Park Tavern Restaurant Review

: Piggybacking on the success of Marlowe, a scant little place that barely seats 50, restaurateur Anna Weinberg and chef Jennifer Puccio are now packing them in at spacious Park Tavern in North Beach. There is a long and storied history behind the 110-seat dining room, the former home of Moose's, across the street from Washington Square Park. Design nods include bistro tile flooring, vintage photos and a dedicated bar stool at the restaurant’s Carrara marble bar for late restaurateur Ed Moose. Puccio’s menu is creative, but sometimes over-thought. A fried oysters Caesar dish employs diners to put each bite of oyster, lettuce wrap and dressing together separately to little benefit. The pork chop, while succulent, needs a few more elements to avoid monotony. Bits of grapefruit and puréed cauliflower work well to tame the salt in caramelized sea scallops, but the latter still overpowers. Desserts are endearing, such as a monthly rotating “birthday cake,” wherein the employee celebrating that month’s birthday picks the flavor. Wines have been carefully curated to please both modest and more sophisticated palates. Friday lunch offers a three-course prix-fixe menu drawn from what's fresh at the Marin Farmers Market --- $50 when paired with a martini or rosé. Brunch is very popular.
