THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Parisienne Chophouse Restaurant Review: Since Marco Pierre White hung up his toque he has become a remarkably successful and effective restaurateur. The Parisienne Chophouse, on the site of a former Group Chez Gerard place, has been transformed into a wonderful rendition of a Parisian brasserie---all black and white tiled floors, wooden tables with dim lighting and vintage posters. The surprise comes with the abundance of bulls heads hanging from various pillars and adorning the Charcuterie bar at the back of the long, low room. The food, however, surpasses most of what is produced in France these days. Typical brasserie dishes of onion soup, duck rillettes, and even fresh frogs legs, skewered roast black chicken, gogot dagneau and all the French trimmings are cooked with a degree of flavor that is astonishing. Best of all are the grilled meats, perfectly sourced, hung and treated. Desserts follow the correct French path (crème brûlée, tarte Tatin, tarte au citron, etc.) with impeccable execution. Service is a delight, and the wine list wide ranging in both price and geography. All in all, this is a most successful corner of France.
