Parallax Restaurant & Lounge Restaurant Review

: Zack Bruell’s Parallax is a hip urban restaurant serving sushi and Asian fusion fare. The bar faces a row of sturdy private booths, while the subtly lit dining room is elegant yet relaxed. An intimate enclosed sunroom out back adds extra seating year-round. Add to that a surprisingly extensive menu (presented on a metal clipboard) and we find ourselves enamored. Start with the buttery short rib pot stickers served with a side of sweet and hot dipping sauce. Then indulge in some of the city’s best sushi. We recommend the rainbow roll, panko breaded spicy scallop roll, pickled radish roll and Philly steak roll. If you’d rather stay on land, go for the lemongrass braised pork shank sided by chile-cabbage egg noodles and candied jalapeño. For dessert, try the passion fruit cheesecake with coconut caramel. Above-average cuisine coupled with a nice, savvy wine selection makes for a great date destination.
