    Perch is a nice place for cocktails and small bites in East Harlem. They make really good cocktails (see picture), loved it, I also tried the shishito peppers that were pretty good. The decoration creates a cool environment and the place is neat. The kitchen looked clean as well as the bathroom. Noticed an issue with the bill but they were able to fix it.

    Went to Perch on a Thursday night for a date with my wife and we had a great experience. It’s a cozy, 25-seat tapas bar with a great drink menu and tasty small plates to share. The place is thoughtfully designed and the atmosphere felt very upscale.

    We ordered shishito peppers, croquettes, ceviche, smashed potatoes, and the scallops and everything was very unique and delicious! Our favorite was probably the croquettes as they were surprisingly tasty and packed with flavor. The ceviche was also really flavorful and a favorite. The scallops were good, albeit a bit salty and expensive (4 scallops for $23).

    Overall, I would definitely recommend this place and come back again.

    This place is a hidden gem! Delicious and unique cocktails, excellent scallops (not pictured because we scarffed them down so fast), and exceptional risotto. The ambiance is lovely as well, super cozy and intimate, and the bartender/waiter Derrick was friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Looking forward to our next evening here!

    Can lightning strike in the same place twice?

    In the case of East Harlem restaurateurs Leo Lauer and Darcie Siciliano, the answer may be yes… Or at the very least, just a few steps away.

    The duo, who successfully launched craft beer bar East Harlem Bottling Co. four years ago, are sending thunderclaps across El Barrio with their new team and latest concept one block down Lexington Avenue, Perch— an intimate, by-design, full-liquor cocktail bar with specialty drinks, satisfyingly-sized small plates, and an unmatched, welcoming ambiance in our ever-changing neighborhood.

    As the kids say, this beautifully designed space “is a vibe”— seating 25 comfortably at its solid oak bar, classically reminiscent of old New York with its arched wooden ceilings and backlit mirrors. Illuminating swoon-worthy wallpaper filled with evergreens and mauves, the lighting sets the mood, along with the well-curated accents of industrial, earthy, and modern art deco details in just the right places. The atmosphere is upscale without being uptight, with much of the credit due to the warm and friendly team behind the bar.

    With more than 120 bottles at his disposal, Brooklyn native and beverage brainchild, Rob Giles, has brought his talents to Manhattan and created a cocktail jungle where dreams are made of— there’s nothing he can’t do. Imagination meets sophistication on the craft list with shaken blends like the Nutty Belle and City Sunsets, and the rotating Farmer’s Market sparks a curiosity and desire for what he might dream up next. Inspired by the history of cocktails and determined to storytell through his drinks, Rob’s love and spirit for spirits is crystal clear— even through his take on the standard classics. The hints of lemongrass in the Moscow Mule give it a flair that is anything but basic, and Rob’s ability to weave complex, refined flavors into universal formulas that appeal to every palette makes him the ideal mixologist... and one to watch.

    This delicious assortment of cocktails can only be matched by Chef Raj Abat’s diverse and delectable menu, where culinary classics are met with unexpected twists and joined by adventurous, yet brilliantly balanced plates. Chef Raj, whose resume boasts the first vegan Filipino restaurant in NYC, brings a commitment and passion for fresh ingredients that shines through his dishes. Chef’s take on the traditional Cacio e Pepe pleasantly surprises using mochi, a Japanese rice cake dough, for its pecorino-covered noodles, and the squid ink gnocco served with honey butter and country ham is unlike anything you’ve ever tasted. The oysters are fresh and well-priced, the porgy is filling, perfectly fried, and topped with a flavorful sauce where chimichurri meets salsa verde. My personal favorites: The hamachi crudo is the star of the seafood show— a beautifully plated fusion of ceviche and sunomono flavors complete with added greens, as well as the short rib, served with fresh bread, marmalade, and marrow. It’s bone-sucking, finger-licking good, but luckily comes with a mini spoon to scoop up every last bite. Make sure to save room for dessert— the lemon curd paired with cherries and butter cookie crumbs strikes the perfect chord of sweet, sour, and salty notes.

    Perch is a win for East Harlem residents craving unique cocktails and eats in a beautiful place where everybody knows your name— so if it’s possible for lightning to strike twice, it certainly has.

    A comfy oasis in East Harlem; a cute hideaway from your typical hustle and bustle of New York City; a place to call home after a long day.

    Perch is an up-and-coming cocktail bar with deliciously crafted mixed drinks that will soothe your soul and leave your palate refreshed.

    It’s so evident the love, care, and thought that has been put into this amazing place. Come, stay awhile, and let your cares fall to the side while you *perch* yourself at the bar and experience this incredible journey.

    The food is delicious, the cocktails are exquisite, the atmosphere is delightful. A perfect 10/10, 5 stars, and 2 thumbs up establishment! 💚
