Grant Park
About the restaurant
Grant Park"s Best Kept Secret! A true neighborhood bistro located in Historical Grant Park home to Zoo Atlanta. Historic L.P. Grant Park is located in the southeast quadrant of the city approximately one mile from the gold dome of the state capitol building and six blocks south of I-20. The park is bordered by Boulevard SE on the east, Atlanta Avenue on the south, Cherokee Avenue on the west, Sydney Street on the north and Park Avenue and Berne Street on the northeast. Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979, Grant Park is the result of a gift of 100 acres to the City of Atlanta to be used in perpetuity as a public park. Lemuel Pratt Grant, donated the land and immediately began to subdivide and sell lots around the new park. The surrounding residential area grew up around the park and boasts more than 2,200 late 19th-century and early 20th-century homes and commercial structures.

About the restaurant
According to Zagat, This "excellent" local spot where Va-Highlanders meet is known for its "great patio" and "good, reasonably priced sushi and Thai food"; it's a mystery why it's "rarely crowded", but "those who love it" and want to keep it all to themselves "hope it stays that way."

Disappointing portion size for the $$$. This has consistently gone down, unfortunately. Even the rice to accompany dishes like curry comes in a tiny bowl and they charge you for a second. How expensive is rice? If they are going to continue to hike up prices, portions need to reflect it.

We got the lemon pepper wings and the hot honey char pizza. Both were phenomenal. My daughter got the spaghetti and loved that as well, it tastes like an elevated Spaghetti-o's which in my mind is high praise! They also have a selection of gelato so save room for dessert. The dining space is a little small so if you want a seat get there early. Everyone on the staff was super cool and welcoming. Jeremiah is the man, go with whatever he recommends.

Upon our arrival the music was extremely loud and we asked someone to turn it down . They didn’t understand, and we asked somebody else , who said we had to ask the manager . We finally got someone to turn it down. After that, we sat outside which was lovely . The food made everyone happy , and we agreed we will return . I had a seared tuna salad that I will definitely go back for.

Food was fine Ambience so so, one of the cheaper buildouts I have seen for a PFChang Server: I guess you only have so much to choose from in that area
