Hi all - I want to get a feel of what Perla's is like. I'm 'paying my accountant' his annual fee for doing my taxes (taking my mom and dad to dinner). They're from Ft. Worth and fit the old school definition of foodie - gourmand. I'm branching out from the previous spots we've been going annually (Wink, Olivia Fino, back in the day it was Demiepicurious, Sardine Rouge, and Emilia). We want to try out Perla's
Dad is a 'coat at the restaurant' kind of guy, mom pretty much the same genre. This doesn't mean that they scoff at 'Austin casual', but I wouldn't take him for this dinner to Foreign and Domestic - too loud and too closely packed (I had a great dinner at the bar there).
So - how's the feel of Perla's? I've not been through the door but have a reservation for this Saturday... are we in for 'culture clash'?
