New Plymouth restaurant (old Senser's locale)

I just don't see how having entrees in the $30-$50 range meshes well with 'everything suburbanites want', but will have to see....

    Oh my. They are from Parasole. This should be interesting.

      The article says $10-30 range, which seems in line with market prices.

        Yes, it has been changed. There is a notation in the article noting the change.

        $10-30 is reasonable.

          Maybe. Most of the Parasole restaurants I've eaten at have been overpriced for the quality you get.

          I'm also still annoyed at their "the waiters pay our credit card processing fees for us out of their tip money" stunt.

            Chillydog's first comment might be interpreted slightly differently from the content in the article. The people running this new restaurant are indeed former Parasole employees, but this is not another outpost of the actual Parasole business.

              KTF is right - Larson was actually the head chef at Figlio back in the day, and had a hand in creating Chino Latino's menu, before they both were bought up by Parasole, which essentially made him a 'Parasole Employee.' I hope this works out for him - I'll be giving it a try.

                Ah, that's much better then. I can try it after all ;)

          Just to clarify the apparent discrepancy, there is a an asterisk and note at the bottom of this afternoon's version of the City Pages article, like this:

          *The original prices posted on their Facebook page have been amended.

          I'll be staying tuned to hear reports of the menu once they open.

            They opened last week. Any reports?

              I was just going to post that I'd driven by there last night and a big banner with 'now open' or 'finally open' is hanging on the front facade.

              I was there for lunch this week. It was in a word, awful. There were very few diners and the food was slow and not good. One diner had a good looking pork sandwich that was described as I edible that went unfinished. I had soup that tasted like it came from a can.
