Every aspect of Parish Hall is fresh. Home to 2013 Rising Star Sustainability Chef Evan Hanczor, the food here is driven by seasons, farmers, and traditions of the Northeast. Sounds familiar enough as a concept, but Hanczor and Owner George Weld (of Egg fame) have a holistic vision of farm-to-table dining. Starting with the décor: the interior is modern and white with sleek blond wood banquettes and tables—with none of the clichéd rustic-industrial-barnyard feel. As for the food, Hanczor not only sources ingredients from local farmers, he and his team grow and harvest them from their own upstate farm. He and Weld also take on sustainability from a human perspective, paying employees higher-than-standard wages and keeping their work weeks to a sane 40 hours . All those good vibes, though, wouldn’t mean much if Hanczor didn’t deliver on food. Dining at Parish Hall is a reflection of the Northeast with vegetable-heavy plates, lovingly cooked proteins, deep layers of flavor, and pleasant spikes of acid. Just the kind of delicious, feel-good food New York needs to stay in touch with its greater humanity.
