Park Chow has something for everyone: great food; outside dining (heated!); a cozy fire for indoor eaters; high chairs for pint-size diners; an impressive selection of freshly squeezed juices; and fabulous desserts.
The atmosphere is bustling and comfortable. Accommodating servers answer questions about the menu, which pulls together some of the best dishes from a variety of cuisines (mainly Asian, Italian and American). For smaller appetites, there's a list of smaller entrees (e.g. pizza by the slice or a bowl of homemade soup).
Diners young and old - including sometimes vocal toddlers - enjoy Park Chow, so the restaurant can be on the noisy side. But it's fun! While not specifically designed for kids (no kids' menus, no crayons), the restaurant definitely welcomes the younger set.
Since Park Chow is only half a block away from the Lincoln Street entrance to Golden Gate Park, families might consider combining lunch with a visit to Strybing Arboretum.
Located between Lincoln and Irving Streets. Parking can be a challenge, but check out nearby streets in Golden Gate Park. Or take Muni metro N-Judah, or Muni bus 16AX, 16BX.
Muni: N Judah, 44 O'Shaughnessy, 6 Parnassus
