Parasol's for Sale
William Hock, whose family opened Parasol's in 1952 and ran it until 2000, is selling Parasol's for $600,000, although the deal is not done yet. Jeff Carreras, who has run it since 2000, is opening Tracey's at 2604 Magazine, one block away. Hock is selling the the property and the business, so the Florida couple will get the recipes and, if they know what they are doing, the food should return to its former glory. I liked the place in the 70's and 80's, but have found it under par in the last 5 years.
