Tavern at the Park

We have friends coming in from Eurpoe for a visit, thinking of going to Tavern at the Park, the new restaurant on Randolph across from Millenium Park. Since it is new, would like to know if any of my fellow chowhounds have been. Any early reviews?

  1. II've tried it. I don't think I'd recommend it for dinner but, if you wanted to stop for a snack and a drink…well…maybe. The location is nice ( you get a good view of the park) but the food was mall food (think Applebee's). It's also surrounded by a put-put golf course, very touristy, but not exactly good food.

      Remoulade - are you sure you're talking about Tavern at the Park in the Prudential Building? There is no putt-putt course there. The putt-putt is over on Monroe I think.

        You're bad. I was thinking of the space on Monroe...I take it all back. Sorry.

        1. There's an early review in today's "Dish" column in Chicago magazine. And it ain't pretty.

          1. Tavern at the Park is great! Went during their first opening week and brought friends the week after. Everyone really liked what they got and the atmosphere is Chicago, so I think it's perfect for out of town guests. Tried the pork chop (which I wouldn't normally order) and it was awesome. Be sure to try the chicken fondue ap. Friendly staff, great service. You'll have a great experience.
