Chicken park was amazing however the waiter persuaded us to order the veal special... he did not say that it was $60 for just the veal and it was not worth it. Very dry, no sauce only a side of arugula( pointless). The service was great and the ambiance was great. For the price we could have gone to Ruth’s Chris or lawrys and gotten soup or salad the main entree and desert for the same price as 1 piece of dry veal. More
