There’s something to be said for dining late at night in New York City — having arrived half hour late for our 9:30 dinner at the hot spot Perry Street restaurant, I presumed our party would be the only remaining table come 11 o’ clock. Boy was I wrong — as we were headed out, people were practically being seated. Impressive Jean Georges, impressive.
A group of my best girl friends and I went to Perry Street — the best part of going out with that many women means many different dishes and many different opinions. I had the Beet and Goat Cheese salad with Champagne vinaigrette to start which was delicious, heavy on the goat cheese and rich in beet flavor. My entree was the sure fire winner, however, the dish was Cod with a Miso Glaze and Baby Bok Choy. It was absolutely delicious. My friends ordered the Sweet Chili Crab Dumplings with Cilantro, Pan Roasted Sea Bass with Portobello Fries (steer clear of these, they weren’t as tasty as they sound), and the Fried Chicken. All in all the dinner was successful — for a chic bustling dinner, definitely head to Perry Street.
