PERA Mediterranean Brasserie

PERA Mediterranean Brasserie • As you all already know I am a foody person and I love my food. Today I joined my friend and colleague Abbie (from Abigail&Michaels Concierge Services New York), and following her expert advise we shared a fabulous lunch at PERA Mediterranean Brasserie. Zagat Rated Restaurant 2010.
Very busy spot for lunch being that it is located right on Madison Avenue between 41st. and 42nd. Great crowd and ambience. You may choose to seat in the bar area for a more casual and quick lunch or at the tables close and next to the open kitchen. Open kitchen restaurants are my favorite.
Great Turkish bread and Hummus and shredded Goat Cheese . To start along with Classic White Wine Spritzers.

Starters: Turkish Smoked Lamb Tacos (USD 11) and FRESH GARDEN PEA SALAD candied pistachio, pea tendril, feta honey mustard (USD 13)

Main Course for me… since I am on a diet ha ha ha was, THE LUNCH SALAD chopped mixed vegetables, tulum cheese, walnuts, citrus vinaigrette (USD 15).
