Restaurant Week: Perry St

It's that magical time of year again when restaurants offer the incredible $35 three course meal and this year I wanted to check out Perry St. The restaurant is lovely, bright and modern with a gorgeous view of the Hudson that's even better at sunset.

Perry St added special touches onto their restaurant week menu, starting with this watermelon gazpacho that was just sweet enough and had a surprise disc of lychee inside.

The chili crab dumplings were simply amazing. The dough was light, the crab plentiful and flavorful, and topped with bright sugar snap peas.

The heirloom tomato and mozzarella salad was bright and fresh, and made all the more interesting with unexpected accents of mini raspberries, pickled chilies and radishes.

I'm still tasting the light, crunchy and perfect coating on this chicken, which was also juicy and full of flavor. The spicy pea puree, pickled onions and greens were the perfect accompaniments.

The cod in ratatouille was so light and delicate, a great summer dish.

Chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream are at their best here with a gooey center and topped with a crunchy sweet cracker.

The berry soup with raspberries, strawberries, cherries and blueberries topped with fromage blanc sorbet was a light refreshing ending to an incredible meal.
