I interrupt our anniversary weekend coverage to bring you Brother Monkey cheer! I know there are many fangirls out there!
BroMo is having a gigantic joint birthday bash tonight. But we celebrated on a much smaller scale on Wednesday night at The Parish, which has moved into the old space of the departed Angelique Cafe.
The Parish purports to "bring you a true twist on the English gastropub."
Translation: British small plates.
Disco Nap -- grappa, aperol, muddled lemon, mint ($16).
Black Bee -- bourbon, lemon juice, honey, stout ($12).
Deviled eggs ($6).
Grilled corn with honeycomb butter ($6).
Poutine of crispy pork shoulder with paneer, mint, and peas ($14).
Haricots verts, grilled peaches, garam masala, burrata ($13).
Mojama, duck egg, truffle, potatoes ($16).
Fish and chips ($20).
Telegraph porter sausage, pickled cherries, parsnip puree ($14).
Meat pie -- braised beef, Stichelton, escarole ($20).
Fried chicken, grilled peaches, tomatoes, and currant vinaigrette ($23).
The Parish is off to a good start, and I can confidently state that somebody in the kitchen is a master fryer. I hope I'm not too full to try dessert next time. Happy birthday, BroMo!
