I’m afraid to admit that I haven’t been to the re-opened Parkside so I’ll leave the personal experiences up to my fellow readers. Dana Craig of RTD has a review up today and her headline of “Pleasant Parkside needs intensity” sums up her review very well.
Unfortunately, the theme of our entree choices was lack of seasoning. Nothing we tried was bad per se, but each dish fell just this side of flat in the pizzazz category.
Wide ribbons of house-made tagliatelle Bolognese ($9) were topped with plenty of chunky ground beef, but the intense garlic aroma came from the garlic bread. However, the generous portion proved better as leftovers after the flavors had time to mingle.
