When Harold Dieterle created spicy duck meatballs for Top Chef, he admittedly got “sort of spanked.” Still, he dominated Season 1 and won the inaugural grand prize. And those same meatballs have become the most oft-demanded signature dish at his restaurant, Perilla. The cozy 18-table restaurant features Dieterle’s seasonal New American food, influenced by his Italian-American roots and time spent abroad in Thailand, Spain, and Mexico.

Don’t Miss: Dieterle is testing new waters, opening a contemporary Thai spot—Kin Shop—nearby this fall.
