Having worked together since meeting in 1996, Chef Jorge I. Pacheco and Owner Richard
N. Wadlington, Jr. bring vibrant energy and style to their newest entrepreneurial partnership,
Park’s Edge Contemporary Cuisine and Lounge.
Born in Mexico City, Jorge was raised amongst the bold flavors and spices of his mother’s and
grandmother’s kitchens. Learning how to cook at a young age, Jorge fell in love with the culinary
world. Dining out was a cornerstone of his upbringing and these experiences were always infused
with culture, family and an unabated passion for life. When Jorge was sixteen he and his family
moved to California where he would meet his future business partner, Richard.
Originally from Beverly Hills, California, Richard was raised in a family with deep ties to the
entertainment industry. Early in his life, Richard was imbibed with a deep appreciation for jazz,
social atmospheres and the finer things in life. An instinctive businessman and world traveller with
roots both in Los Angeles and New York, Richard is the consummate host and he is delighted
to bring his expertise to the hospitality industry.
Since the beginning of their friendship Richard has always admired Jorge’s enthusiasm and
intuitive knowledge of fine cuisine. While traveling through Europe, Jorge and Richard were
deeply impressed with the European lifestyle and its emphasis on food and family. Reminded of
his childhood in Mexico City, Jorge was inspired and committed to pursue his culinary vision.
Richard and Jorge’s shared values and genuine love for entertaining, good food and strong
relationships are realized in their first Atlanta establishment, Park’s Edge. They have infused
Park’s Edge not only with their energy and passions, but also with an honest appreciation and
love for Atlanta and the Inman Park neighborhood. The menu is a diverse range inspired by Old
and New World dishes and enlivened by the bold spices of Jorge’s Latino roots. Capturing the
color and eclectic attitude of the neighborhood and adding the flavor of their West Coast style,
Jorge and Richard have made Park’s Edge a hidden gem nestled in the heart of Inman Park.
All together a stylish lounge, contemporary restaurant, and secluded neighborhood alcove,
Park’s Edge is truly a unique dining and social experience.
WHERE ATLANTA EATS BRUNCH
Sipping $11 bottomless mimosas and Bellinis under the trees at Inman Park’s most tucked-away spot makes you feel as if you’re in a grown-up tree house. Peaches and cream French toast and chef’s shrimp and grits (served Saturdays and Sundays) remind you that said tree house is in the South.

All is well at this stylish hidden gem that's nestled in the middle of Inman Park. The fusion between the owner's west coast savvy (Richard N. Wadlington)and Chef Jorge I. Pacheco's Latin roots makes this dining location a perfect get away. The dining room ushers in a lounge type atmosphere with moderate contemporary design. It's a great date spot. The service was quick and attentive and once seated the anticipation of the Parks Edge experience post Hell’s Kitchen was mounting. Even though several previously featured fair didn’t make it through the wrath of Hell’s Kitchen...
