Five years after opening, Sweet_ness 7 on Parkside Avenue is becoming an English-inspired neighborhood restaurant.
Owner Prish Moran is turning her crepes-and-coffee spot at 301 Parkside Ave. into a casual place centered around English-style pies and sharing plates.
Sweet_ness 7 Parkside will close Jan. 11, Moran said. It will reopen, hopefully before Valentine’s Day weekend, as P. Moran’s. Her Sweet_ness 7 restaurant on Grant Street will remain open.
The menu isn’t set yet, but expect pies based on organic ingredients in flavors like Guinness beef, ratatouille, and Gruyere and cheddar mac and cheese pie, Moran said. Not to mention cheese boards, vegetable boards with dips, salads, stews and more, she said. Figgy pudding will be among sweets.
Beer and wine will include sustainable wines from around the world under $30 a bottle, she said. P. Moran’s will be evenings-only at first, she noted. She’s aiming for a “crusty, cozy candlelit den atmosphere” that reminds her of the neighborhood pubs she enjoyed during a recent trip to England.
“It is the place that I want to go to and can't find in my neighborhood,” said Moran. “I’m getting into my English roots.”
