I also enjoy visiting the Park Grill, a cozy spot you can relax with good food, drink and a view of the rink. We also ate there just after my wedding proposal and have sat in the same booth every visit. I recently found out there is no corkage fee on Sundays and Mondays, making it a great BYOB spot on those days!
We decided to go to the Park Grill for dinner this past Sunday for our 2nd anniversary dinner. So we called a babysitter for Liljana, grabbed a bottle of wine and headed out. We normally have Dom Perignon for our anniversary drink, but I mistakenly forgot to stock a bottle, so it was time to dig into the stash. Since Blagica was in the mood for red wine, I decided on Colgin Cellars Cariad, a Bordeaux style blend from Napa Valley comprised mainly of Cabernet Sauvignon, with Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It's not an easy wine to find (I bought mine from a liquidation sale), but you could try to get on their ordering list, though it's running 3 years behind!
The Park Grill was steady as always. They have a very good menu featuring local fruits, vegetables, pork, beef and chicken, along with wild caught fish. Service is very knowledgable and attentive, though they seemed thinly stretched as it took around ten minutes before we were initially greeted by our server. They feature a very good cocktail list, beer selection and bar menu, along with $5 food & drink choices in the bar area every Thursday from 5pm-close. Their wine list is a bit pedestrian, with many of your usual suspects, but I see alot of value choices like Newton Chardonnay ($50), Babich Sauvignon Blanc ($39), Peter Lehmann Shiraz ($36), and Chateau Labat Haut Medoc ($48).
All in all, another satisfying experience, made even better with our own wine. Make sure to take advantage of their Sunday/Monday BYOB and enjoy the Millenium Park fun!
