    Did you call or just use opentable for Perilla? We've noticed that sometimes there is better availability when we've called the restaurant.

          If you are looking for cozy, quirky and not extortionate, why not try Little Giant on Orchard?

          If you can go about 10 to 15 dollars higher per person, try Dovetail. It is in many ways similar to Perilla, but the food is actually far superior and well worth the difference.
