Village Voice's Description
At Parm, Mario Carbone and Rich Torrisi's sequel to Torrisi Italian Specialties, a hodgepodge of Italian-American sandwiches, red-sauce seafood standards, and a $25 nightly special compose the menu. Although such heftier plates (like Tuesday's meaty aged chopped steak or Friday's zuppa di pesce) are certainly respectable offerings. Parm is at its finest during lunch. That's when the namesake sandwiches truly shine. Plus, the cramped quarters—mostly two-tops plus a long counter with ruby-hued backless stools—discourage leisurely group dining. Other dishes to try include the fried mozzarella sticks, baked clams, calamari, and the six-inch tall ice cream cake.
Tips from foursquare
chicken parm, platter-style, with the extra cheese and pasta is my new favorite over a sandwich
Dare I say best mozzarella sticks in the city??
The chicken parm is good, but the eggplant parm sandwich is perfect. Thinly sliced, drenched in their homemade tomato sauce, and sprinkled with fresh basil on top.
Along with amazing sandwiches, they have a killer 80/90s soundtrack. I asked for a mix tape and was told Jay-Z was there recently and asked the same thing.
Octopii roller-skate here from miles around to try the calamari
