The problem with this eatery isn’t a lack of vision, but a surplus of it. There’s a huge movie screen, oversize hanging globe lights and banquettes with an IHOPish floral print. We’d forgive the lack of focus if the food weren’t so mediocre. The menu boasts a “get what you pay for” grilled rib eye, but we certainly didn’t pay $27.50 for a gristly, fatty piece of meat. Even a hot-fudge sundae was lacking: The double-fudge brownie at the bottom was dry. Parish would do well to curb the variety and stick to the classics, like its satisfying meat-loaf TV dinner.
