Headed back to Parker's on Ponce with friends Saturday night. As I said in my last review, I was wating for Parker's to step things up a bit. Saturday night, they did just that.
After beers and cucumber coolers at Leon's, we headed to Parker's for our 7:30 reservation. There was a healthy crowd for a Sat night; patio was packed, and nearly all the tables inside were as well.
We started with the cheese plate, a nice collection of roqufort, smoked gouda and cheddar with cranberries and crackers as well as a house salad, and the calamari, which seems to make it to our table everytime we visit Parker's. The calamari is really tasty, nice and crispy with silky cannelini beans and a sweet onion aioli.
I ordered the ribeye, which was cooked perfectly to medium-rare this time. Seared perfectgly on the outside with a nice touch of salty goodness. Had the the absolutley decadent truffle mac and cheese on the side. That stuff should be illegal.
The table also had the lamb lollipops and crab cakes, all of which were spot on Sat. night. Nice job Parker's.
