Our food menu changes frequently to incorporate the best available local ingredients and the creativity of our staff and other local artisans. We pride ourselves on sourcing all of the components for our daily menu directly from local producers using organic practices (certified or not certified), and embrace the challenge of working with common and uncommon ingredients. In the tradition of the tavernas, tapas bars, farmhouses, and street corners we take inspiration from, we strive to keep our food affordable, while maintaining an uncompromising approach to quality. Count on us to give you a taste of place at any given time.
A few generations after being subdued by Prohibition, cider is re-emerging as the characteristic drink of the northeastern US, thanks to a landscape still dotted with abandoned and wild trees and a new wave of cidermakers inspired by them. At Perennial, we prioritize ciders made using traditional techniques and heirloom varieties, as well as those featuring wild apples and “new” varieties propagated from local seedling trees. We are excited to offer cider in a variety of formats including draughts, glass pours, whole bottles, and flights. Most of our ciders are dry or off-dry, though we also feature a few well done semi-sweet options. More than anything, our cider menu is meant to be a place to find what you love, even if you don’t know what you like yet. Our staff is here to help! If you already love cider, we look forward to sharing the most interesting, complex ciders our region has to offer and hearing what you think. From here forward, cider is a conversation and we want to have it with you.
Our menu is always a work in progress that responds to the season, the moment, and sometimes to less inspiring things like market availability. As such, our food menu often swaps a new dish or two each week, while maintaining certain fixtures and the same overall format. Our cider program is more stable, in hopes you’ll find and frequent your favorites, but often sees small changes a couple times per month to accommodate exciting new offerings we think you’d like to try. The menu below is a recent sample that captures a typical day at Perennial, but don’t be surprised if the day you come looks slightly different. We don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
