Tonight: Parisi offers an end-of-December discount

Parisi, the beloved restaurant at 4401 Tennyston Street, is looking at a big night on New Year's Eve -- or Cenone di Capodanno, as they say in Italy. "We can't serve our New Year's Eve menu two days in a row due to its special ingredients (can you say cured foie gras?) and have been receiving calls from dear friends who just can't get out on Thursday," laments owner Simone Parisi. "So what can we do?"

This: from 5:30 to 8 p.m. tonight, if you dine at Firenze a Tavola -- the community table Parisi features every Wednesday -- you get 20 percent off your entire bill, including food and wine.
