( – Upper Queen Anne
How I heard of this place: Through my Entertainment Book several years ago.
Type of cuisine: Old world cuisine with new world fusion.
Ambiance: Casual but chic. You may find people in jeans and others dressed for an evening out on the town.
What I ordered: I started the evening with my regular bar beverage – a Shirley Temple. My dining companion ordered a red wine. We shared the Soul Rolls ($9) – his choice – made with red beans, greens, rice and shredded chicken, rolled in an egg-roll wrapper fried. We also shared the Meze Plate ($15) – my choice – which was beautifully presented and delivered to the table. It included a variety of snack items such as assorted cured meats, cheeses, vegetables (green beans, pickled carrots, bacon wrapped asparagus, Brussels sprouts sauteed with almond slices), spanakopita, crackers and quince jam.
What I loved: The Meze Plate was the winner for me, including a little bit of everything that can keep you snacking casually, savoring flavors and enjoying light evening fare while listening to funk, soul and hip-hop inspired covers. Having enjoyed food at Paragon Restaurant several times in the past, I hadn’t realized how well-known they are for live music. I was invited to enjoy GoodyBagg’s musical entertainment over appetizers by my friend Carlton.
Why I loved it: The food is satisfactory, the environment cozy and louge-y and the music well worth the trip. Our waitress was fun and friendly and very accommodating. The neighorhood feel of the restaurant was also present as the crowds flocked after ten o’clock p.m. and chatted with strangers, packed together in the aisles and on the mini dance floor.
Cost: Average ($10-$15 per appetizer plate)
