When last I talked to Park Burger owner Jean Phillippe Failyau, he hoped to get his restaurant at 1890 South Pearl Street up and running in about a month. That was a month ago.
I just got off the phone with Park Burger kitchen manager Brad Putrycus (formerly chef at Osteria Marco), and it turns out that Failyau's estimate was a little optimistic. They're still waiting on some of the city permits, and those could take another week and a half or two, tops, tPutrycus says.
But aside from the permits, he adds, everything is installed and ready to go.
So look for me to be camped out on South Pearl in early May, because I am very excited for this crew's take on a burger.
