The Parish

Somehow flying just under the radar of the Northwest restaurant hype, the Parish is a New Orleans-style restaurant and bar complete with turtle soup on the menu. It's beautifully appointed with all the faded French glory of the Crescent City, and the Parish serves their oyster shooters half a dozen different ways—all of which involve alcohol. They even make their own in-house hot sauce, which you can pick up at six bucks a bottle right there at the bar. Though the cocktail menu is as fancy as the next, the bar staff is unfussy and approachable, and food prices for the most part steer well clear of the $20 mark—downright cheap eats compared to the rest of the neighborhood.
