Description: Perry St has reopened! Chef Jean-Georges brings relaxed elegance to the West Village with Perry St, which opened in 2005 and has been awarded three stars by the New York Times. Located in the spectacular Richard Meier Towers, the restaurant offers beautiful waterfront views of the Hudson River. The stunning dining room was designed by Thomas Juul-Hansen, whose Danish background lends a mid-century modern design sensibility. Jean-Georges' son, Cedric Vongerichten, helms the kitchen, creating dishes that reflect his own keen instinct for balancing flavor and texture with an exquisite blend of French, American, and Asian influences and ingredients. The menu is inspired by the season, centering on the local market at Union Square. The perfect restaurant for special events and group dining.

This is one of Jean-George Vonegrichten's restaurants in NYC, mid-range in price, high in quality and service. Let me start with the service. I went for lunch in the middle of "restaurant week", which lasts nearly a month nowadays. After I started eating, two young ladies were seated at the next table. One of them told the waitress she was vegetarian and asked for advice. The waitress went to consult with the chef, and came back with some suggestions. Then the lady said she wanted to pay restaurant week rates, which are at lunch $25 for a very limited choice of plates. The waitress went back to the chef and then offered some combinations. This ping pong game went on, the waitress made at least 5 visits to the chef. I do not know how this was resolved, since in the meantime I ate, paid and left, but it seems to me service way beyond the call of duty.

Now to the food. For starters I had the grilled Spanish octopus. I am a fan of these beasts, and this was one of the best ever. Done just right, with a soft consistence but still making you feel you bite something. The sauce was sophisticated, revealing new tastes at each bite. It was accompanied by tasty potatoes and peppers.

The rabbit that followed was every bit as good. You get grilled loin and crispy leg, with a variety of tastes and consistences, accompanied by great artichokes. All in all, a symphony of tastes. I finished with a very good espresso, and went away feeling quite happy.

Everything was great. The service is friendly and attentive. The wines were excellent. The food was very good, although not at the very highest standard. I sensed that Perry Street is trying to be the best restaurant in its neighborhood and to attract repeat diners from its area.

We went there for restaurant week. For appetizers we had the cheese dish (burrata) which was delicious and calamari which was good but nothing to go crazy over. We also had the fried chicken and salmon dish. My husband and I both preferred the chicken which had a nice crispy batter over the slow cooked salmon. The molten cake with ice cream was delicious as well. We didn't care much for the other dessert (I can't remember the name right now). Overall it was a very good dining experience and service was excellent. I will return.

It's about as far West as you can go without being underwater (and apparently they were after Sandy), and I do wish it were a little quieter inside. But the food here is superb, as is the service, and it's a little like being on vacation. Fish is great, chicken remarkable, and do not skip dessert. Worth every calorie.
