Chicago’s Park 52 is Haute!

An American Bistro in Hyde Park is one of the things that make this cozy Chicago neighborhood Haute! Park 52 is Restaurateur Jerry Kleiner’s latest addition to his long list of cool restaurants like Red Light and Carnivale in the windy city. Each has the Kleiner touch when it comes to décor dramatic lighting, hues of red throughout with a touch of soul.

If you’re living the cosmopolitan life in Chicago… this is the spot for a fabulous meal and meeting place for cocktails and conversation. It’s also blocks away from the Obama house along with a special menu selection celebrating the 44th President and first lady. Park 52 is where the beautiful, sexy people move and shake in Hyde Park just call or text your party and have them meet you at “The Park.”

The menu consists of an array of contemporary dishes like the BBQ Glazed Atlantic Salmon, Roasted Duck Breast and Shrimp and grits. Each selection is flavorful and cooked perfectly. The food is simply good and the service is wonderful.
