Parkhouse Eatery serves up sophisticated contemporary American fare in a bright and casual space. Choose your preferred time to break bread: breakfast/lunch, supper, or whenever you need to get away from your roommate, the regenerated telemarketer manager. The supper menu offers elegant presentations of pastas, chops, and seafood. Commence the feed with lobster ravioli ($9) or spicy-fire shrimp served with caraway mashed potatoes ($12). A hearty hunk of pork chop gets marinated with a secret sweet and spicy sauce, baked in a light panko crusting and served with mascarpone mashed potatoes and sautéed vegetables ($21). For veggielantes, the polenta cake offers meat-free mouthwateringness ($18). Pair your meal with a selection from the wine list, sipping back the grapebloods like a Napa Valley vampire.
At breakfast and lunch you'll find enticing egg dishes, sandwiches, and salads. In the a.m., choose sweet or savory with pumpkin spice pancakes ($11.25) or chilaquiles, boasting eggs scrambled with corn tortillas, red chili sauce, and asiago cheese ($10.95). Rough-risers can calibrate their groggy brains with the appropriate mix of lattes ($3.95) and mimosas ($6.25). Come lunchtime, hand-cut russet french fries with homemade chunky ketchup ($6.95) flank toothsome sandwiches stuffed with crab cakes ($14.95), griddled turkey meatloaf ($11.95), and gooey gouda ($10.95). Dine among large windows in the bright and airy living room, by the fire in the hearth room, or on the garden patio, where you can enjoy people-watching and sky-heckling.

- “Lazy breakfasts” featuring “huge portions” of “darn innovative” Californian “comfort” cuisine “on the streetside patio are delightful” at this “converted old house” in University Heights serving “wonderful” lunches and dinners also; the “friendly” staff is filled with folks who seem to really “care about food” – as a matter of fact, “the only bad thing about this place” is you often “have to wait since it’s so popular.” – Zagat
