  • Rated a Top 5 Newcomer by Zagat 2008, Midtown brings an authentic taste of eastern Mediterranean cuisine to Manhattan.

Pera features numerous mezes, specially prepared and marinated cuts of grilled meats and seafood, traditional and modern Mediterranean side dishes and regional breads baked a la minute.

    The main courses focus on delicately marbled grilled meats that are cooked on a 10-foot-long open flame grill.
