A word from Perry St
Join us for NYC Restaurant Week 2014 starting July 21st through August 16th. We will be offering a $25 three-course lunch and $38 three-course dinner on Monday through Friday and on Sunday evenings during this period.



Chef Jean-Georges brings relaxed elegance to the West Village with Perry St, which opened in 2005 and has been awarded three stars by the New York Times.
Jean-Georges’ son, Cedric Vongerichten, helms the kitchen, creating dishes that reflect his own keen instinct for balancing flavor and texture with an exquisite blend of French, American, and Asian influences and ingredients. The menu is inspired by the season, centering on the local market at Union Square.

    We had a lovely brunch at Perry Street this Labor Day Weekend. The menu was varied and ranged from traditional brunch items to lunch specialties which included poached lobster, sushi and their signature fried chicken. Brunch items included great pancakes, french toast and a variety of unique egg dishes. Wines were superb and service was spot on. This is a lovely, bright, modern restaurant located steps from the Battery Park promenade. Highly recommended for lunch or dinner.

    We love Perry street and come as often as we can. The view, the service, the wine, the food, can't be beat. I love the tuna rice rolls and the salads, and the entrees are sophisticated but not gratuitously busy. My only beef is with the desserts. We had three desserts at the table and I would not order a single one of them again. The chocolate had too much fresh mint and came off as bitter and medicinal (the ice cream matched it in herbal strength), the olive oil ice cream begged the question "why?", and the strawberry desert came with leathery dried strawberry coins that were conversation-stoppers. Still the appetizers and entrees were blissful, the restaurant lively but not deafening and the service top notch. Of course we'll be back!

    This was our first time at this trendy and classy restaurant, but it won't be our last. Every course was perfectly prepared and presented, and the waiter was unfailingly gracious and helpful without being cloying or intrusive. The decor is modern and sophisticated, but the room nonetheless is comfortable, not cold. Top marks all around.

    Read good comments about this restaurant on Open table and decided to try it. The place is modern and the decor is very nice (uncluttered). The service was friendly and professional. I ordered the Crispy French Toast and my hubby the Buttermilk Pancakes. The French toast presentation was WOW. Don't they say that we eat with our eyes first? :) Coffee was also perfectly balanced! Great place! Merci.

    Was there during restaurant week 2014. The menu was boring, there was way too much noise (loud Rihanna and other dance music playing) and the waiter rushed our three course menu through so that we finished within one hour. I guess so that they could sell the table one more time. I know the restaurant week menu is cheaper but if you can't afford to serve it, don't.

    The chocolate molten cake was to die for! Best thing on the menu. When I asked how do they do this, the waiver responded softly: "magic". Unfortunately the hake wasn't cooked 100% through, but that we overlooked that due to the fine quality of the food generally.

    Calamari good. Salmon sashimi was with flavorfully spiced broth but salmon could have used touch of sea salt. Fried chicken not particuarly seasoned, breast meat dry!!! Rabbit was excellent. Molten chocolate cake, a cliche but excellent! Chef cooks with spiced Asian flair. Would go back. However they should not allow children below 5, as there was a screaming baby!!!!!! And I mean screaming!! Why parents have such a sense of entitlement is beyond me! You can afford to eat here? Then you can afford a babysitter. Get one! Or pay for everyone' s meal because you have ruined theirs. Management needs to exercise discretion because it ruins dining experience for others. ( yes I have a child too).

    Absolutely one of the best dining experiences I've had in NYC! The crafted cocktails, professional and friendly service and superlative food will ensure that I will be back. I went there for Restaurant Week and was impressed that they did not skimp on the portion sizes or make us feel like second class citizens as one us ordered off the $38 'deal' menu.The entrees,we had the butter poached lobster and the fried chicken, were terrific and the cocktails were much better than they had to be --- impressive that they make their own cola for their version of a rum and coke, for example. Our server was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the food and have us some expert recommendations.

    It is more out of politeness that I continue to rate the superb service and food at Perry Street. Consistent, delicious, imaginative in a wonderful setting with excellent wine value at lunch. Staff are attentive without being intrusive. Kitchen is competent and you will find many themes lovingly prepared a la Jean George's other dining rooms. We continue to enjoy the food, atmosphere and recommend the serenity of lunch to anyone in the neighborhood. You should try it, you most likely will love it too.

