Tipsy Parson

The scattered book wall paper and fake books behind the bar mixed with vintage whiskey bottles is the reason Tipsy Parson feels like a corrupt library -you can drink and scream in here without being reprimanded!  The restaurant’s front room is crammed with smaller, two-seater tables, but the pleasant back room opens up and is ideal for big groups. The brunch menu sounds colorful and pours out comfort food such as: Pimento Cheeseburger, Catfish Po’ Boy, Shrimp & Grits and Mac & Cheese; however, the flavors and ingredients mixed together backfire. The Mushroom Toast with Herb Ricotta, Wild Mushrooms and Scrambled Eggs (above) presents extreme potential and looks mouth-watering but was blah. The exciting ‘Make-Your-Own’ Buttermilk Biscuits menu with a sweet OR savory option skyrocketed my hopes but couldn’t have been more disappointing. The double biscuit flavor idea rocks, but how can you charge $4 for a small biscuit that fits in your pocket and an extra $2 for honey butter or berry jam? Don’t rule out Tipsy Parson completely because it is fun, but if you’re looking for a “belly-filling goodness,” edgy brunch with an equivalent scene stick with Peels on Bowery.

  • What??! I got the Catfish Po Boy and it was the best fish sandwich I have EVER had. My boyfriend got the Farmstand Scramble too and loved that. Also the cinnamon bun was to die for.

    Sorry you had a bad experience but this was one of the best brunches I have had in a while.
