A word from Perry St
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.

    Fried chicken is a must-try! I was there around 9 p.m. Thursday night, when the place was still somewhat crowded but by the time we finished eating, it was quiet, romantic.

    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!

    Spacious so great for groups. Food from the prix-fixe menu of restaurant week isn't bad, they had two options. My bf & I picked one of each. Both were delicious, from appetizers to dessert. A lil too far off a walk since it's off West Side Highway but I guess I could use a lil walk after eating :)

    I arrived there 20 min later than reservation time, while my friend has arrived in time. But they cancelled my reservation and told me that I was required to leave there in an hour due to cancellation caused by my half-hour late. It was a dinner we're looking forward to. Why they need to cancel it while my friend has already arrived there? I'm really disappointed. Never return. Never recommend.

    I have never eaten at Perry St. before so I had no expectations. The food was so beautifully and lovingly prepared, not to mention delicious. The calamari appetizer was the most tender I've ever tasted, and I've tasted a lot. The sesame dipping sauce was wonderful. The fried chicken was a slight disappointment, however; very pedestrian flavor. The molten chocolate cake and ice cream was superb. Overall, it was perhaps the most enjoyable Restaurant Week meal I have experienced. Can't wait to go back.

    Gastronomy115VIP
    Dined on 7/28/2014
    This must be the strangest JG restaurant in the city. For a self-professed American eatery, it lacks much of the charm that American food requires. From poorly fried chicken (in all honesty, it's probably a very expensive step down from KFC) to a peach tart that tasted like overly burnt sugar (so overdone that I could not swallow my first bite), I left Perry St a bit bewildered. The best of the dishes was the house-made burrata. It was delicious--creamy, tart, sweet, and refreshing. Same goes for the salmon, which was perfectly cooked. The molten chocolate cake was a nice finishing touch, with the caveat that it was molten unto becoming fondue. The ambience is 60's chic, service is fair. Go, but not for American.

    Everything was wonderful except the service.The person who took our order very rudely interrupted our conversation and went on and on describing the cocktails when it was clear we were only interested in ordering wines. We placed our order and there was a mixup with one of the starter. During the meal we wanted to order more wine, it took for ever to attract her attention when the restaurant was not overwhelmed by patrons. The wines were finally ordered and it took so long for delivery that we were basically finished with the main dish when the wines arrived. One of our guest ordered a Cafe Filtre (he is English), to my amazement she didn't ask what it was and a cup of insipid coffee was delivered. We didn't bother sending it back.

    After having eaten at Jean Georges a couple of days before, perhaps it was setting ourselves up for disappointment. Thinking that the experience and food quality would be at par was clearly a mistake. Although the decor is lovely, the location is remote, and the service uncoordinated. The food was good but not spectacular. The dessert, though delicious, was totally oversized for its richness. The cocktails were delicious, but the fried chicken was over battered and a bit dry. Overall, I would come back for a drink, but I'll probably take my culinary experience elsewhere.

    It was Restaurant Week & we were older & less fashionable than most of the clientele--some restaurants would have shunned us. At Perry St, we were treated very well. The food was special (if a tad rich), service was great. Among the 3 of us we had all the dishes on the RW menu & enjoyed everything immensely. Wine list was on the expensive side but we enjoyed a few bottles of a very nice $38 Cotes du Rhone. Highly recommended!

    Perry Street has delivered once again for Restaurant Week. Although the selections were very limited (two) in each course, the cooking and combination of flavors dazzled the palate. I can't say enough about the calamari appetizer. What a superb concoction of crisp, creamy and savory flavors. The salmon was a pure delite and the berry cake dessert outstanding. I've been to dinner here before but not in a very long time and can't believe what I've been missing all this time. The regular lunch menu was very tempting as well with a prix fixe $36/three course menu. it was very nice that there were very reasonable bottles of wine ($20) to accompany the Restaurant Week lunch. Don't miss this place on your dining forays.

    I'm sold. Perry Street is excellent on all fronts - food, service, decor - superb quality at a reasonable price. Kudos to the chef and management. Great appetizers - burrata (with strawberries and almonds), lightly fried calamari with phenomenal dipping sauce; entrees - the fried chicken is to die for (great presentation, with creamed corn and light brown sauce for dipping); deserts - chocolate molten cake is just right with a perfectly warm center. Finally a New York restaurant that pleases the palate of a former New Orleanian. Will definitely be back.

    I'd been wanting to try Perry St. for a while since working in the neighborhood. The food did not disappoint, we went for Restaurant Week lunch and everything was delicious and beautiful. The burrata and fried chicken were standouts; the blueberry cake was a bit of a let down. Service was warm and accommodating. The only thing that makes this a 4-star experience rather than a 5-star one is the soulless, blandly corporate design and vibe of the restaurant. I would still highly recommend Perry St. for business meals or a foodie-focused evening, as long as you're not looking for a romantic or hip atmosphere.

    Perry St provided a wonderful dining experience. The food was great. The starters and amuse were stellar. The entrees were great, but it was hard to compete with the those first bites. The service was attentive without being stuffy. A beautiful space- big booths, nice lighting and comfortable modern decor - and a nice drink list. Would be a great place to take someone who is a bit of a foodie and will appreciate the attention to all the details.

    I got there 10 minutes before the rest of my party and they told me they couldn't sit me but didn't even offer me to go to the bar or lounge to wait and had me standing there for the whole time. The food was really good but the salmon was a bit raw. I like it like that but they didn't even ask and it could have been very disgusting for some people.
