PARISH Foods & Goods Restaurant Review: PARISH Foods & Goods is a restaurant, market and to-go operation all rolled into one. To share, choose a charcuterie plate composed of cured meats from local Pine Street Market or a plate of Sweet Grass Dairy cheeses from south Georgia. Try Georgia trout and pan-fried catfish for touches of Southern cooking, although there’s a fried boneless breast of chicken, too, something true believers will reject. Very good braised pork shank with white beans and a mustard vinaigrette provides plenty for two persons; precede it with the local beets salad. Apple crisp makes a nice dessert for fall and winter with its accompanying house-made caramel ice cream. Chef Zeb Stevenson will launch a new menu in March 2014, and we look forward to new concepts and dishes. The wine list needs a good scrubbing as well, with selections that aren't as humdrum as some that it currently offers, although we do like the sparkling Gruet brut rosé from New Mexico. While several Georgia-produced craft beers are listed, the quaffs offer not a drop of Georgia-produced wine. Extensive bourbon and Scotch lists are well selected.
