MORE THAN JUST A PLACE to drink and dine, City Perch is for hanging out. Together with the iPic movie theater (next door—where else?), this new Dobbs Ferry restaurant caters to groups on a night out. Make yourself comfortable with extensive seating, TVs tuned to the games, or upscale bar games like brushed-steel foosball. A live DJ spins beats to keep the energy hopping on Friday and Saturday nights starting at 9 pm.
Known for its mixology expertise, City Perch’s cocktail menu is extensive and exciting. Nothing is held back, from the mojito with passion fruit, coconut, ginger and pineapple, to the grasshopper steaming with liquid nitrogen. At daily dinner and weekend brunches, diners dive into comfort favorites. The menu is distinctively Southern, including corn bread, ribs, and crab cakes. Everything is upleveled from the classic, like lobster on a Cobb salad, and maple-bourbon-pecan butter for your biscuits, and you can add truffles or caviar to any dish. And save room for dessert—Executive Chef Sherry Yard was Wolfgang Puck’s pastry chef for 20 years and has three James Beard Awards for Outstanding Pastry Chef of the Year. She doesn’t shy from decadence. Try the deep, dark chocolate doughnut with pistachio ice cream, dark chocolate sauce, and pistachio tuile if you want proof. With two other locations (Maryland and New Jersey), the iPic team seems to be developing a formula for customer satisfaction: good drinks, upscale menu, and room for fun.
