Perla vs. Rosemary's - birthday "hooky" lunch

e2nyc | Sep 11, 2012 01:27 PM

Hello all!

My SO and I are playing hooky on his b-day and I am planning on taking him out for a nice celebratory lunch. I currently have a lunch reservation at Del Posto for 9/21, but in all honesty, it's not my #1 choice. I have been waiting for Salumeria Rosi to open up in the UES and it just feels as if this is never going to happen!

So far, Perla and Rosemary's seem to be the closest to what I am looking for... A more laid back setting, but still presenting an impressive meal. Only problem is, I haven't been to either, so my decision is that much tougher.

Has anyone been to either or both of these restaurants that can provide me with pros/cons for each? or if you have any other suggestions, please feel free to point out!

Thank you in advance!
