Hand-me-downs aren't always bad -- your brother's Jordans make you look cool & retro, and while your sister's deodorant may be pH balanced for a woman, at least it's strong enough for a man. Proudly taking over what Catch left behind, Parsons Table, now open.
With their award-winning seafood joint Catch heading into the city, the owners of the Winchester spot have fitted the space out for younger sibling PT, who's serving a simple menu of upscale comfort fare, sustainable wines, and local microbrews in a renovated warm, woodsy 48-seat dining room decorated with reclaimed tabletops, a 6-seat chef's counter/bar, copper light fixtures, and a wall made of old barnwood siding, which is sooo like the wall, to always be siding with barnwood! Locally sourced surf & turf entrees include a double-cut pork chop served w/ polenta and dried figs; a juicy portobello, balsamic onion, and Swiss smothered farm burger; and a grainy mustard seasoned rainbow trout over which are cipollini onions and Fra'Mani pancetta (aka dreams that really do come true). There're also smaller plates like Maine mussels in a lobster broth w/ Spanish chorizo, smoked tomato, and sofrito; mac & cheese elbows laced with ham; and seared lemon and salt roasted clams rolled in chorizo breadcrumbs and seasoned w/ an oregano mojo, which makes the clams irresistible to shagging other shellfish. Sex? Yes please!
For imbibing after work, PT pours a solid lineup of wines from small, family-owned vineyards (Snoqualmie "Naked" Riesling, Margerum "M5") and draft/bottled beers like Long Trail IPA, Geary's, and Brooklyn Brown Ale; there're also plans in the works for a Sunday brunch and a once-a-month night featuring bluegrass, which probably isn't the best hand-me-down, since it was sitting in a film canister in your brother's drawer for, like, over a year.
