George Weld of Egg has a new one in the 'burg, Parish Hall. It's open for lunch now, with dinner service beginning next Friday, the 13th (!). Weld tells us the seasonal menu from chef Evan Hanczor is "more free-ranging and inventive" than the cooking at always-jammed Egg, with flavors that are "a little bit more subtle, using a lot more herbs." Think food like a lamb loin with nasturtium pesto and carrot sauce (see more, including some delicious-sounding sandwiches, in a sample lunch menu below). Coming up for dinner, Hanczor has been playing with similar plates, including one with pork, kale, rutabaga puree, coffee, and beets. The space is half open for now, and a back dining room will bow in the middle of May. See photos straight ahead.
