Parker's is to the midwest what Chez Panisse is to Berkeley, the pairing of fresh seasonal ingredients of local origins with the cuisines of country France.
The results sometimes work and sometimes not and since the menu changes, daily, consistency of taste is not what this restaurant is about. What it is about is using what you have to the fullest and Parker manages to pull that off fairly successfully.
If there were ""negatives"" I would have to say that 1) the atmosphere in the back room is less than what I had hoped for after seeing the entrance and 2) because the menu changes, daily, you don't always know, in advance, what will be the menu du jour. As I said, somethings work and some don't so you need a few trips to form an opinion about this place.
Mine is, overall, very positive.
