The Park Restaurant Review

: Chef Joshua Siegel, who cut his culinary teeth at Bay Area restaurants like Square One and Firefly, runs this community-oriented American bistro near the Echo Park entrance to Dodger Stadium. Siegel hired college buddy Roian Atwood to design the homey space, which features a black and white checkered floor, pistachio-hued walls holding eerily empty frames, and a vintage lamp post. Start with ricotta-stuffed squash blossoms, corn chowder or grilled hamachi collar with ponzu. Hanger steak is served with chimichurri sauce, while cumin-crusted pork belly arrives with peach and avocado “ceviche.” Be on the lookout for the specials board, which might yield a rock cod filet with a light garlic, fennel and grapefruit sauce. What the wine list lacks in depth it makes up for in interest, with small producers from France, Italy, Portugal and Argentina. For dessert, try the flaky butterscotch pudding tart with whipped cream and chunks of almond brittle.
