The Pierre Welcomes French-American Restaurant

Settled on Central Park and nestled in New York, The Pierre, A Taj Hotel, greets their new restaurant, Perrine, the female version of the name Pierre. The restaurant is guided by Executive Chef Ashfer Biju, who serves cuisine influenced by the season, while concentrating on unique flavors that spotlights the ingredients’ quality.

Perrine will host a French-American menu featuring polished and simple plates from local seafood and vegetables. The restaurant will also offer daily specials on the menu from classic Pierre dishes, serving breakfast, weekend brunch, lunch, and dinner.

“At Perrine, we built a menu based on iconic New York City and French classics, along with popular dishes representative of The Pierre,” says Biju. “We did extensive research of old menus and recipes from The Pierre’s rich culinary past, and then simplified them, giving the menu a modern twist appealing to the way people dine today.”


Executive Pastry Chef Michael Mignano’s will create familiar homemade desserts. Local cheeses will also be available for those who don’t have a sweet tooth.

The hotel will boast an open window setting for Perrine, offering plenty of sunlight as well as space, holding 80 seats. Perrine’s design maintains Pierre’s neutral color theme, with colorful accents sprinkled throughout the restaurant and channeling the vintage and polished Pierre. In addition, Perrine will also welcome guests via outdoor seating, just a few footsteps away from Central Park.

Perrine’s bar, which seats 20, offers spirits and homemade seasonal drinks crafted by Allen Katz of New York Distilling Company.
