Who knew glamping could get even more glamorous?
This North Park restaurant is taking the irresistible outdoorsy trend to entirely new heights. Total lovers of the outdoors, owners of One Door North designed the eatery to be an ode to nature.
The second guests walk through the door, they are greeted by the warm glow of lanterns and string lights. The restaurant uses a lot of natural materials like wood and metal, and it’s all set against the backdrop of a forest-themed wall lined with tents – yes, tents – which guests can reserve for a unique private dining experience.
The restaurant also has a large outdoor space complete with a fire pit, string lights, picnic tables, tiki torches and plenty of greenery, where guests can enjoy the fresh air while they dine. Guests’ furry friends are also welcome to soak in the outdoors.
It’s a lovely escape from the daily grind where you can come relax and unwind, reminded of the soothing beauty of nature through each element of the decor. And we haven’t even gotten to the food!
Chef and owner of the restaurant Fred Piehl, who also owns The Smoking Goat next door, wanted to try a new concept that would wow the neighborhood and instill a sense of adventure. The focus is on simple and local ingredients, offering guests delicious farm fresh bites in a peaceful and inviting atmosphere.
“We take pride in sourcing our products locally, responsibly, and sustainably, which means guests can expect an ever-changing menu of delicious dishes. We find joy in the handcrafted detail in order to yield a more flavorful dish,” he says.
The menu is overflowing with tasty American favorites like cornbread muffins, grilled fish tacos, stone baked flatbreads and macaroni and cheese. There’s even a roast-your-own s’mores platter in keeping with the glamping theme.
A long list of craft cocktails, local craft beer and classic wines also gets guests’ attention. A few interesting craft cocktails to try include the Sequoia, Chupacabra and the Fireside Tahona.
In keeping with Covid safety regulations, One Door North is currently open for dine-in in their outdoor patio and take-out.
