Park and Oak Restaurant

On a cold and chilly afternoon I needed some comfort food so headed to an old favorite where I knew I could get what I needed, Park and Oak. Ordered a glass of Blood Orange Cider and ‘FREE BIRD’ CHICKEN AND WAFFLES [$17] with coleslaw, P&O maple-bourbon syrup. Somehow thought this would not be enough so ordered an appetizer I have been wanting to try CT “DEVILED” EGGS [$8] Park & Oak pimento cheese, crispy parmesan. The entrée was just as good as I had remembered it and the app was super filling and tasty.

blognote: the parking lot entrance has changed to Park Road with exit to Oak...what a difference!

Haven't been back here for five or so months so went and had a great lunch today.

This is the THE TONY-D SANDWICH [$13] filled with fried chicken, melted muenster cheese, sweet & spicy pepper jelly, tomatoes on a soft roll. Very good!

Still choosing from the menu at Park and Oak and am still satisfied. This time we split the Wild Mushroom Bruschetta [$9.95] which was absolutely fine and I had the Oyster Po'Boy Sliders [$11.95] so crunchy, so munchy. The Tomato Soup was homemade but didn't excite me that much. The Brussel Sprouts were even better than the last few times! And the Signature Negroni [$9] is still the best in town.

Third visit even better! This is becoming habit forming [and I have a reservation for next Thursday!].

Had the same Brussel Sprouts and the Fresh goat cheese flatbread, asparagus, fig puree, sherry reduction  [$9.95] both were excellent and the fig purée on the flatbread was delicious. Went well with their Signature Negroni. There was a Duck Breast special as an entrée so had the duck transferred to a roasted red beets, green apple, goat cheese, arugula, champagne vinaigrette Salad [$25] and this turned out to be a super combo! The duck breast was large, succulent and very tasty! An excellent pour of Barbera added to the deliciousness of the meal.

Second visit just as successful as first. I had another Negroni [$9] followed by a shareable plate of Pan roasted Brussel Sprouts, candied bacon, pickled red onion, sambal aioli $[6.95] which was super delicious and the very tasty slow roasted beef brisket Sliders, tomato-chipotle jam, smoked maple cheddar [$9.95]

Wonderful dinner at the new Park and Oak Restaurant in West Hartford tonight after the super play, Sunset Baby, at Theaterworks in Hartford. One Shrimp and Grits [delicious], two Baskets of Fried Chicken and my Chicken and Waffles [$15.95] with excellent coleslaw and bourbon-maple syrup. This was the best of this meal I have ever had! Started with a Negroni on my never ending Negroni search [this one had Aperol]. Ended with a shared warm Chocolate Bread Pudding with Pistachio Ice Cream. 

blognote: I will definitely go back!!! and recommend it highly for its excellent food, good service and very nice people.
