FeaturesFine Dining,Notable Chef,Special Occasion Spot
Per Se is known as the epitome of fine dining in New York City, and with good reason: Chef Thomas Keller sources all his ingredients for the restaurant from Satur Farms, a family-owned organic farm 100 miles east of Manhattan. The farm's owner once served as chef de cuisine of venerable Le Bernardin and Lutece, and the quality of ingredients used at Per Se is unparalelled. Keller's flavors shine in signature dishes like "Oysters and Pearls," a "sabayon" of pearl tapioca with Island Creek oysters and caviar, served as part of the nine-course chef's tasting menu. Per Se also offers a nine-course vegetable tasting menu. Both tasting menus offer small plates, designed to wow diners and leave them wanting more. Beyond sheer quality, Per Se rounds out the dining experience with innovative preparations, an elegant space and well-informed, attentive service.
