Per Se, the much-anticipated restaurant from renowned chef Thomas Keller, debuted in February 2004 in the Time Warner Center complex at Columbus Circle. With striking views of Columbus Circle and Central Park, the dining room is a rare blend of open space and easy intimacy, discreet drama and understated luxury. Offering a 64-seat dining room, a 10-seat private dining room, a lounge, a bar and wine cellar, all presented in a palette of warm neutrals and natural elements, Per Se will refine and redefine the dining experience. For dinner, Per Se offers two prix fixe tasting menus for $295; a 9 course Tasting of Seasonal Vegetables or the 9 course Chef's Tasting Menu, which changes daily. We also offer a five, seven and nine-course menu during lunch on Friday, Saturday and Sunday for $185, $235 and $295 respectively.
Our table ate the 9 course chef's tasting menu. Food was of good quality. Service was excellent. Restaurant design was cold and detached. Perhaps my expectations were too high but I was expecting to be blown away and I wasn't.
This is what new French food supposed to be. They use alot ingredients that you don't normally see in the French restaurants in France. They are also lighter than most traditional FR. (Traditional FR are usually too heavy for my taste.) Every course was delicately done and I enjoy everyone of them. It would be hard to go to other French restaurants after you have tried Per se. The service was good but they told us to go around for the bathroom because Robert DeNiro was there that night [sigh...]
There is something to be said about a $225 meal that mostly consists of rolls. We had the tasting menu. you literally have maybe one tablespoon of food per course. Ironically - the rolls that they pass out between each course were bigger than the actual meal course. The food was good, but the portions were entirely too small to really enjoy. for $225 per person just for food... i expect to be blown away. Unless you're on a corporate tab, please spend your money elsewhere. I was really really disappointed. REALLLY disappointed. There are so many other BETTER places to dine... and to get an actual meal.
Absoulutely amazing cuisine coupled with graceful choreagraphed moves from the staff serving incredibly rich flavors in one of New York's prime views of Columbus Circle and Central Park, creating a dining experience unlike any other. That sums up my experience per se, of Per Se.
Worth every dollar, if you can get a reservation. I went with a party of six, and we were seated in the private room. Probably another reason why the experience was enhanced. No need for stuffiness or snobbery. Just friends enjoying themselves behind a velvet curtain, sharing a delectable experience.
