MacArthur Park Restaurant

  • Address:
    27 University Avenue
    Palo Alto, CA 94301

MacArthur Park Restaurant, named after a Jimmy Webb song, has been a neighborhood favorite in Palo Alto since it first opened in 1981. Today's MacArthur Park has been reclaimed by its original owner, Chuck Frank, and original chef, Faz Poursohi, with a revitalized menu and a recent renovation of this historical landmark Julia Morgan building.Historical landmarks are permanent sign posts to a culture's community.

This landmark has served the community in many incarnations: as a 1918 Hostess House for visiting families of World War I servicemen, as a community center, a veterans hall, and now, once again, as the new MacArthur Park.

Home is a place you love, and MacArthur Park is pleased to welcome the community back home with new dishes, old favorites and the warmest of hospitality.
