NYC: Parlor – Members’ club with foodie appeal

January 4, 2018

Dinner at Parlor, members' club, NYC

Last time I was in NYC, I finally managed to come by Parlor for a preview dinner. Parlor is a member’s club in NYC, and members dine for $20 for a special 3-course menu.

We started with cocktails in the bar, and they were so good that we decided to continue with cocktails for the dinner instead of wine. We could choose between 2 different starters and two different mains, followed by sorbet for dessert. I had tomato soup and pasta with butternut squash, and both dishes were well-executed and tasty, but the culinary creativity seemed somehow limited by the budget. We also had a selection of sides and appetizers from the ordinary menu, and they were all excellent, and even more solid proof of Parlor’s ambition of profiling themselves as a member’s club with foodie appeal.

The annual membership fee is $1500, but they have a special rate for international members. You can apply for membership at Parlor’s website. I became a member in December, and I’m looking forward to my future visits in 2018.
