Fodor’s Expert Review
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
Hyde Park is known for it's comfortable neighborhood restaurants, but Park 52 is a bit more sultry than you might expect. The contemporary American menu is at its best with straightforward dishes such as barbecue-braised short ribs, shrimp and grits, and the "samurai" steak—a triple-seared New York strip. It's not exactly the place you'd think to bring your kids, but they do have a children's menu. On the first and third Wednesday of the month there is live music at night. Order a strong cocktail, settle into one of the velvet-covered chairs, and listen to live music floating down from the balcony.
