My husband and I had read the reviews of The Parish and decided to give it a try. This bar/restaurant has a neighborhood feel to it and the staff was friendly and attentive. We started with two beers from their on tap selection and moved on to an appetizer and dinner. We shared the goat cheese relleno and found it to be delicious. However, $8.00 for one skinny chile filled with cheese is a bit pricey (my opinion). When our dinner arrived, we were also disappointed in the portions. On the menu, "Shrimp and Grits" is noted as serving the grits as "cakes" PLURAL, but only one was served. My husband also commented on the bowl of Guedry's Gumbo; saying that they must be running short because his bowl was only half filled. We loved the food, but wondered why they would skimp on the portions in such a pronounced fashion. We will go back, but have dedided to stick with beer and perhaps give their burgers a try.
