A fashionable yet comfortable American bistro and bar, Park Tavern sits on the eastern edge of Washington Square Park. (Some tables have a direct view of the church steps where Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe were married.) The spacious brasserie boasts a market-driven menu of shareable plates, boldly flavored seafood and meat dishes and unique-cum-classic cocktails. Small plates are divided by raw, fried and smoked offerings. Valet parking. Brunch (Sa-Su), L (F), D (nightly).
