Casual and cozy while giving off a relaxed and chill vibe, Parker & Quinn, the signature restaurant for the Refinery Hotel, located steps away from Bryant Park in New York City is a hidden gem.
A mixture of tables along with intimate, elevated booths that allow for diners to engage, lend to the nostalgic atmosphere of a building that exudes a classic design dating back over a century. From its original origin of a working factory till now, locals and out-of-town guests can’t help but feel like they’ve stepped out of the city and into an upscale pub.
Along with the comfortable atmosphere and friendly wait staff, patrons will find a rotating menu from Executive Chef Jeff Haskell that changes with each season. Using only the freshest and highest quality of locally sourced ingredients, you can’t go wrong when it comes to ordering.
The menu features an array of choices so it’s best to come hungry! For starters, items like the butcher’s meatballs and smoked squash hummus under small plates are great options to kick off your meal. With five different flatbreads, the butternut squash with melted onions, gorgonzola, sea salt pistachio, and petimezi (a Greek-style molasses syrup) is both a unique and delicious addition to the table. And for your main course there are a variety of dishes to choose from whether it be meat, chicken or fish, or even a burger or sandwich, Chef Haskell has you covered. And don’t forget your sides – the mashed potatoes made with truffled butter are not to be skipped.
Now on to dessert which you won’t want to pass on because it’s just that good. For anyone who loves cookies and ice cream, the Warm Trademark’s Chocolate Chip cookie skillet with chocolate gelato is a must.
Offering breakfast, lunch, dinner, and brunch Saturday and Sunday from 7a-3p, Parker & Quinn is also featuring a special Valentine’s Day menu. In addition to the $65 three course pre-fix menu, couples can also purchase a “to go” Valentine’s Day bag ($45 each) which includes a bottle of champagne, chocolate, and a rose, to keep the romance going once dinner has ended. While the pre-fix and “to-go” bag is only available on Friday the 14th, couples looking to celebrate past then can still enjoy a fabulous dinner all weekend long.
