Yerba Buena Perry

Chef Partner Julian Medina and restaurant group YB & Co introduce Christopher Gilman and their newest Latin hot spot, Yerba Buena Perry. Located at One Perry Street in Manhattan's West Village. Yerba Buena Perry is a chic 55-seater that stirs up an era gone by-1950's Cuba. The restaurant features Julian Medina's reinterpreted Cocina Latina cuisine complemented by signature cocktails, many made with Yerba Buena, a latin mint.

Yerba Buena Perry transports guests from the West Village to an exclusive club in Havana with a feel that is retro yet chic and sophisticated. Designer Welly Lai outfitted the space with floral wall coverings in sea foam hues and leather banquettes, setting a mood of elegance. The restaurant's focal point is an expansive hand-carved bar with an Italian marble top.


Julian Medina's cusine evokes Peru, Cuba, Argentina, Colombia, México and Spain. Yerba Buena Perry's menu includes Ceviches, Tacos, and Parrillada, an Argentine mixed Grill.

Yerba Buena is FUN. Very high energy brunch due to their killer boozy brunch special. I was hesitant about the food because places with that boozy brunch crowd are typically after watered-down drinks and flavorless food but the food was amazing. We split the Dan Dulce french toast and the Cachapa Benedict - yum. The benedict was with sweet corn cake - the stuff that arepas are made out of and it had this amazing hollandaise sauce that must be their own recipe because it was baller. Also split the brussel sprouts - because you know, healthy- and they were very tasty. Very reasonably priced too!

Yerba Buena is a classy American twist on Latin food. From ceviche and guacamole to arroz con pollo and paella, the food is worth splurging and trying all different dishes. My recommendations include the chicarron de calamar (blue corn mean crusted calamari), the empanadas, and the paella. You'll save some money if you go during happy hour, when drinks are half off - who doesn't love a great happy hour deal like that? You'll even find some unique cocktails including one with egg whites. You can't go wrong with any drink, but for those who love spice, try The Royal Passion or The Sun-dia.
