PARK Restaurant & Bar is the newest member of the esteemed Grafton Group restaurant family which consists of the nearby Russell House Tavern, Grafton Street Pub, and Temple Bar. Located on JFK St. in bustling Harvard Square, PARK’s vibe is the neighborhood bar and restaurant of today, offering new interpretations of classic American fare with interesting libations.
Being fans of the other restaurants in the Grafton Group family, we were excited to try the confit chicken wings with sambal and honey glaze on PARK’s menu. We’ve never seen sambal, a spicy Indonesian condiment made up primarily of red chilies, fish sauce, and garlic, used on chicken wings before.
The unique wings arrived to our table and we couldn’t help but savor the delicious Asian flavors that danced on our tongue with each bite. The wings were crispy, salty, spicy and sweet all at the same time, with just enough heat to make the back of your mouth tingle.
With the ever perennial favorite BonChon so close by, you might not go out of your way for the wings at PARK, but should you find yourself there enjoying a cocktail with a group of friends, do us a favor and order the wings. We promise you won’t be disappointed.
