Description: As more South Americans venture north with their cooking traditions and ingredients in hand, North Americans are getting the chance to sample these new foods and flavors. THE PARVA RESTAURANT BAR & LOUNGE has the Nuevo Latino cuisine as one example of the global gastronomic exchange that happens today, a fusion of traditional Latin flavors with global food trends. The rest of the world has become interested in the cuisines of South America, and new combinations will emerge. But the time-honored culinary traditions of Latin America remain intact. If you have not explored them already, new or old, don't miss out. You will fall in love with South American food. Our Chef now showcase Andean products such as alpaca meat, grains like quinoa and kiwicha, and unusual tubers such as yuca and maca in sophisticated new ways.

Try Parva if you're tired of the usual. A group of us went there and had a great time. It is Latin Fusion, but when you walk in you'd think you were in a Russian restaurant; the decor is all white and silver. Drinks include Brazilian and Latin specialty drinks (like capraihanas), some made with South American liqueurs. Parva features great appetizers: two kinds of fries with dipping sauces, quinoa-breaded shrimp, miniature beef empanadas, sausages, and little pancake-like discs filled with cheese. The steak and yucca choice is fantastic for carb-haters. And Happy Hour is a real deal at Parva.

Upstairs is a nightclub the likes of which you probably haven't seen -- big club seats and banquettes in white leather. Lights, the whole deal. We liked Parva.
