Restaurant Review: Perricone’s Marketplace & Cafe

10PM — Where to eat?

He had heard good things about Perricone. I could only think of the skin care line of the same name.

There was no wait for a table & the kitchen doesn’t close until 11, so we decided to give it a try.

The staff began our dinner with some HOT bread & tasty tomato cubes. SO GOOD! I dare say some of the best carbs I’ve ever eaten. Totally worth breaking your Dr. Atkins diet!!

He ordered a hearty meat lasagne while I opted for the seafood linguine. Both were good.

Service was adequate, if slow at times & requiring a little more effort to catch eye contact.

We were seated in the fountain room — Decorated in a rustic garden style? Dark – Don’t try to read in here. & if you’re on a date, ask to be seated in the dining room closest to the marketplace — It’s a little more formal & quiet… Unless you think a live keyboard player on an elevated stage really enhances the mood.

In short: Come here for the food.

The dessert menu offers 14 choices which includes chocolate sushi — Pistachios wrapped in coconut wrapped in chocolate. Add “homemade” (Their quotation marks, not mine) gelato or sorbet to any dessert for $2.95 extra.

Validated & valet parking available.
