We love this Italian restaurant’s alfresco dining area, with its huge umbrellas and crystals dangling from the trees—it’s magical at night. It made the perfect setting for risotto jazzed up with a fiery combination of shrimp, grilled chicken, andouille sausage, and peppers. Needing something soothing for dessert, we settled on champagne cake layered with vanilla custard, buttery icing, and sliced strawberries. Every time we come, we wonder how Parigi’s kitchen, about the same size as ours at home, keeps up the quality for its loyal following year after year after year.
