They elevate chicken, meatball or eggplant parm to "dizzying heights" at this NoLita adjunct of Torrisi, where "high-end heros" lead the "simple menu" of "Americanized Italian food at its best"; its diner-esque space is "tiny", so "come early" to avoid the "wait" and the "squish"; P.S. branches in Williamsburg, the UWS, Park Slope and Hudson Eats are in the works.

About the Restaurant

Following the footsteps of the Meatball Shop on nearby Allen Street, Parm specializes in hot Italian-American sandwiches. With its retro malt shop styling (vintage Coca-Cola ads, formica countertops, chrome stools topped with red leather) and beer taps in place of a soda fountain, this narrow restaurant is a sliver of trendy kitsch in fashionable SoHo. Parm's waitstaff, dressed in T-shirts and simple red aprons, take your order from a menu that is, predictably, focused on Parmesan sandwiches. They make them with meatballs, eggplant and, on Saturdays, veal. Though the most popular item is the classic chicken parm: a lightly breaded filet, fresh mozzarella and sweet, house-made marinara sauce on a semolina roll or hero. (Order the roll for a snack; a hero for a full meal.) There's also baked ziti with meat gravy and mozzarella balls wrapped in prosciutto, as well as veggie sides like roasted beets, spicy broccoli rabe and Brussels sprouts. Sugar-dusted zeppoles with hazelnut chocolate make for a sweet finale.
