Located on the border of Floral Park and Stewart Manor, Park Place is a charming little restaurant and bar. White lights and dark wood give this restaurant a cozy, yet elegant feel. The innovative menu is a delightful change of pace.
Alex and I started with the Fried Kobe Meatballs served in a Teriyaki sauce with Spicy Mayo. They were absolutely delectable! What a unique and tasty appetizer! For my entrée, I opted for the Whole Wheat Penne with Grilled Chicken, Sun Dried Tomato, Broccoli Rabe, Garlic & Oil. My dish was a nice size portion and presented quite well. It was a bit bland for my taste, but overall I was satisfied. Alex selected the Cavatelli Pasta with Hot Chopped Sausage, Mushrooms, and Cognac Cream Sauce. He remarked that the sauce was delightfully creamy, yet not too heavy and he thoroughly enjoyed the piping hot chopped sausage tossed in.
Some of the entrees we did not select, but I am already eager to go back and sample, include Lobster Mac & Cheese, Tuna Tacos –Tartar and the Kobe Slider Trio. Park Place receives a solid 3.5 Mints on the Dinner Mint Scale. Well done!
