Perrys Restaurant Review

: The young and the restless --- and plenty of others too --- have turned Perrys into an Adams Morgan event. Climbing the stone staircase to its second-story address, you might think you've slipped into a period piece: it's decorated in burgundy and red and lit by a funky and improbable chandelier. The long bar and the rooftop dining annex are lively places that attract a worldly set. The menu includes unusual Japanese sushi and some Korean- and Chinese-style dishes (bulgogi, kung pao chicken with walnuts). Perrys may put on a nightlong party, but its most outrageous event is the Sunday morning brunch --- you have to see it to believe it. Perrys does not take reservations for the brunch, so arrive early as a line forms before the restaurant opens.
