Description
Located in Harvard Square, PARK is a modern neighborhood restaurant/bar designed to suit today's drinking and dining needs. A place to grab a quick after-work drink or bite, enjoy a leisurely dinner, linger over cocktails, or spend an entire night, PARK offers a variety of experiences that will feel unique depending on which of the four distinct spaces you're seated. With an eclectic design aesthetic, PARK is stocked with rousing conversation pieces that range from counter-culture artwork from the 1960s to antique book-lined shelves and a trophy case brimming with myriad oddities. Not to be outdone, Executive Chef Mark Goldberg brings a spirited sense of interpretation to PARK's New American menu of homey classics, including Sunday Brunch, which are served alongside an internationally-inspired collection of craft cocktails, beer and wine.
