Sophisticated New Restaurant

My oldest son was in town for the weekend and I took him to Parigi for dinner.  The restaurant design is sharp and sophisticated.  We did not have a reservation, though were able to sit at the bar. I can’t wait to go back and try more of the menu!

 

My Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆/5
