Edison Place on Urbanspoon

The corner of 71st Place and Cooper Avenue in Glendale has a long history of good food and great beer — now that historic meeting spot is home to a new restaurant looking to carry on that tradition of revelry in the neighborhood.

Edison Place opened this past March with a nod to the past, but an eye to the future. It is the perfect neighborhood spot for a drink at the bar, dinner with family or a special date, and it features an eclectic menu that will please all eaters.

The menu is straightforward and to the point – it is wonderfully stark with just the right amount of appetizers and entrees, and is absent of the sloppy hodgepodge that crowds the menus of other restaurants and gastro-pubs.

All of the starters sound incredible, but definitely don’t miss the Crackling Pork Belly served with granny smith apple and jalapeno compote. The pork belly, unctuous and salty, will turn up the salivary glands while the compote cuts through and provides a balanced flavor. The Edison Place Crab Cakes are another wise decision – full of crab and very little cake, these starters are panko-breaded and served with Savoy cabbage slaw and a flavorful horseradish dill sauce.

Other enticing appetizers include Crispy Mushroom Tart, House Cured Salmon Gravlox and Grilled Duck and Cherry Sausage.

For entrées, each dish is more drool-inducing than the last – with hearty and meaty options just waiting to slow you down and stick to your ribs. The absolute must-eat entrée is without a doubt the Crispy Pork Shank. This monstrous meat dish looks and smells amazing – and it is even acoustically amazing as running a knife through it elicits an audible crackle. The meat is sinfully tender and as the juice runs down your chin, you’ll be awash in appreciation for life itself.

Those looking for something a little lighter should try the Pan Roasted Orange Roughy – a medium-sized fish with a tasty white flesh. It’s prepared with a surprising French finesse and served with julienned spring vegetables, shrimp dumplings and lemon chive beurre blance.

Other entrees include Herb Crusted Rack of Lamb, Duck Two Ways and Smoked Bacon-Wrapped Filet Mignon. Also, check out Edison’s daily specials: chicken pot pie on Monday, loin of pork on Tuesday, Yankee pot roast on Wednesday, turkey dinner on Thursday, lobster pot pie on Friday, Beef Wellington on Saturday and prime rib on Sunday.

Make sure you save room for dessert because Edison Place boasts options including Linzertorte pie, black forest cake and homemade apple strudel.

Edison Place is the perfect spot for all occasions. With 20 beers on tap, including local craft brews, and HD TVs, it’s a great hangout spot – but the food sets it apart and makes it a destination for eaters of all ages.

They also feature a dinner and a show once a month – the next one is a Murder Mystery Night on Friday, October 28.
