Corporate and collegiate crowds come here for flame-roasted rotisserie chicken. – The Scene
Located at the base of College Hill, halfway between the downtown financial district and the collegiate east side, The Parkside is the stomping ground for the thirtysomething corporate crowd as well as younger grad-school types. And what brings these two groups together? Is it the cosmopolitan atmosphere? A desire to bask in one of the few local restaurant scenes that has an urban Manhattan vibe? The mellow James Taylor tunes playing on the stereo? The answer probably isn't as chic as the clientele would like you to believe; plain and simple, it's the chicken.
The Parkside specializes in rotisserie, with an open kitchen set up for mouthwatering viewing from the table. Thanks to a slow-cooking process, the flame-roasted half chicken retains all of its natural juices and flavors, making for one tender bird. Don't miss the fries made with sweet and russet potatoes. Here it's hip to drool.
I'll Park Somewhere Else – I've been here a few times, trying to give it a chance or two to become the resturaunt I want it to be.It doesnt look like its going to happen.
the food is overly spiced. It should be chicken with seasonings, not seasonings with chicken.And just another clue to the wait staff, Wait until the customers finished before taking his meal.
Highly Priced, Poorly Staffed. Ive learned my lesson
Off the beaten path... – More expensive than necessary, but overall good food. The menu is large and I could definatly see myself going back again...as long as the airheaded hostess didn't try to sit us in a back corner again!
