 

After allowing us to sample a few pinots before selecting our favorite, our server started us out with a basket of crusty french bread and a head of roasted garlic.  Marvelous.

Soup du jour

We both ordered the soup of the day, a heavenly bowl of pureed spinach topped with a cold salad of onion, tomato, cremini mushrooms and lamb juice, amongst other ingredients.

 We split the Chicken Chili Roll as an appetizer

Finally, I ordered the Heirloom Tomato Salad and could only muster about two bites — I was already stuffed!  However, the wedges of green and red tomatoes atop greens with thick slices of mozzarella was not only pleasing to palette, but also the eye.  Note: I had already embarrassed my companion enough with the brilliant BB flash, so I refrained from snapping a pic of my entree.  Camera = in the shop. Still.

Towards the end of the meal, Chef {another owner} Jorge stopped by our table to chat and enquire about our meal {which was perfection, btw}. Impressive.

Needless to say, we did not order dessert.

However, we will be back for brunch.  Per Chef Jorge the Crab Cake Eggs Benedict and Chilaquiles with a Fried Egg are TDF. 

Oh, and the bottomless Mimosas and Bellinis on the weekends are the perfect hangover cure.  Go get one.
