Park Ave in Stanton serves retro American cuisine. The Googie architecture, the swank Rat Pack-inspired interior, the homemade ketchup and the on-site garden wow everyone that goes. Park Avenue seems to favor more rustic loaves and savory crispy planks of toast sliced from a French baguette covered with black pepper and herbs. A fresh-clipped salad of beet leaves, red oak, arugula and mizuna that's usually available year-round might be the only dish in OC that lives up to the title garden salad; It actually came from Slay's garden out back. And after you're done eating, make sure to stroll outside, not just in the lawn but in the garden and its sister restaurant, Il Garage, that is actually inside a turn-of the-century garage. And if there's an antelope steak on the menu, order it: it has an grassy note and an ultra-lean cleanliness on the palate. (Think of the red meat as beef with a personal trainer.)
