Village Voice's Description

Chef Harold Dieterle of Babylon, Long Island, has extended his winning streak on the first season of Top Chef by opening Perilla, a new restaurant named for the aromatic leaf known in Japan as shiso. His cooking tends to have Asian flourishes, as in his signature steamed red snapper Thai style, which bathes a fluffy filet in fragrant green curry. Other worthwhile offerings include grilled hanger steak on a bed of sculpted greens, cuttlefish and chestnuts in guanciale broth, and, especially, pork belly with pea shoots and trumpet mushrooms. The dining room is comfortable and plain, with a neighborhood-y vibe.

It is tucked down a quiet side street off Bleecker in the Village. I've heard great things about their brunch menu as well.

The duck meatball appetizer was insanely good and I had a fish in a green curry sauce that was delicious. They have a great wine list that is relatively inexpensive (particularly by New York standards) and the red velvet cake is probably one... More >>

    The Perilla plant is a relative of mint and basil but has a strong anise-like flavor. Primarily used in Asian cooking, Perilla is most commonly known as Shiso.
