Parc recalls the chic brasseries of Paris, serving traditional bistro fare in a charming space. This restaurant pays honor to French café culture, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week. It’s an ideal stop for a quick bite or a romantic meal.
The menu is filled with classics such as their infamous onion soup, escargots, and steak frites. The bread is made in-house and is the perfect companion to their charcuterie (artisanal cured meats, country pâté, chicken liver parfait) platter. Parc also has a very diverse selection of wines, offering a variety of sparkling, white, rosé, and red. Sip a Kir Royale at the original zinc bar or just enjoy a café au lait while sitting outside. Parc offers a perfect experience any time of day for any occasion.
Parc is a very popular place to during the dinner hours. The restaurant is filled with guests having dinner or drinks. Parc recommends you make a reservation, because there is usually a wait time to have dinner. The inside of the restaurant makes you feel like you are visiting a café in Paris. The atmosphere is very welcoming and comfortable. The wait-staff are very friendly and check on you constantly to make sure you have everything you need, refreshing your bread and water without request. Their service is wonderful, not only are the servers friendly, but efficient. You don’t have to wait too long before your food arrives. And the food!! The food was unbelievable!
Parc offers a selection of wines and cocktails to try. It was very difficult to decide which cocktails to choose. I usually enjoy a sweet to semi-sweet wine, but Parc does not offer those types of wines, so my friend and I settled on cocktails which were very tasty!

I was incredibly impressed with every aspect of Parc Brassiere. The atmosphere was busy, fun and comfortable; the staff was courteous and efficient; the wait for drinks and food was quick; and everything tasted ridiculously amazing. I personally give Parc five out of five stars and highly recommend considering them for your evening meal the next time you visit Philadelphia. You will not be disappointed.
