Chef has created fall off the bone Lodo Red Adobo Spare Ribs, with Georgia Mustard BBQ Sauce or try Pecan Crusted Mountain Trout, with Sautéed Greens.

Welcome to MacArthur Park

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 and its original chef 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.

About Us

Faz Pouroshi, of Faz Restaurants, the original opening chef of MacArthur Park Palo Alto in 1981, put his award-winning ribs on the map cooking his heart out behind the line at the restaurant.

In March of 2008 he approached Chuck Frank, one of the owners of the original restaurant to purchase the space. Frank was already on top of it and together they formed a partnership to renew, revitalize and reboot the historical landmark space.

Historian and author Barbara Wilcox's book explores history of the MacArthur Park Restaurant building.  The subject and title of Barbara’s book is “World War I Army Training by San Francisco Bay: The Story of Camp Fremont”. 

“As the most distinguished artifact of that history, Julia Morgan’s landmark building is a suitable place to honor the engineers, nurses, technicians, drivers and many others who worked not only to win a war but to bring modernity to America”, says Barbara.
