We will be bringing to Salt something we had started at bula, and something Laurie and I feet strongly about....Project "Welcome Home".
We are offering a night out on us to anyone returning from being deployed overseas fighting for our country. If there is anyone who deserves a nice meal, a hand-shake, a BIG THANK YOU, and a night out with his/her loved one its these guys/gals. We offer complimentary dinner for two, and it's our way of saying Thank You.
We will be working with local police dept's and VFW halls, and just ask any of YOU, if you are, or know of anyone returning home from service to contact us or just stop in. This is in no-way a "Hand-Out"...this is a "Thank You".
So as we are enjoying our summer here in beautiful Sussex County and enjoying spending time with OUR family and friends, let's just all remember these Men and Women who are overseas putting there asses on the line for us day-to-day.
"Erion is very stupid & not as smart as Zach.
Zach is a better human being & Erion will burn in Hell."
Hmmm, I am not sure how to respond to this except to say, I think I disagree with you Zach. I think Erion is a fine human being.
(This is a true story, and the names have not been changed to protect anyone.)
Excellent...as usual. On what would be I think our 4th of 5th time at Perilla it is always just a perfect night. Starting with the company we had of course, to the food, to the service, to the last cup of coffee...We have yet to be even slightly disappointed. I will only speak for my meal which was started with
"Raw Kona Kampachi" The freshest of tuna with yellow garlic chives, toasted rice pearls, and smoked ponzu...top rate.
"Romesco Oil Poached Halibut" with black olive gnocchi, oyster mushrooms, & young garlic sauce. Perfectly cooked, gnocchi was a bit dense but awesome.
a side of "Faro Risotto"....again, just awesome...with artichoke confit, Parmesan, & Chili-grape salad
"Red Velvet Cake"..I actually have to say this was the only slight let down, though there was nothing wrong with it, and it was actually REALLY good, it wasn't "Red Velvet Cake". It was very thin layers of cake with a super-dense cream cheese in between..like I said, it was awesome but not what I had expected...more of a cheesecake than anything else.
and being the coffee "junkie" that I am, I have to say the coffee was one of the best cups I have had in quite a while...I don't know what beans they use, but it was the perfect black coffee. And there is no better way to end an evening than with a perfect cup of coffee.
All in All..excellent....
If you ever get a chance I highly recommend this place! 9 Jones Street

This week we bring out...
Lancaster Brewing's "Milk Stout"..A traditional English style sweet stout. A bold, dark ale, bursting with roasted barley dryness and mellowed by hints of chocolate and coffee.
River Horse Brewing "Tripel Horse"...A unique nose with a hint of vanilla esters, which comes from the Belgian ale yeast. Tripel Horse has a big body and rich mouth feel and finishes mostly dry with a touch of sweetness. If you shy from some of the sweeter Belgian ales, we think you will enjoy this one. This is a small batch release.
A new one added to our Beer List this week...
Abita Turbodog is a dark brown ale brewed with Willamette hops and a combination of British pale, crystal and chocolate malts.
This combination gives Turbodog its rich body and color and a sweet chocolate-toffee like flavor. Turbodog began as a specialty ale but has gained a huge loyal following and has become one of our three flagship brews.
Just a bit stronger than our other brews, so . . .beware of the dog!
