Oct. 9 | Housed in the charmingly historic Knox House on the Town Green in downtown Duluth, a meal at Park Café Restaurant and Wine Market feels like you’re dining at an old friend’s home. The creaking wooden floors once belonged to the town’s first mayor circa 1900; now the wait staff seems to dance, rather than walk, on them as they continue to serve up Southern cuisine with true elegance like they have since 2007.
The Dishes | Fried green tomatoes with warm brie, candied pecans and bacon balsamic emulsion, tomato and goat cheese salad, duck confit pasta, BBQ glazed pork tenderloin and pecan caramel cheesecake for dessert
The Drinks | Park Café proudly stocks its wine inventory from some of the finest personal cellars in the area.
The Deal | As part of downtown Duluth’s weekly “Thirsty Thursday,” Park Café cooks up something fresh: a three-course, prix fixe menu for $25. Enjoy on the veranda with a side of people watching, or take a glass of house Chardonnay or Merlot to go while you stroll the streets for $5. It’s perfect for celebrating special occasions … or creating them. parkcafeduluth.com
