Parco Cafe Nashville open for lunch

  • 9

Had lunch at Parco Cafe in Printers Alley yesterday. They changed hands and are now open for lunch. The menu is much abbreviated, though. There are a couple of soups, four sandwiches and two specials and that's about all. I had a curried seafood soup under a pastry dome and my friend had a sort of fusion coquille St Jacques with a salad of chilled sauteed bok choy and julienne bell peppers. Really good, and only about $20 for both of us!

  1. Does the new chef/owner make Mr. Fu's special veggie burger?

      I was going to ask the same thing, Jennie. That veggie burger is my favorite!

    2. What happened to Mr. & Mrs. Fu???

        I think I heard that they're on kind of a sabbatical in China, and will return in a few months.

          No, they sold it to one of Mr. Fu's students. They have moved back to China permanently. Discussed on the Nashville Scene Food Blog (Bites):

            The veggie burger is still on the menu, and there's also a version with ham.

      2. A very mediocre review of this "new" restaurant in today's Tennessean.

          "Mediocre" is putting it nicely. That's about the harshest review I've ever seen from Jim Myers.

            I saw that too. He only talked about dinner though. I wonder if he ate any lunches and how those items compared to what Mr. Fu cooked.

            I miss eating lunch at the farmer's market stand every Sunday.
