Parigo, a new Marina District restaurant from the owners of the Financial District’s The Barrel Room, is due to open on September 7th in the former Scotland Yard space. Sarah Trubnick, who serves as wine director, and Manny Hewitt, executive chef, took over 3232 Scott Street, which was Bin 38 before Scotland Yard, back in February, telling Hoodline they were such fans of the space that they had to jump at the opportunity.
After updating it with new elements like a custom-made redwood bar — and an additional one in the back patio area — and creating a menu with a very serious focus on wine pairings, they’re nearly ready for customers. The team also added a fire pit and herb garden to the patio, which holds seats for 40 people. There are 15 or so more outdoor seats in front of 3232 Scott.
Just how seriously does this menu take wine? Quite. Each dish at Parigo comes listed two suggested wine complements and one suggested wine contrast, available by the glass or half glass.
“Many restaurants play with the idea of food-and-wine pairings,” Trubnick told Wine Spectator of the Parigo approach. “Some offer special pairing menus, others offer suggestions of wines when a guest orders a dish. We have decided to take this concept to the next level."
Here’s what that looks like. Bottles are also available.
