In The News!

February 27, 2015


Parson’s Chicken & Fish continues to earn praise, and has received plenty as of late.

Chicago Magazine recently did a small feature piece on our beloved ‘Vegetable Club’, naming it “One of the best veggie sandwiches in Chicago.”

Parson’s was also included in a national Eater piece, a survey of 15 Great Negronis That Break The Rules, including our ‘Original Negroni Slushy’, one of only two in the Midwest and Chicago’s only mention.

And then WGN News just did an amusing television segment on Parson’s, as a part of their morning news programming, one that aired earlier this week. In it, Demetrius and Marcus visit with Chef Hunter Moore (that mustache!) and Principal Bartender Charlie Schott, and then take a couple of turns (?) on our outdoor ice rink.  It’s worth a watch, if you have a couple of minutes to spare.

Ain’t No Valentine…

February 7, 2015


Join us at Parson’s Chicken & Fish on Friday, February 14th for a Valentine’s Day celebration unlike those commonly offered by others.

Expensive prix fixe menus? Nope.

Reservations? Nope.

We’re instead celebrating the individual (though the romantically inclined can come to the party as well!), with cocktail and food specials that can be enjoyed alone, in tandem or with friends.  Chef Hunter Moore and principle bartender Charlie Schott have devised a couple of additional offerings to celebrate and honor old St. Valentine including….

Steak for one – Marinated Slagal Family Farms Tri-Tip, Three Sisters Cheese Grits, Grilled Creamed Escarole, Beef Jus, Parsley Butter

Lonely Guy Special – 3oz Very Old Barton 100proof, Old Milwaukee, Forget Her/Him

No More Pagne – Prosecco, Bitters, Sugar Cube

Roses Are Dead – Four Roses Single Barrel, Cocchi di Torino, Bitters

Violets Are Too – Genever, Maraschino, Pineapple, Creme De Violette & Egg White

No Love Lost  – Beet Infused Mezcal, Byrrh, Cinnamon


Sunday Sunday Sunday

January 28, 2015


Ah, the big game is again approaching!  We’re happy to focus on the cooking, so you can focus on the drinking, and encourage all you ‘stay-at-homes’ to take advantage of Parson’s carryout and delivery options, available as normal all day on Sunday, February 1st.

In addition, this Sunday only, chef Hunter Moore is offering up a wings special, Parson’s ‘buffalo style’ wings with celery and creamy blue cheese dressing, available in one, three and (whooping!) five pound formats.  These will be available at the restaurant, and for carryout and delivery as well.

Play on!

Chef Hunter Moore in Austin

January 16, 2015


In September at the Land and Sea Dept. studios we hosted Alexandra Manley, of Josephine House and the McGuire Moorman group, as a part of the From Good Stock supper club series.

As a result, Manley has graciously invited Land and Sea Dept., Parson’s Chicken and Fish and its extended family to Austin (in January, of all months – thank you!), where we’ll present a dinner at Josephine House on Sunday, January 25th.

Parson’s Chicken & Fish chef Hunter Moore has created a dinner menu for the event, and will be working with Manley in her kitchen in the days leading up to the dinner. Longman & Eagle principal bartender Chad Hauge will also be in Texas, and he, too, will offer up a creative menu, in this case of drink and spirit pairings.


Get Your Skate On!

January 13, 2015


Okay, peoples, we think we’re ready to give this skate rink of ours a go!

This sustained period of lower temperatures, and all the (ahem) negatives that come with it, has at least had the positive impact of freezing our outdoor ice rink.

The rink is open 3pm until 12am on Fridays, and then open from 10am to 12am on Saturdays, and 10am to 8pm on Sundays. (The rink being open is dependent on weather conditions).

Chef Hunter Moore and principal bartender Charlie Schott will have hot drinks and food readied for you as well, as a hedge against these cold temperatures.

We’ll be offering up our usual fare – great drinks and food – and the weekly Wednesday Animals party particulars will take place as usual, meaning punk rock on the stereo, cheap beers and shots, and all the friends you never knew you had.
