Park Place Tavern
The kitchen staff at Park Place Tavern thinks that even night owls shouldn’t be forced to make do with basket after basket of greasy bar food. Inside the neighborhood pub, old black-and-white photos look down on tables laden with scallops, shrimp marinated in garlic butter, and grilled sirloin tips. A new deck outside puts diners in easy reach of sea breezes drifting in from the bay just two blocks off, and live music lets the marine life hear something other than sea chanteys for a change. On weekends, chefs fire up the kitchen for breakfasts of croissant sandwiches and stuffed french toast at 7 a.m., and doors stay open until 1 a.m. seven days a week.
