Southern restaurant The Parish launched nine new menu items on Thursday, August 22.
"[The menu expansion was due to] my decision to continue expanding our restaurant's southern reach along with Tucson's food culture and my growing up here as a new culinary direction," The Parish owner-chef Travis Peters said.
Hot off the heels of his victory at the California Giant Berry Farms 2019 Chef Invitational, Peters also included the Blueberry Sweet Tea Smoked Chicken, inspired by his dish that won the competition.
