Matt & Stacey Perrin (then Stacey Kersten) met while working at a restaurant over 10 years ago. Matt worked in the kitchen as a chef and Stacey worked as a waitress and bar tender. They were friends for years before they started dating. Once they started dating, they proved to be a reckoning force. Matt quickly became kitchen manager and Stacey quickly became a manager for the dining room.
While working in the restaurant, Matt & Stacey became engaged and were married in 2012. They continued working for the restaurant until April 2013. During that time, Matt & Stacey saw things were not being done in favor of the guests that frequented the restaurant. This did not sit well with the pair as they saw many of these guests as friends. They knew something needed to be done. They stopped working for the previous owners and sought out their own restaurant.
In October 2013, after months of work, Perrin’s Restaurant was finally opened. The couple happily welcomed new and familiar faces with open arms and a no-nonsense menu. They worked hard to give the neighborhood the restaurant they deserved. The neighborhood was happy to finally have a “home” again. Matt & Stacey promised to put the quality of food and the guests at utmost importance. All of our food is prepared fresh daily with fresh, local ingredients. Matt and Stacey vow to never compromise the quality of their food or the comfort of their guests.
In April 2014, the couple’s first child, Riley, was born. Matt has a daughter, Tristan, from a previous relationship. Now, the family of four are expecting a new addition in February of 2017. Matt & Stacey have shared their lives, good food, and hospitality with the people of Harahan for over ten years and hope to stay for many years in the future. They hope to have their children work with them to oversee the restaurant for many years to come.
