A Supplication to Wayward Eaters
Long have you wandered in a gluttonous wilderness of Fatburger and greasy takeout.
Return to your foodie flock, prodigal locavores.
Let The Tasting Kitchen’s Casey Lane lead you back onto the path of righteous eats at his new downtown gastropub, The Parish.
Opening Friday (now taking reservations), the bilevel restaurant is salvation in a shepherd’s pie. With breezy dual patios, floor-to-ceiling windows, and vintage-inspired decor (leather wingback chairs, antique maps), its divinity is in its details.
Start your mornings in the cheery downstairs cafe with Handsome Coffee java and maple bacon beignets (available for takeout).
Evenings, congregate upstairs for Lane’s elevated, market-driven take on British fare (grilled corn, burger with epoisse, chicken liver mousse with onion rings) washed down with craft beers and cocktails by bar star John Coltharp (Seven Grand).
Lane prophesizes full breakfast and lunch menus.
The Parish, 840 South Spring Street, between West Eighth and West Ninth Streets, Downtown (213-225-2400 or theparishla.com).
