The Perch in Green Hills: This Week's Dining Review

Posted By on Thu, Dec 13, 2012 at 1:50 PM

In this week's Dining column in the Nashville Scene, Nicki Pendleton Wood checks out the new Green Hills outpost of The Perch, the popular crêperie and coffeehouse in Brentwood.

Wood says:

The new Perch location aims for the same intimate feel as the dollhouse-sized original Perch in Brentwood. The pleasantly neutral naturals and higher ceiling make it feel larger and roomier but — hard to believe — it has the same amount of seating as the Brentwood Perch, around 80 seats.

She likes the ambience. How about the menu:

The menu is nearly identical to Brentwood's: crêpes, crêpes and crêpes — plus scrambles, omelets, Belgian waffles, a couple of salads and a few happy additions.

Every crêpe has something to recommend it, and there are enough that it'll take quite a few visits to work your way through all the appealing flavors assembled by chef Jack Pritchard, formerly head chef at Wild Iris.

Take the pear, blue cheese, walnut and arugula: The combination that has been the highlight of dinner parties and potlucks for a decade is rolled into a springy crêpe that transforms it into a meal. Or try the spinach, havarti and artichoke, which deconstructs everyone's favorite hot dip and bundles it inside a perfectly folded triangle of satiny pastry.

A lot of folks seem to love the stuffing out of the new crêperie. Check out the review here, and if you've been to The Perch, feel free to share in the comments.
