Whether I am welcoming guests at the restaurant, designing menus, promoting live music, producing a CD or writing a new book, Croce’s Park West is the center of my community and business. Croce’s Park West, our newest restaurant, located in Banker’s Hill, offers a welcoming retreat for our neighbors and visitors. The Expatriate Room, where Live Music is played, showcases memorabilia of my late husband, singer-songwriter, Jim Croce.

If you have any questions, or would like to share any stories or memories, please write me.

Warm Regards,
Ingrid Croce
