I have been wanting to dine at this West Village gem for awhile now and finally had the chance to tonight, with one of my friends who has a fashion blog: Disciples of Haute. Though it’s a bit far from most trains and all the way by West End, it was worth it. Perry St oozes with class, and has a beautiful interior with a delightful view of the Hudson.
We started off with bread and a delicious amuse-bouche of a Roasted Potato Soup with truffle emulsion and potato chips that warmed us up for the rest of the meal. For the appetizer, we had goat cheese fondue spring roll and a nice salad to go with it which helped to clean my palate. I normally am not overly fond of goat cheese, but in this dish it was very good- A great flavor and loved the crunchiness of it.
The main course of braised short ribs with green apple reduction, were done just right. It was the kind of meat that is so tender that it comes off right away and melts in your mouth. It was full of great flavors and incredibly juicy.
Dessert was the simply divine Molten Chocolate Cake with vanilla ice cream, accented with shortbread crumbs! The cake was warm, oozing with high quality chocolate and I tried to savor each little bit. Even though I was already quite full, the molten chocolate cake was so perfectly delectable that I managed to finish it all. We were given a truffle as the very last piece to this masterpiece of a meal.
Overall, Perry St is a spacious and intimate spot with clean modern decor and impeccable service, with great New American dishes that have delicious pairings of flavor.
Address: 176 Perry Street.
