My parents actually suggested this spot to me and after a little bit of research I was really excited to try "Inman Park's Best Kept Secret". Park's Edge has received rave reviews from Atlanta Magazine and Open Table. Seeing as they are also advertised on Scout Mob I had to try them out. Midtown Atlanta is my playground but rarely do I venture deep into Inman Park. I was delighted to know that Park's Edge is easy to find if you take 75/85 to Freedom Parkway exit. A simple right turn onto North Highland will lead you directly to Bernina Ave where the restaurant is perched on top of a slight hill. There is a nice sized parking lot conveniently connected to the restaurant. I was impressed by the decent sized patio area and sophisticated interior design. The restaurant features both a main dining room as well as a smaller seating section near the bar. My guest and I were happy to dine along side a live jazz singer who played the piano and sang as we ate. I could imagine the wait for a table could get lengthy if you come around prime dinner hours. Thankfully we showed up right around 6:30 pm and had no problem getting a table for 4. We started our meals off with the complimentary bread and whole roasted garlic clove (see picture). In addition we ordered the Crispy Chevre Wonton $7 (wontons filled with spinach, goat cheese filled wontons, spicy red chile and honey) as well as Pan Seared Crab Cakes $8 appetizers. I really enjoyed both appetizers, but should note the portions are only large enough to share 1 app per 2 guest. After our appetizer we started our main dishes which included Grilled Lamb Bone Chops $21 (with Parmesan reggiano risotto and tagine sauce), Sesame Grilled Salmon $17 (with ginger sticky rice, strawberry red onion ragu, green curry beurre blanc) , Citrus Chicken Breast $15 (with spanish rice, sauteed spinach, chipotle cream sauce) and last but not least my choice of Blue Cheese Crusted New York Strip $24 (with yukon garlic mashed potatoes, broccolini, wild mushroom demi glace). All of the food was served in a hefty portion which makes up for the smaller appetizers. I LOVED my steak and all of my guest thoroughly enjoyed their food. Nothing on the desert menu tickled my fancy so we passed. This restaurant is an A+ in my book. It's not extremely pricey (depending on what you order) and is the perfect place for an anniversary date or special evening out. Its sophisticated, sexy and sure to impress your guest!
