The spouse and I happened upon The Brasserie & Neighborhood Cafe at Parish while enjoying a leisurely Saturday. We decided to give it a try, as we had never been there before.
The eatery was lovely and had lots of personality and made us feel as though we were on vacation in another country.
We were greeted and asked if we had reservations. We responded that we didn’t and were about to leave when the Host took pity on us, saying that he would find a table for us. We were seated right away and placed our drink orders with our server, Maurice. I ordered a Mimosa (Orange), and the spouse ordered a Bloody Mary. We both enjoyed them.
We shared a Parish Pastry Basket (scones, mini muffins, jam and whipped Butter). Everything in that basket was yummy. I ordered the corned beef hash (potato, corned beef, horseradish cream, sunny side up eggs). I ordered my eggs scrambled, as I just don’t like runny eggs. No problem. The potatoes were very crunchy. Even though I love them crispy, these could have been a little bit less so. Having said that, they were still quite good. I was slightly disappointed that there was barely any corned beef among the potatoes, but the eggs were lovely and good, in combination with the rest of the dish.
The spouse ordered the burger (grass fed beef, bentons bacon jam, dijonaise, grilled onion, cheddar, house cut fries). He enjoyed everything on his plate and gave me a taste of his fries. They were quite lovely. I will definitely have those next time.
Bottom Line: I recommend that you give this restaurant a try. I think you will enjoy the food, as well as the experience. We did. Also, it may be a good idea to make a reservation.
