Giorgio Rapicavoli of Eating House is responsible for what’s on your plate here. “Here” being the iconic Glass House in Peacock Park. The one that sat shuttered for a while, just pleading for someone to come along and apply a little elbow grease to its floor-to-ceiling windows. To weave a few vines through its roof and to plop a 24-seat bar in the middle of it all. Good news: someone did.
There’s no way around the classic date-night scenario. The soft glow of the pendant lights will set the mood pretty well. But there’s a 28-ounce bone-in ribeye with truffle butter and a bucatini with rock shrimp that’ll help with that sort of thing, too.
And sure, wine would be a good call with all of the above. But so would the Parkside Sour with gin, celery, cucumber and Thai basil. You might even think of it as a spiked salad.
