One of many Jean-Georges Vongerichten restaurants in the city, Perry Street may be the best;an austere temple of haute cuisine that dispenses with fussy squiggles of color and useless extra ingredients. The wonderful lunch special includes any two dishes from a menu that doesn't distinguish between apps and entrees, and a bonus dessert from a commendably short list. We loved the braised chicken slicked with lemon-pepper sauce, hulking Gulf shrimp in lemongrass broth with ramen noodles, and (dinner only) black sea bass in truffled potato broth.
