Perrone's is the best.
Beautiful and comfortable atmosphere, unparalleled hospitality, impeccable service, inventive plates prepared from the best fresh ingredients. You want more? Check out the vast (and I mean, v a s t) offering of adult beverages. I've never seen anything even remotely close to this selection in another restaurant.
The lunch and dinner menus reflect a little whimsy and playfulness, and a lot of serious respect for food. Who doesn't want to eat food prepared by people who want to bring out the absolute best of the ingredients?
So, it really is all about the food, and the beverages. And the service. And the hospitality. And the atmosphere most conducive to enjoying all of the aforementioned. It's culinary alchemy.
Earlier this spring, I stopped by Perrone's for a relaxing lunch. I started with some of their wonderful homemade bread and butter, then this was my first time to enjoy the lobster mac & cheese, which was rich and satisfying without being heavy. It was accompanied by a great side salad, crisp cucumber slices, and beautiful, bright heirloom tomato sections. For dessert, I had a sort of riff on an ice cream sandwich, a chocolate cookie topped with mint chocolate chip ice cream and whipped cream. It tasted exactly how winter-into-spring feels, and it was a perfect dessert. Wonderful service from Ryan.
With Perrone's, I am always looking forward to the next time.
