Paul Martin’s American Grill
The restaurant boasts more than 6,000 square feet and features a menu of contemporary American dishes utilizing the finest seasonal produce, seafood from sustainable fisheries, and free-range meats and poultry.
In addition, the space includes a large bar area and outdoor patio (that holds 44 people), perfect for happy hours and seasonal entertaining. Speaking of Happy Hour, you'll want to take advantage of shared plates that range from $5-$13 and signature cocktails every day from 3-8pm.
"(Some) of the kitchen’s best efforts appear at the bookends of the meal. Cocktails are shaken, stirred and muddled with care. The chocolate ice cream, served as part of a trio of flavors, is sticky and chewy and altogether delicious, the result of employing an egg-rich custard base and deep, dark Colombian chocolate," said Mike Hiller from Escape Hatch in his review, "I had low expectations for this dark-wood, tall-ceilinged, open-kitchen California interloper. But now that I’ve eaten there, I’m sold. The southern edge of Highland Park is lucky to have this neighborhood gem." I have to agree with him, that ice cream was pretty darn delicious.
