If you have read my last post you know all about the missed Bristol trip, and had I gone, I would have had a chance to give you a first-hand review of Persimmon on State Street. In the event of my not having been there, you have to take the word of the James Beard Foundation (Chef Champe Speidel is a four-time semifinalist), the New York Times, Yankee Magazine, the Washington Post, and a host of other publications.
As a rule, you won’t see me recommending restaurants I haven’t been to. But in this case I will have to make an exception, just so you can sneak in a peek if you are in the neighborhood. And yes, so will I.