    Went for Restaurant Week, but got sidetracked by all the delicious offerings on their menu. Salmon sushi starter with light, crisp lemongrass sauce was my favorite, though everything was delicious (we also tried the calamari, & fried chicken and lobster mains The mint ice cream served with the chocolate mouse was exceptional. Molten chocolate cake also a great choice. Service was spot on and very attentive. Tables are a bit close to each other, so not the place for a romantic meal or private conversation, but that didn't bother us at all. Loved it - will be back!

    This restaurant is located at the bottom of an unassuming apartment building which you might miss, but the food is fantastic and the service is great. We selected the crispy calamari and sweet pea soup as appetizers, mussels and the fried chicken as our main followed by the chocolate cake and sorbet for dessert (from their summer brunch menu). All the dishes were good but the crispy calamari was especially delightful and so were the mussels that came in a lovely Thai broth. Service was excellent too with the hostess quickly ushering us to our table when we came in and our waitress being very attentive and courteous. We will definitely come again.

    We had the restaurant week dinner that had only two choices for each of 3 courses. Between us, we tried all the offerings. As it turned out one of the first course was excellent and the other much too skimpy and nothing special. Of the main courses, both were very good but one contained enough food for someone who was hungry and the second, though delicious was too small to satisfy the hunger for someone who is used to having a dinner that would sustain him through the night. Desserts were delicious though not unusual or special

    The bread was stale, and the amuse bouche was a glaring, disagreeable strawberry gazpacho that was basically a vinegar blast with not much supporting character. While the yuzu broth for the salmon sashimi and the miso-glaze for the hake were both very good tasting, neither worked very well with their respective fish-ingredient. The broth/sauce overwhelmed the neither tender nor especially flavorful salmon. The sweet miso glaze was laid on the top of the thick ( not extremely fresh ) tranche of hake ... the "sauced" component of the fish was very sweet, contrasting, inauspiciously with the unglazed portions. The bread, too, was clearly not fresh ... a regrettable

    Went for Restaurant Week lunch and it was excellent, food, service and ambience. The Restaurant Week menu was not the usual small portions or less than top notch food but it was really excellent value. There was also a nice bottle of wine at a very reasonable price to go with the meal. The restaurant is to be congratulated on delivering great value and food. It might be a little out of the way, but worth the diversion.

    I am a bit disappointed by my recent experience at Perry St. We had ordered the restaurant week menu. The entire meal was served over the course of 50 minutes. The "amuse bouche" were served as the appetizers were coming in. The rest of meal was rushed to on our table in a similar fashion - casting some doubts on how/when the food was prepared. Also I should mention that you should not be too keen on having bread with your meal, which was eaten with the appetizer; the bread plate remaining helplessly empty for the rest of the meal. Further, the portion served with the restaurant week menu are small - which is inconsistent with similar restaurants in the neighborhood and maybe also the spirit of restaurant week. "Dommage!"

    Perry Street Restaurant Week menu was quite limited. But the food was worth the schlepp over to the West Side. Appetizers of beet salad or sashimi type plate were great, and the 2 entrees were also superb. The hake was a tiny portion, but every bite was perfect. The fried chicken was more ample, spicy, moist and delicious. Desserts were also wonderful, a rich, molten chocolate cake or a light fresh berry dish, perfect for the summer. We were all quite thrilled. Our bottle of wine was not cheap, but it was quite nice. My one criticism was the sparse wine list. They need more choices at a greater diversity of prices.

    Exquisite and simple decor. Unfortunately, at the time I was there, there was construction being done on the outside, so it was hard to recognize it as a restaurant. The dishes were appropriate portions for a single serving of food, unlike other places where they make you feel guilty for not being able to gorge a mountain of their cuisine. The dishes are creative twists on foods you already know and love. My salmon was a little undercooked for my preference, but it may have been my fault while ordering (since I am usually not asked how I want my fish prepared). My husband was a little underwhelmed with his fried chicken, but I thought it was quite tasty. Servers are the best I've ever had. Overall, great meal and experience!
