An extraordinary dining experience is to embark on a journey. We have created a beautiful place in an extraordinary setting and have tended to the details that make you feel at home: staff who care, chefs who are passionate about quality and the regional seasonal ingredients that bring to your palate a taste of place.

Picnic in the Park


Throughout the summer season River Café offers picnic baskets filled with all the seasonal specialties from our kitchen and bakery. 
A perfect suggestion for guests looking to enjoy a leisurely afternoon at Prince's Island Park or planning to bike the city's pathway system. 

Boxwood Closing Saturday August 13th

We are closing out doors and our last day of service will be Saturday August 13th, 2016.

A newly imagined restaurant concept in Central Memorial Park will open in the Fall. We invite you to join us at Boxwood, on the patio – which is in full bloom – or at the kitchen counter for a delicious, fresh, local lunch, brunch or dinner until our very last day.  Together we can celebrate our vibrant Boxwood community one more time.

Visit our Website for more details.

Find us in Central Memorial Park, in the Beltline district.

Cheers to friends, food and music.
