Happy Hour 3-6 p.m. daily
The Parish is located in the Pearl but the decor and food will transport you to the south circa 1900's. It has an older southern charm to the interior design. The menu was not too appealing to me. I don't know if it's because I don't have a sophisticated enough palette or what, but I'm not really into eating rabbit, duck hearts, and other animal products I'm not semi-used to. With that being said, there were more traditional foods on the menu like a burger, wedge salad, and shrimp. For drinks they had well drinks for four dollars and discounted beer and wine. I always love it when a happy hour has a house specialty drink, but this place did not, so I just had a glass of wine.
The wedge salad ($4) was okay. The lettuce was not as crisp and fresh as I would have liked, and the dressing was described as a "buttermilk ranch" but was spicy. I didn't mind the spice, but I think it should be mentioned on the menu as a spicy ranch dressing. The salad consisted of the wedge of iceberg lettuce, the spicy ranch dressing, and a soft boiled egg (that was cooked very well) but was missing bacon. The bacon pieces on this salad would have really brought the flavors together. I enjoyed the egg with this salad; it smoothed out the spiciness of the ranch.
