Persimmon Restaurant Review

: Owner-chef Damian Salvatore’s Persimmon attracts a sophisticated crowd. His menu emphasizes seafood but also offers several offbeat treatments of pasta and hearty meat dishes. Start with the very fine mushroom and blue cheese ravioli or the mussels. Then, at lunch, dig into his hanger steak frites with a heady wine sauce. At dinner, consider the Caribbean-style pork rack or perhaps the Atlantic bouillabaisse. And if the chef whipped it up for the day, insist on a slice of his cheesecake, one of the best on the East Coast. Or you can end simply with the delicate crème brûlée. Reservations are essential at night. As would be expected, this bright, shiny, upscale eatery offers a compelling wine list with selections from around the world.
