The Park gets beer and wine!

Congrats to Echo Park's the Park for hanging in there long enough to get a beer and wine license. The restaurant was operating under the difficult condition of not being able to let patrons bring in wine, a nearly catastrophic condition which they solved by hosting reservation-only supperclubs and speakeasys. They'll still be offering the Tuesday and Friday prix fixe menus as well as Wednesday burger night. I've always like the Park's approach to well-prepared food at prices just right for the neighborhood, and the wine and beer make it that much better.
Here's the beer list for now:
Spaten $4
Cucapa Honey Ale $4
Affligem Blonde $5
St Peters Organic English Ale $7
Hitachino Nest White Ale $8
North Coast Old 38 Stout $6

Wines start at $6 a glass with most bottles in the $25 range.

Tonight's menu features grilled sweetbreads with smoked salt, marinated persimmon salsa and pupusa at $20 for three courses.
Tuesday Nov. 17 is Japanese-inspired, with 3 courses for $15, including:
miso soup or creamy cabbage and pear salad, chicken or tofu oka-san with gingered spinach and warm sushi rice and creampuffs.

The Park is at 1400 Sunset, near Dodger Stadium.

I'm somewhat confused here. The link for The Park goes to a canning blog. Is that right? And there's no reference to location or anything, but the food sounds amazing. Especially for the price. I'd love to check this place out.

Oh, and this is by far the best food blog I've discovered in LA. Immense thanks for the excellent work.

Sorry, I was linking too fast, it's fixed now. Added location. Food there is really good for the price, and thanks for reading.

Laurel Canyon makes the West Side and Park about the same distance. I go east. Spectacular always.
