The Foodies’ Park Avenue

Whatever neighborhood people move into, they have to eat. Trending now is what the foodies call the walk. That’s when foodies try everything in every eatery in the area. Lots of cities sponsor this walk each year as a festival. While the are doesn’t have a specific food festival for those living near Park Ave, there’s plenty of varieties of food for the eating and the Park Ave Festival provides plenty of food to choose from.

Park Avenue Pub

Upscale Park Avenue restaurant serving veal, lamb, fish, pork and more. Lots of prosciutto, artichoke and wine sauces. Also offers a three-course meal and an interesting wine list.


Reasonably priced Latin foods. Although heavy on the jalapenos and cilantro, the menu features all the best-loved Mexican fare. A nice selection of fish, too.

Jine’s Restaurant

Billed as a diner, Jine’s features an eclectic selection of American, Italian and Greek specialties. The sidewalk seating might trick visitors into thinking Jine’s is a coffee house or café. Don’t be fooled. The wine list and craft beer selection alone is enough to cancel out the “diner” image.

Marty’s Meats

Just a guy with a food truck, but what a special truck! Customized to his specifications, Marty’s food truck contains a smoker, 40 lb. fryer, flat grill, and a four eye stove and oven. In this equipment, Marty makes magic. Using only the freshest ingredients from local farms and sandwich bread made specially for him, Mary cooks up sandwiches, salads and plates. With cherry peppers. Look for the truck just about anywhere, but also check out the brick and mortar restaurant on Park Avenue.

Great Harvest Bread Company

What if you just want a great cup of coffee and a roll or pastry for breakfast? You’d have to make a run for Great Harvest Bread Company. From a roadside stand selling hand-ground whole wheat bread to a repurposed gas station selling much more, Great Harvest serves breakfast and lunch sandwiches on either your choice of bread or a pannini. Heavy on cheeses and vegetables, you can’t go wrong with your coffee and sandwich.

Mad Hatter Tea Room and Cafe

Fancy tea instead of coffee? High tea is by reservation only here, but the café offers breakfast and lunch. Breakfast consists of fritattas, peach-stuffed challah French toast, your choice of eggs Benedict, homemade pancakes and more. Lunch is typical luncheon fare: soups, salads, panninis and wraps. Breakfast and lunch are served all day on the weekends.

Scratch Bakeshop

Have you already had dinner and are searching for dessert? Scratch Bakeshop has you covered. In the showcase are the pastries and sweets they make; cookies, brownies, cakes and cupcakes. However, if you should need a special event catered in which the boutique bakery can custom-create something for you, then you should see the pictures of their cakes! Stunningly beautiful and probably tastes heavenly. Gluten and dairy free options.

Apogee Wine Bar

Great place for a date, date night or just relaxing with friends. Great wine selection, nice décor, bartenders are great, and just all around a great place to be.
