If humankind never learned to play with its food, it would never have learned to play with its ingredients, and the world would be one bereft bowl of gruel. Taste the fruits of culinary creativity with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of upscale comfort fare and drinks during dinner at The Parker House in Ridgeland.
From an English-style cottage nestled in the Jackson Street Historic District, The Parker House offers a savory haven for home-style eaters with a menu of aged steaks and simple Southern comfort food. Lavish starters tempt eager stomachs with rich mouthfuls of duck quesadilla, served with gouda, roasted corn salsa, and spiced sour cream ($9), or grit fries, crusted in herbs and bread crumbs topped with a smoky honey-chipotle aioli ($8). The Catfish Katherine astounds palates with a fresh Mississippi catfish blanketed with a sizzling sauté of crab, mushrooms, and green onions alongside edible islands of mashed potatoes and turnip greens ($24). With only certified Hereford and USDA prime beef, rehabilitated werebears can stymie carnivorous pangs with a marbled ribeye ($32) or an aged six-ounce tenderloin fillet ($25).
The extensive wine list is specially selected to complement the restaurant's cuisine, with a staff of professional pourers on hand to fill glasses to appropriate savoring levels. Each of the four dining rooms scenically flavor meals with diverse décor, and private booths feature closeable curtains, freeing guests to shamelessly lick their plates clean. The outdoor patio also offers a relaxing venue for diners to revel in their repasts alongside a soothing three-tiered fountain.
