Dining Out | Perry St

Last night, Mr. V took me out for a delicious dinner at Perry St in the West Village. Located on the bottom floor of a Richard Meier designed apartment building, the restaurant has a sleek, contemporary design that well suits the architecture of the space. The food is similarly refined, its cuisine mirroring the restraint of the decor.

I ordered a ginger margarita and Mr. V had a Templeton Rye with an orange twist (later to be followed by a glass of Grüner Veltliner for me, and a second whiskey for Mr. V). Our first sampling of the food was the delicious amuse-bouche - potato soup with a truffle emulsion and Yukon chips - one of the best bites of the whole night! We had two appetizers, a tasty house-made burrata with fig tapenade and grilled sourdough, as well as sweet chili crab dumplings with cilantro and celeriac (pictured below). We both agreed that the dumplings were to die for...They really just melt in your mouth.

For our entrée, we ordered two fish dishes to share. The grilled cod with miso mushrooms was accompanied by roasted parsnips and yuzu, a great dish in which the fish was perfectly cooked. We also had the pan seared black sea bass with oyster mushrooms and basil sauce, which was well-seasoned and delicious, but I would give the slight edge to the cod, which was a bit more lush. For dessert, we had pumpkin tiramisu and two steaming cups of coffee. This was a fantastic evening - our best Valentine's ever, I do say! - and I'm so lucky to have had such a lovely meal in the company of the always fun and amazing Mr. V.
