Ralph's on the Park Restaurant Review

: Restaurateur Ralph Brennan’s smartest innovation at his Mid-City establishment was the introduction of a small-plates menu, which is offered in addition to entrées. The former may include duck-and-strawberry salad, fried smoked oysters, slow-cooked pork belly and cane-glazed shrimp, while the latter run the gamut from a lamb T-bone to country-fried chicken. Bananas Foster banana bread pudding proves there indeed is something new that can be done with bread pudding. But for real chocolate lovers, the “Chocolate Bar” is a must: Swiss dark and milk chocolate, chewy caramel and a chocolate pecan cookie crust, served with vanilla bean ice cream. The wine list balances interesting small-lot wines from the world over with a smartly selected list of drinkable California brand name selections. Pay special attention to the “Unusual Suspects” section where you might even run across something as rare as a 1993 Duckhorn Cabernet. Pricey? Yes, but you deserve it, don’t you? Reserve a window seat overlooking the park, or settle in at the bar.
