Tavern at the Park Restaurant Review

: With its central downtown location just off Michigan Avenue and views of Millennium Park and the Chicago skyline, Tavern at the Park definitely has the location angle in place. From the same team behind steakhouse Keefer’s, the restaurant concentrates on classic American, Italian-inflected cuisine with contemporary twists. As for the setting, it’s reminiscent of Frank Lloyd Wright. On offer are ubiquitous sliders, but here they’re stuffed with prime rib and paired with Fontina fondue and served on onion rolls. Crispy, Parmesan-coated meatballs with vinegar peppers and tomato sauce are hardly ordinary either. Portions are large, but sharing is encouraged --- a good idea with rich appetizers, such as the blue cheese bread pudding and margherita flatbread. The downstairs bar is a popular spot for the after-work set. The moderately priced, California-heavy wine list is probably a factor.
