Parish Foods and Goods

Parish Food and Goods is more than an Atlanta restaurant, literally. It is a restaurant, market, deli and community haven (to quote them exactly). Adding a little "spice" to Inman Park, Parish has recently underwent a make-over and now it is better than ever. Fitting in with its location right off the BeltLine, Parish has relaunched as a less New Orleans-focused and more community-driven restaurant when it reopened late this March. Parish focuses more on creating moments for its guests, in addition to creating fantastic dishes. Music, people and the good, green Earth all come together in perfect harmony to make this place a communal environment.

While it may not be your typical Atlanta-style restaurant, it is sure going to be one of your favorites. From the long, communal tables designed for quick bites and casual conversations, to ready-made dinners at your fingertips, Parish is changing the way Atlanta dines. Everything from soups, salads, sandwiches, pastries, breads and hearty breakfast dishes await you. The market offers easy, on-the-go dining, while the dining room offers a more contemporary dining experience. Enjoy your meal inside at the tables or out side on the lovely patio. Exposed brick, form the original historic building greet you throughout. Speaking of the building, PARISH is located in the heart of Inman Park in a historical Terminal Building built in 1890.

The only remaining structure from an old pipe factory building had been abandoned for some time. The building has been restored to its original grandeur allowing patrons to relish the antiquated structure as they take in the organically funky vibe found throughout. Events, or "gatherings" as they are called, are a regular with Parish. Be sure to check their "gatherings" page to find out more. Parish is one of those places that need to be experienced to be believed. No matter how well these words are written, they will do no justice to the grandeur and splendor that is Parish. "Catering to no one by catering to everyone" is a motto that many should live by and it is one they have built their very structure upon.
