Off the Menu: Lobster Tortellini at PARK
Looking for a secret, off-menu item? There's an app for that. No, seriously: the Grafton Group, the team behind Grafton Street, Temple Bar, Russell House Tavern and PARK, just introduced a mobile app for iPhone and Android that allows users a unique way to connect with the restaurants and the neighborhood. The app (available for free here) lets you make reservations, view updated menus and food photos, and access exclusive discounts. But it also includes information beyond the individual restaurants; by teaming with HarvardTour.com, the app provides trivia and social media updates related to a multitude of businesses and organizations in the 'hood. And there's one more perk: By making a reservation via the app (and including a note about being a new user), you'll be rewarded with a different off-menu appetizer. At PARK, that's the native Lobster tortellini with English peas and lemon-butter sauce (pictured). There, we spilled one. The other three spots? You'll have to bite the mobile bait to find our for yourself.
