“While The Cookery was merely mischievous when it dared to de-emphasize the accepted standards of Westchester’s Italian restaurants…The Parlor steps almost joyfully into the role of provocateur.”
If you have visited DoughNation, DiBari’s mobile, wood-fueled pizza truck, you will be familiar with the puffy, lightly charred discs that won its rabid fans.
One way to consider Chef David DiBari’s newest venture, The Parlor, in Dobbs Ferry, is to think of this new pizzeria as David DiBari unchained. While The Cookery was merely mischievous when it dared to de-emphasize the accepted standards of Westchester’s Italian restaurants—say, thick tablecloths and pricy Barolos—The Parlor steps almost joyfully into the role of provocateur. On The Parlor’s corrugated, graffiti-tagged walls, you won’t find one inch of Carrera marble, and, just look around, here are no subway tiles. Instead, The Parlor’s décor is just what you bring to it. Literally. But for an underlayment of graffiti (itself, crowd sourced in a contest), The Parlor’s decor invites you to scrawl Your Name Here.
