Perilla: Restaurant Review

Last night we ate with friends at Perilla, at 9 Jones Street in the West Village.  The place is pretty and was very full.

They have a smart bar menu, with items like Duck Fat Popcorn for $3.  I think all places with a bar should serve little bar appetizers like that.  They can make a little money on them instead of serving a free bowl of nuts or olives.

The food was pretty good.  We had the calamari salad which was served with crispy watercress, which was delicious! There was a soft shell crab appetizer that was yummy too.  The baby romaine salad with sliced plums and bee pollen (that’s a new one) vinagrette was great too.

I didn’t like the entrees as much as the appetizers, but I almost never do.  However, the potato croquettes that came with the steak were incredible and I piggishly ate two.  That equalled an extra five minutes on the treadmill this morning and I probably still have to work the second one off, but it was totally worth it.

There were four of us at dinner and we give it four thumbs up.
