As our loyal readers know, we don't review a restaurant unless we've been there three times but since Per Se is such an extraordinary experience and almost impossible to get into, we’re writing about it on one visit.


Bravo Thomas Keller! Per Se stands amongst the top five meals Michael has experienced in his lifetime including his tours of Bordeaux and Paris. The service headed by Jonathan Gilbert at our table cannot be compared to any other New York dining experience. The attention to each detail, the timing and, most of all, the sampling of nine courses, each one an unforgettable experience on it's own, proved exemplary and shouldn’t be missed in this lifetime.

Of particular note, the "Oysters and Pearls" (see below) consisted of a sabayon (beaten egg and wine) with fresh oysters and white sturgeon caviar and the parsnip-vanilla soup which served as an amuse bouch and a perfect beginning. Run don't walk (but call two months in advance) and sell whatever stocks you have left; $1100 for lunch for two with wine pairings. Don’t worry, tip was included.
