Perry Street is very upscale in atmosphere, the people who worked there had wonderful smiles for you and were exceedingly friendly. I felt very relaxed and welcome.
While waiting, I sat at the bar and had a Raspberry-Lychee Belini - fantastic combination and so much nicer in so many ways to the classic way with peach nectar. This drink went great with the bar nibbles which included Rosemary and Olive Oil popcorn, almonds covered in brown sugar, cinnamon...and a healthy dose of white pepper (sweet with a kick!). The Wasabi Peanuts also looked yummy, but I chickened out. :)
At dinner, my husband mentioned that he was allergic to dairy to the waitress. Three seconds after she left, the person with the bread came over and let him know she will bring over olive oil to have with his bread. Talk about service!! (If you know someone with a food allergy - you'll get why we were so happy).
In addition, we did not feel we were pariahs at all. Every single item they placed on the table, they made a special version which was dairy-free! BTW, the roasted vegetables and fruit appetizer lost nothing of it's spectacular, wonderful flavor when the pecorino cheese was omitted The side of cheese I was served was not needed at all.
As an appetite-teaser, we were given little shot glass on the most amazing onion soup. My glass had a foam of cheese, which was tangy, yet light as air.
I can also highly recommend the Butter Poached Lobster (the butter sauce was seasoned with keffir lime leaves and lemongrass and given a similar treatment to the cheese above which took out completely the "grease" factor and brought the entire dish to new heights). They even asked if I wanted the sauce on the side, in case my husband wanted some lobster! My husband had the Roasted Hake and he said it was one of the best fish dished he has ever eaten.
I would go back in a heartbeat, but I do have to tell you that for the normal person, it is a bit pricey. I all definitely save it as a special occasion place,
