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.
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.
