Parlour is a Coolidge Corner American restaurant in a space so narrow you can almost stand in the middle and touch both walls. It has a small menu consisting mostly of small plates, some of which are both creative and good, like the Nashville hot chicken donuts and the cheese fudge (which, for $8, is a perfect drinking snack). If you live in the area, or if you’re going to the Coolidge Corner Theater because you have the soul of someone who works in an 80s video rental store and geeks out about movies, this is a place you should keep in mind.
