On Monday, the wife took me to Perrys in Adams Morgan to celebrate my half-birthday. Yes, neither Perrys nor Adams Morgan has an apostrophe, according to the web site.
Half-birthdays are a wonderful tradition that my mom did for us. We got a little present and maybe a cupcake. We being my brother and sister and I. Anyway, because the wife is so great, she has continued this tradition for me. In addition to dinner, she got me a t-shirt from Design by Humans and some bamboo boxer shorts from Shirts of Bamboo.
Anyway, Perrys. We ate on the open-air roof overlooking the top of 18th Street. It was great. The weather was perfect for it. And the food was great. We started with some edamame, which had too much salt on it, but was otherwise good, and a bottle of French grenache-syrah, which was also good. It was a screw cap bottle, which I’ve almost never seen outside of New Zealand wine. But the screw caps are getting more popular, and I’ve heard from at least two people who should know that even a lot of wine snobs are okay with the screw caps.
Then we had assorted sushi, which was quite good. The spicy tuna roll was great, and the fatty tuna nigiri just falls apart in your mouth.
Overall, it was a great restaurant experience, and I would definitely recommend it.
