Inside what 5280 Magazine describes as a "125-year-old dining room with original mosaic tile and a sparkling chandelier," restaurateur Robert Thompson and his expert staff have re-created the cuisine and atmosphere of old-school Parisian bistros and brasseries. With locally sourced ingredients, artisanal cheeses, and in-house charcuterie, Chef Sergio Romero and his culinary team craft French cuisine that 5280 Magazine, in its 2011 Best New Restaurants feature, lauded as "light, fresh, and remarkable." French classics such as escargot, steak frites, and a savory crepe of the day complement a selection of cocktails made by mixologist Colin Dart. Diners can savor each bite while nestled into oversized booths or contemplating infinity on the outdoor patio.
Parry's ardently flaunts its affinity with New York–style pizzerias, from the Syracuse University memorabilia festooning the walls to its rich, thin-crust pies. Catch the nail-biting season finale of Antique Roadshow on a 42" plasma while enjoying 10 golden buffalo wings ($7.49) or an order of crispy fried mozzarella sticks ($5.99). Individual eaters can sate their singularly hungry belly with a calzone loaded with a trio of cheeses ($6.99) or meats ($8.99), or tackle a sandwich such as the meatball parmesan, carefully propped between a toasted roll ($5.99). Families, competitive eaters, and disgruntled discus throwers may be drawn to the 18" specialty pies, including Parry's combo of pepperoni, sausage, bacon, mushrooms, green peppers, black olives, and red onions ($18.99), or the supremely Big Apple–inspired Lil Avery's pie with a delicate blend of herbs, spices, and parmesan cheese ($15.99). Doughy dishes can also be constructed to individual clients' demands ($11.99+) with toppings such as anchovies, fresh basil, pickles, spicy italian sausage, and more ($0.25–$1 each). A suite of sumptuous wines and frosty suds accompany the zesty eats.
