Bakeries in Hilltop


Select Local Merchants

From the strains of live blues resonating through its walls to the spicy kick of its habañero Voodoo shrimp, Blue Parrot Bar & Grille recreates the freewheeling, vivacious vibe of a New Orleans nightclub. Guests sip colorful mojitos and hurricanes as they dig into Creole and Cajun specialties, including étouffée, red beans and rice, gumbo, and jambalaya. Live bands primarily capture the gazes of diners, although the restaurant’s decor is interesting on its own. Murals, carnival masks, and posters evoke lively Bourbon Street scenes and Mardi Gras celebrations; outside, a brick patio surrounds guests with fountains, canna plants, and a large mural of a French Quarter–style inn.

The bakers at Papa's Pastry whip up decadent desserts fit for special occasions or every day. Their Italian pignoli cookies stand out as best sellers amongst chocolate chips, biscotti, and cinnamon-walnut rugelach. Cakes come in towering tiers of ganache and buttercream or ranch-style ramblers of rich cheesecake. The culinary artists also assemble gluten-free breads, biscuits, and entrees for those with an aversion to wheat and hawk their wares at various farmers' markets from May to October.

Dead Presidents Pub & Restaurant, which was recently ranked one of the Best Bars in America by Esquire, pays tribute to presidential and U.S. heritage with regional pub dishes and American brews. Culinary crews build plates named for former commanders in chief, such as Roosevelt, Jefferson, and Megatron, using steak fillets, barbecued ribs, pulled pork, and seafood. An extensive roster of beers ranges from local and East Coast microbrews on tap to bottled domestic craft beers to special bottles 16 ounces or larger. The bar's softly lit rooms, wood-paneled walls, and hardwood floors provide a sleek lounge area that resounds with murmured guesses about which president was secretly a warlock on Quizzo trivia nights. The pub often celebrates its executive namesakes with special President's Day soirees, which have included costume parties and pig roasts.
