Like the better-known Standard (see below), Perch is an elevated resting place, but it delivers a classier atmosphere in a French-inspired rooftop bistro overlooking Pershing Square. Panoramic views of the Downtown skyline make the frequent lines and pricey dining and cocktails worth it (beer is affordable, though). Two outdoor fireplaces, fire pits, and choice of indoor or outdoor seating make this a good choice to indulge in a comfortable, upscale atmosphere with friends or a date.
