My first time to Parish for a sunday brunch and I absolutely love the decor and atmoshpere in this place. If i were to own a restaurant this would be the style i would choose. Old brick building with brick interiior walls, wooden tables and chic decor. Love it. However, I was very very very disappointed with the food. I will say this first though, the menu has potential and im sure that due to the unexpected mad rush on superbowl sunday the kitchen staff was not fully prepared to due this many covers. Ok with that said ill begin my food review. I ordered the doghead benedict, which is a bisquit with fried chicken, chipotle sauce, and poached eggs, with small diced hashbrown potatoes. Firstly, the bisquit needed to be a little bit sweeter and was too dry. The sauce was totaly burnt, litterly tasted like old frier oil, my poached eggs were not runny but rather fully cooked hard boiled eggs, which by the way is my favorite part of a benedict, and to top it all of the food was completely cold. Ok so like i said before the menu has potential but it was poorly executed. Rarely due I return after experiences like that, but today I am feeling good and will return for lunch when the volume of business is a little lighter. 2 stars simply for decor. Next time parish. Review subject to change.

Oh, King! How I adore thee! thy humble servant hast pondered hours and hours to describe thy beauty, majesty, and awesomeness yet my inadequate mortal words couldst not depict its attraction and my mind can't fathom its power. Although I couldst not put price on what thy hast to offer, thy exquisite stiff drinks didst not come cheap. For once I wouldst gladly pay $16 for a simple vodka tonic, $20 for simple bourbon on the rocks, up to $40 for some specialty drinks. Your humble servant believeth that the kingly experience shouldst be matched with a kingly price. Thy has also provided delightful munchies such as mixed nuts (macadamia, cashews), wasabi peas, and pretzel nuggets for our hungry souls. Oh King, how long to see thee! Thy Ole King Cole painting/mural which is the backdrop for the bar will stay with me forever. Thou provide a place of beauty, class, and luxury with certain familiarity and comfort. Surely, this is a place fit for a king, a place for American royalties such as Kennedys, but surely not for the spoiled youngsters like Hiltons. Manhattan hast been blessed with thy presence, the presence of the King. Your humble servant wouldst remember thee and wouldst always long for thy stiff drinks and beauty. parting is such sweet sorrow.

The music selection is consistently good, if largely mainstream--radio-friendly disco house, hip-hop, and plenty of retro throwbacks--but some of The Abbey's DJs can't mix to save their lives. (Learn how to match beats BEFORE you try spinning for a crowd, please.) I can't always get into the scene (very college and very hetero), but I dig the fact that people come to The Abbey to do some serious booty-shaking. All told, this Richmond pub is a great little place to dance on the weekends; just don't expect to meet your soul mate there.
