Perch perches delicately at the intersection of Park Slope’s Mommy-&-Me and Mondavi-loving worlds. By day, it’s a kid-friendly order-at-the-bar coffeehouse, breakfast café and soup-and-sandwich luncheonette. By night, it’s a lively bar and unfettered sit-down restaurant with live music. Any time of day, Perch is filled with young creative professionals and moms with a tot or two in tow. Husband-and-wife team Deidre Jones and Bruce Bjork have cleverly featured their high-concept graphic identity—a white silhouetted bird on a deep red background—on T-shirts and mugs, and on magnetic plastic birds that decorate the far wall in the back, where kids tumble around on sofas. The space’s Scandinavian-modern design—pale wood and bamboolike reeds, red-and-white color scheme—is unpretentious and cheerful. So is the food: granola and yogurt, waffles, market-fresh salads, savory sandwiches. The menu emphasizes freshness, flavor, fun, and creativity, with breakfast and lunch offerings outshining the New American and Asian-influenced dinner entrées. Whatever you order, details count: Red onion and scallions add depth to a creamy macaroni and cheese, wasabi adds punch to a tuna-salad sandwich, and a peach melba features grilled instead of poached fruit.
