G. G. in the Park Restaurant & Lounge was a white tablecloth restaurant operated by brothers Frank and Joseph Brocato in the former Whitworth's in the Park at 3625 8th Avenue South in the Highland Office Park subdivision in Forest Park.

After Joseph Brocato's death in 1972, the business was continued by Frank Brocato. A legal settlement over the nature of the partnership required him to make payments from the restaurant's profits to Leila Brocato, Joseph's widow, and to employ her son, Joseph Brocato Jr, and train him in "all phases of the business". The restaurant was reincorporated in 1988 by Charles Covington Jr.

The building was later occupied by Forest Park Deli and Killarney's Irish pub and restaurant.
