Parigi Restaurant Review

: Though Andree Falls, the original owner-chef and author of The Parigi Cookbook is long gone, her vision of a contemporary oasis of Mediterranean charm lives on into its third decade---probably due to the fact that every owner after her was either a former employee or client. Parigi is Italian for Paris and it perfectly intones the style of this Mediterranean mainstay with its mix of seasonal French and Italian dishes with a little California thrown in. Two dishes have remained on the menu since opening, the whole roasted garlic and the infamous chocolate glob, both are still must-haves when you visit. The menu changes weekly with an emphasis on salads, pastas, meats and fish made with fresh herbs and seasonal vegetables. The open kitchen, a well-trained staff and a large group of regular customers who all seem to know each other gives Parigi the feel of a private club where anyone is welcome.
