Skipping a Turn at Park Place

The upscale Park Place restaurant, located at Slugger Field, will close temporarily after Friday night for some remodeling work. Sam Rechter, the majority owner of Park Place and the Browning’s restaurant next door, said the place was due for some sprucing up. He said it would re-open Oct. 8 with a refreshed look and perhaps some new menu items. The owners are studying the idea of later hours as well.

The restaurant, which opened originally as Wellinghurst’s, has operated as Park Place on Main since 2004. when famed local chef Anoosh Shariat took over the kitchen.

Shariat left a few months ago, but the product that comes out of the kitchen hasn’t missed a beat.
