The Parish Cafe Gets a Sibling

Great families have been known to expand eventually.
Here to prove this extends beyond TV Land is the new South End location of the fabled Parish Cafe
slated to open this Monday on Tremont Street.
If you're a fan of the original, then you'll be excited to hear that all your Back Bay favorites are now
available in the South End. That means the finest sandwiches from chefs around the city, from Lydia Shire's
(Locke-Ober) The Steak and Blue
, packed with rare tenderloin on blue cheese bread, to the Pallotta
sisters' famed Nebo
, with heaps of Italian tuna, olive tapenade and Mediterranean aioli on a crispy
baguette. Just don't overlook made-in-house gems like the Baked Mac and Cheese
: piping hot romano,
cheddar and Gruyère under a Ritz-crusted crown.
The biggest difference here is the space itself—far less the "scene" vibe and more like a cool
converted garage clubhouse, perfect for dipping into after work (or before a show at Wally's Café,
right around the corner) for a sandwich and canned/bottled brew like Butternut Porkslap Pale Ale out of New
York, in addition to the 16 drafts on tap.
New rule: all garages should have working draft lines.
