January is a time of new beginnings, and as 2016 kicks off I’m excited to share with you that this coming March we’ll be relocating Perla to 234 West 4th Street. After four years in our current home at 24 Minetta Lane, we’ve decided to make the move to a new space a few blocks away.

We will be taking our entire team and so many fond memories from our current location. Minetta Lane has been good to us and we’ve loved welcoming you there, but the space on West 4th Street, opposite Bar Sardine, speaks to me on a personal and emotional level. Many of our restaurants occupy corner spaces and I know the charm and power of a great West Village corner. The new space will bring Perla closer to the community of our other restaurants and to a busy, energetic intersection.

In making this move, we’ll continue to evolve Perla in to the great everyday neighborhood Italian restaurant that we always wanted it to be. We’ll build on the changes we made last spring when Chef Jack Harris took over the kitchen and in addition to serving dinner seven nights a week, we’ll also be introducing new menus for daytime lunch and weekend brunch. We can’t wait to have you in to dine with us not just in the evening, but also in the light of day!

While holding on to all the things that we and so many of our guests love about Perla, we look forward to bringing a new atmosphere in to this beautiful, sunny space that looks out on to West 4th and West 10th Streets. Perla will be leaving Minetta Lane in mid-February and reopening its doors on West 4th Street only a few short weeks later. We hope you’ll join us in saying farewell to our current location over the coming weeks, and come visit us in our new home in early March. We look forward to welcoming you there!
