Park Grill Chicago Reviews
Sep 03, 2006
This 375 seat restaurant, near Millenium park, always seems to be full of patrons. Though American/Chicago fare,it iswith some new twists on old favorites.
The menu changes seasonally, so this is a wonderful destination for tourists who want to sample local fare. I tried the Tomato Heirloom salad, as these tomatoes only grow in the area, and will be out of season soon. They have an incredibly wonderful, buttery finish. They were served with gorgonzola, onions, and sea salt. Delicious! The server recommended I come back in October to sample the Pumpkin Soup, to whicha local added she comes here just for that.
Overall, you will find the traditional American classics like burgers and club sandwhiches, but they set themselves apart...not to mention, the portions are huge!
The Park grill is also a destination for wine tastings, which are hosted seasonally, and you will find an extensive list on their menu.
Locals and toursits alike talk about the hightlight of the grill being the view. Located on Michigan Ave., you can see the all the busybodies on the street, you can sit outside and do the alfresco dining, see the city sweep out before you.
