Perry St., New York, NY

Perry St. Restaurant Review

: As the sun sets over the Hudson River, its last rays filter through floor-to-ceiling windows and illuminate the serene interior of Perry St., a restaurant in Jean-Georges Vongerichten's gastronomic empire. Unlike the exoticism of Spice Market and the extravagance of Jean-Georges, this eatery is his elegantly casual neighborhood place, where soft, curvy banquettes and an earthy color palette soften the linear lines of Richard Meier's modern glass-covered building. Amidst mellow music and the melodious chatter of the chic crowd, the conscientious staff serves up very pleasing New American cuisine with hints of worldly panache, beginning with appetizers like citrus risotto with sea urchin or rice cracker-encrusted tuna in a Sriracha-citrus emulsion. Entrées follow the same philosophy, including lamb shank with purple potato and oyster mushroom tempura; Maine shellfish in green curry; and butter-poached lobster in a lemongrass-makrut lime broth with potato ravioli. Lastly, a choice dessert is a wedge of brown butter carrot cake with cream cheese frosting and coconut sorbet. Chocolate pudding has also been upscaled, with fresh cream and crystalized violets.
