Envisioned as a year-round space that communicates with surrounding nature and provides a welcoming place to eat, drink and and host intimate events, Park by Sidewalk Citizen is truly a treat for the senses.

Tucked along the edge of Central Memorial Park, the restaurant’s solarium is an award-winning structure that pays homage to the park’s past, integrating design elements from the nearby library and the park’s century-old “Garden Rooms,” which were used for courting in Victorian times. Washed in soft diffused light (which translates to gorgeous photos), the space has always been a place for romance.

Inspired by the bustling food markets of the Mediterranean and made with local ingredients, Park by Sidewalk Citizen’s menu is designed to be shared and eaten communally — truly perfect for the bringing together of two families at a wedding celebration., @parkbysidewalk
