Cafe Parco: A User’s Guide

Upscale Italian Cuisine | Brunch | Extensive Wine List | BYOB | Outdoor Dining

Sample Menu

  • Appetizer: parco caprese
  • Salad: wild baby arugula with anchovies, parmesan, and pesto
  • Pasta entree: linguine in truffle cream
  • Seafood entree: wild cod with rosemary-dijon potatoes and roasted tomatoes
  • Dessert: candied lemon tart

Where to Sit: In addition to the dining room, there are two outdoor seating areas. If you're a people watcher, ask if there's a table available on the front sidewalk. If you're looking for more privacy (and shade), request to sit in the courtyard under the tree.

Inside Tips

  • Watch your watch. Brunchers get one hour at the table, and dinner diners get two.
  • Cafe Parco has a lengthy wine list, but you're welcome to bring a special bottle from home for a $20 corkage fee.
  • Though there’s no kids’ menu, children are welcome as long as they're well-behaved.
  • If you're not very hungry, or just want to sample a bit of everything, try ordering a few small plates. The chef recommends ordering all the small plates at once, so there's no delay in serving them.
