Where To Eat in NYC, Volume 23

So it was back to Perla on Friday for lunch.  Great room, great vibe, great service, delicious food.  What’s changed is that about a month ago the kitchen put the dinner menu onto the lunch menu.  So the food is heavier, and bigger portioned, and, well, it was delicious, but too much of a good thing.

#7 in Brooklyn, Fort Greene, later that same day, around midnight, had the compulsory tatted staff and good music and delicious food, too.  Simple and good.  Nothing pretentious about it.  Like Perla in that way.

The very next day, Red Cat in Chelsea: Again, a lovely room, good service, and delicious food.  Thinly sliced, raw zucchini with almonds and good olive oil, etc.  A perfect place for a simple lunch.

And that night: Il Buco.  On Great Jones.  I’ve now become a regular, and for good reason: Fried artichoke, sardines, terrific pastas, great duck, wonderful branzino.  This restaurant is just so convivial.  And light!
