Located off of Camelback Road near 24th Street, you could easily miss it if it wasn’t for the glowing red sign that simply says “The Parlor.”
A converted 1960s hair salon is now a great dining experience. The atmosphere is lively and welcoming gives the vibe of a casual neighborhood hangout. A nice variety of wine and beer is sure to quench any thirst and the bartenders are happy to help with any libation decision.
Just off the entrance, you will notice an adorable garden. The Parlor grows fruits, veggies and herbs onsite exclusively for their dishes (which explains why everything tastes so darn fresh).
The spicy buffalo chicken pizza is delicious but I warn you, it IS spicy! Roasted organic chicken with house-made BBQ sauce and provolone cheese topped with serrano chilies gives this pie that extra kick — don’t say I didn’t warn you!
The beet salad is one of my favorites and I find myself ordering it time and time again. The fresh beets are complimented by walnut-encrusted goat cheese and fennel as the tangy white balsamic dressing livens up this salad!
The Grinder sandwich is HUGE. Generously piled high is a variety of Italian meats and provolone cheese on a house-made hoagie. This sandwich WILL fill you up but be sure to save room for fries. Crispy, thin and addictive, it is hard to stop once you’ve had a taste of these mouthwatering fries!
While you are there take a peek at the vintage pictures hanging on the wall. It gives you a glimpse of what the building looked like when it was Salon De Venus.
The pictures are a fun look into the past but this foodie gal is glad this spot transformed from hair/beauty parlor to The Parlor!
