Hot New Restaurant -- The Parish

THR's pick of the week for industry dining finds refined considerations of gastropub grub in downtown L.A.'s Fashion District.

The Quick Pitch: Chef Casey Lane of Venice’s tough-to-get-a-reservation Tasting Kitchen has headed to downtown L.A.’s gentrifying Historic Core — specifically, the Fashion District — to open his second concept, a mash-up of French brasserie and British pub influences, as interpreted through a decidedly Californian lens. This translates as fried frog legs with jalapeno slaw, grilled shrimp with Green Goddess dressing and poutine pigs’ feet with arugula.
