Nestled among the skyline of Atlanta, the shadows of Inman Park, and the warm glow of the impending apocalypse, Park's Edge restaurant is a delightful oasis of exotic cuisine, sultry music, and wet drinks. Chef Jorge Pacheco's Mexico City influences and owner Richard N. Wadlington Beverly Hills-residing, jazz-loving background give Inland Park a restaurant with culinary punch and stylish, West Coast flair. It's the perfect venue to bask in contemporary elegance while rattling off obscure Spider-Man references without fear of ridicule.
The bold and spicy menu is packed with enough innovative dishes to satisfy any palette. Start your feast with the pan-seared crab cake or the savory duck quesadilla with pineapple salsa. When you're ready to move on to the hunger-quashers, try the sesame grilled salmon (ginger sticky rice, strawberry red onion ragu, and green curry butter), the airline chicken breast (truffle mashed potatoes and chef's daily vegetables), or the vegetarian-friendly pan-seared tofu stir-fry (seasonal local vegetables, edamame, corn, citrus soy sauce, and buckwheat noodles).
Park's Edge also features a full-service, top-notch bar. Pick your poison: a seductive cocktail like the butterfly margarita or a beverage from its extensive collection of international wines and specialty beers (each bottle is flown in daily on its own cargo plane). Check out the full bar menu for more refreshing options.
People rave about Park's Edge. Sneaky Sunday's Blog calls it a "hidden gem":
- Not only was the service impeccable so were the pricepoints and food. They have an amazing ambiance right along one of Atlanta’s coolest parks. We can’t wait to get back there (especially when it warms up to chill on their patio). Definitely worth the trip for a date, gathering or last minute meal fix.
- Loved the atmosphere! It was very elegant yet very relaxed. The service was tremendous-very friendly. The food was absolutely perfect. – ktoles, Citysearch
- Each entree was perfectly cooked and skillfully presented with excellent wine. The hostess and wait staff were friendly and responsive, even as the restaurant became full. Our food was hot and served promptly. As for ambience, the ecclectic [sic] jazz music provided a warm compliment to the restaurant's contemporary Italian design. – OpenTable user
Park's Edge: The Movie
When blockbuster Hollywood movie director Michael Bay recently ate at Park's Edge, he immediately recognized the restaurant's R-rated action-film potential. He chose to focus on the unique pair that makes Park's Edge such a success: chef Jorge Pacheco, from Mexico City, and owner Richard N. Wadlington, from Beverly Hills. Here is the transcript of the first trailer for the upcoming film, entitled Park's Edge:
One is from Beverly Hills. The other from the mean streets of Mexico City. They're both cops. Meet Detective Jorge Pacheco. He's got street smarts to spare, but he meets his match in Detective Richard N. Wadlington, the jazz-loving smooth operator from Beverly Hills. When a notorious serial killer targets New York's Central Park, they'll find that some secrets should stay hidden. Park's Edge—when you live on the edge, your only option...is action.
