Park Burger in RiNo/Ballpark Will Be the Biggest Yet

Jean-Philippe Failyau is about to open his biggest Park Burger yet, this one in the RiNo/Ballpark neighborhood, with a beefed-up bar lineup and hours -- and live music. Frank Bonanno's one-time right-hand man created his first Park Burger in Platt Park five years ago, then added a Park Burger in Highland, Park & Co. in Uptown, and a Park Burger in Hilltop this spring.

As Jon Solomon reported on our music blog, the plan calls for this Park Burger at 2601 Walnut Street to transition into more of a neighborhood bar as dinner ends. "If you go to any of our Park Burgers, all [of them] fit the neighborhood," he explains. "We wanted to do the same here."

The new spot has 2,400 square feet inside and a 1,700-square-foot patio. Not only does that make it the biggest in the chain, but it will have the biggest selection of beers, with 36 on draft. Watch for the new Park Burger to open next month.
