Perry St by Jean-Georges

By Seth Fera-Schanes

Perry St restaurant sits on the edge of the West Village and across the west side highway from Hudson River Park. With a modern design, cool crowd, attentive staff and of course good food, Perry St is a spot to add to your NYC restaurant list.

I stopped by for the tail end of restaurant week and had a three course meal for the prix fixe price of $38.  The Perry St menu is a mix of New American and French and definitely plays up the contemporary feel with artistic plating and twists on classic American dishes.

After dinner be sure to take a stroll north along the Hudson.  The scenic water and city skyline are a perfect end to a nice meal.


Amuse-bouche of chilled tomato soup which was a contender for favorite part of the dinner.  Deep flavor and a great way to start the meal.

Main course of classic fried chicken with a Scotch Bonnet sauce.  Don’t be concerned about this pepper as the chef did a nice job to provide the taste of the pepper with a presence of heat but nothing raw that would burn your mouth.  The roasted Hake with miso-yuzu glaze was well prepared and had a nice slight sweetness.

Finishing out the meal was a molten chocolate cake and toasted almond cake with lemon verbena ice cream (another highlight.) Major ice cream chains should take note that I want lemon verbena ice cream available in stores immediately.
