Saying Goodbye to ”Park Avenue Autumn – Winter” Hello ”Spring”

I liked the overall theme of changing decor and menu based on the season. Four of us were here for ”winter” during Restaurant Week’s (three course lunch $25). Park Avenue Spring has débuted a few weeks after my visit. Over a forty-eight hour timeframe, the restaurant was completely transformed from ”Park Avenue Winter” to a completely new décor for ”Spring” 🙂
