I've heard good things about Park Ave. in Stanton, and finally went today. The decor is very cool; upscale 60's coffeshop. The attention to detail stands out to me, from the dishes with their name on them (very retro!) to the silverware, and even to the menu. I like that cohesive sense of style.
The place reminds me of a kind of lower end Houston's. (I could see them following the Houston's route with many locations.)
**Now to the food**
*Lobster & Corn fritters $7.95--delicious--light and very flavorful
*Home made Idaho Potato Chips with Ranch Dressing $3.95. Really hit the spot.
*Breast of Chicken layered with maple ham, cheese, and a sage sauce. $7.95 Small, but very tasty.
*Belgium Beef Stew $8.95 Kind of like beef bourg. "lite" served over egg noodles. Homey & good.
*Cheese & Bacon Omlette. $6.95 This was the "weakest link". Way small and very little cheese.
We also ordered three desserts.
*The Frosty Mocha was refreshing
*The Chocolate Sundae with a Creamy Marshmallow Topping was great. (The granola on top totally clashes with the flavors though.)
*The Peach Cobbler would have been good if they hadn't used a Bisquick like dough. I had forgotten how horrible Bisquick tastes. (When I took that top layer off, I enjoyed the cobbler.)
*They have a great hibiscus tea too.
All in all, a really great experience. I wish this was 2 minutes from my house--I'd be there quite often!
