Parm, the new lunch spot and full fledged restaurant from the team behind uber popular Torrisi Italian Specialties and one of the biggest debuts of the Fall 2011 season, opens to the public today at 11 AM. All lunch operations from Torrisi now live at Parm, which is outfitted with a bar and counter with swivel stools, a small dining room, and actual table service. On offer for lunch now (in either roll, sub, or platter form): roasted turkey, chicken parm, eggplant parm, meatball parm, sausage and peppers, chicken francese, potato and egg, Italian, and a new addition that's already getting raves from the friends and family crowds, a Saratoga Club.
Also on the menu are salads, vegetable sides, garlic bread, fresh mozzarella, raw or baked clams, calamari, and baked ziti. For dinner, they have daily specials like chopped steak and veal parm. See the menu below or download a PDF here.
Now that Parm is open, Torrisi will transition to its new setup: a four course $60 menu at lunch and dinner and a $125 15 - 20 course menu at dinner. They will reopen with this menu on Friday.
Check it out, and as always, send the early reports this way.
