Parla in the North End is probably the coolest restaurant in a neighborhood that doesn’t have a lot of places you’d use that adjective for. That’s what you get when you combine a menu that includes a picture of Biggie Smalls, really good cocktails the restaurant manages to put together despite having only a partial liquor license, and copper decor that will make you want to call the bartender “barkeep.” We suggest sticking with the bites and small plates.
