The whole city mourned the departure of Upstairs on the Square, such was the iconic status of the 30-year-old institution. Comfort came in the knowledge that something notable would have to take its place, and Parsnip ably answers the call. Gone are Upstairs’ bright colors and zebra stripes; the new restaurant prefers neutral colors and sleek marble. The menu changes regularly but includes regular dishes like noisettes of lamb, veal tenderloin and potato and artichoke terrine. Don’t skip dessert—outre offerings like the dark chocolate brownie with popcorn ice cream deserve attention. The funkier, fireplaced upstairs lounge impresses with inventive bar food and an adventurous cocktail list.
