Chef Issac Perlman — also known as Chef IP — has spent the past decade cooking out of high-end homes in Miami, garnering quite the local following. Now, he’s brought his food to the masses in a new location in North Miami Beach at his new restaurant Perl by Chef IP (2420 Northeast Miami Gardens Drive).
Perl blends Japanese and Mediterranean cuisine offering a mix of appetizers, crudos, and entrees. Think items like citrus cured grouper carpaccio made with sancho pepper, lime, and micro cilantro; baby gem Caesar salad topped with wasabi-truffle dressing, parmesan, candied pecans, and togarashi; crispy maitake mushroom with charred leek remoulade, black garlic, and yuzu vinaigrette; and Alaskan halibut with saffron-yuzu beurre blanc.
The 2,000-square-foot space, which debuted in December 2020, was designed by architect Ari Skral and interior design team Urban Robot. The restaurant boasts high ceilings, asymmetrical woodwork, and modern, sleek, industrial finishes. Outside there’s an expansive outdoor patio that wraps around the restaurant offering indoor and outdoor seating, along with a 5,000-square foot rooftop.
Perl is now open Monday to Wednesday 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and 5:30 to 9:30 p.m., Thursday to Saturday 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and 5:30 to 10:30 p.m., and Sundays from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. To book a reservation call 786-654-2854 or visit here.
