We went to Perla’s for dinner last week. We sat in the bar (lately I’ve much preferred sitting in the bar area of restaurants. It’s less formal, and I feel better about ordering just appetizers or whatnot).
They’ve updated their cocktail menu. I had a Fog Cutter (rum-based fruity drink that reminded me of Jamaica), and Justin had a rye mint julep.
They brought out tiny hush puppies while we waited.
I had grilled oysters with bacon and breadcrumbs. So smoky and delicious.
Of course Justin had raw oysters.
We shared the tomato-oyster chowder. So delicious.
And of course the fried calamari and peppers.
We’re so lucky to be able to enjoy all these great restaurants, and to live in a city that prides itself on good food. :)
