The Park Restaurant..need reviews or reccs please!
I have a bunch of family coming in this saturday from LI and NJ and I need a lunch spot, moderately priced. Ive been to Park YEARS ago, but for the club.
How is the food? Is it worth going to?
If not, I would love reccomendations in the chelsea area (american or italian preferably as we're a bunch of itlian women!).
Were heading to the institute of culinary education afterwards for a course so I would like to be in that area.
I have had only bad experiences at the Park - both in terms of food and service. I agree with Lucia -- go to Cookshop or Le Zie. Moran's, though not as great in terms of quality, also has a cozy dining room, a very accessible menu for picky eaters and very nice outdoor seating (depending on the size of your group).
I am glad you are reconsidering the Park as the service there is dreadful and the food barely passable. (Have fond memories of a party held there before it had opened to the public, but thankfully no food was involved.) If you are looking for Italian in that immediate area at a smiliar price, I would go to either Vento or Bottino.
