Went to Perry Street last night. I thought the restaurant was very warm, but at the same time stylish and sleek. The service throughout the entire meal was flawless, and we didn't feel as if we were treated any different than if we had ordered off the regular menu.
There were two choices for each course. A third option would have been great, but we knew the story when it comes to the restaurant week menu. The chicken soup choice for the appetizer was a little weak in my opinion, but the fresh, housemade mozzerella app that both my friend and I ordered was really tasty. The pomegrantes added an unexpected and delicious flavor to an otherwise unexciting selection.
We both also ordered the skate, which was very good. It had an interesting spice going on, and the 'broccolini" served with the skate was very fresh. The other choice was chicken, and I usually never order chicken out.
The dessert was a chocolate flourless cake for both of us. Also very good.
In summary, my friend and I felt that with the $35 price tag, the meal was fair and we got what we paid for. I'd like to go back and order from the regular menu, but maybe when someone else is paying the bill! They had what looked to be a great short ribs dish and a poached lobster in butter that sparked my interest. Another nice touch was they had both a red and white wine special by the bottle for $25. We went with the Cotes Du Rhone, which was mellow but went well with the food.
