When I moved to Atlanta, the building that houses Parish--a dinner spot so trendy you'd mistake it for a Porsche dealership come Friday night--was merely a decrepit, rectangular stack of bricks with the word "OVERDOSE" graffitied down the side of it. Oh, the difference a year makes in these Intown 'hoods. The beautifully restored Parish is the last remaining structure of a giant 1890 pipe factory in the heart of Inman Park. It's courtesy of those brilliant minds at the Concentrics Group, the folks responsible for the Man's Paradise that is STATS downtown. They've injected this space with the charm--and the hearty, oceanic fare--of oldest New Orleans. The food is uniquely prepared and usually excellent, though pricey for shoestring diners. A fresh market on the ground level opens daily at 7 am. Grab an organic loaf or po-boy and chill on the spacious patio. Better yet, reach for the In Cold Blood screwdriver--named for Louisiana's finest, Truman Capote--and contemplate the breeze.

Imagine an old New Orleans style house, complete with the large, long ceiling-to-floor windows, worn shutters and cracks in the floor. Ceiling fans blow about humid air and someone who's seen many years go by is sitting on the porch sipping iced tea out of a Mason jar. That's the feel of the new restaurant and deli Parish Food & Goods in Inman Park. First time I went, I had lunch in the deli, which is in the basement of the building. Fresh bread, meats, cheeses and wonderful po-boys are served. The shrimp po-boy was a bit salty, but good. The basement also had a gourmet coffee bar and in the morning serves breakfast. The restaurant upstairs serves up innovative New Orleans fare. I had the appetizers of chicken and andouille sausage cheesecake and the jumbo bbq shrimp. Delicious! For my entree, I was so full, I couldn't finish the Andouille crusted catfish, which was just was wonderful. The restaurant, dining for two, will set you back about $75 bucks for drinks, appetizers and entrees but is well worth every penny. Lunch, around $15 for one.
