Best for Gourmets - Expert review of Per Se

Celebrity Napa Valley chef Thomas Keller has brought his gourmet touch to NYC.

The French Laundry in Yountville, California, is arguably the best restaurant in the United States. Now the owners have brought a destination property to the East Coast.

Food and drink: 

The food and drink is incredibly inventive, with a tasting menu of small plates that can take the whole afternoon or evening to savor and dishes that use the best American ingredients like scallops, oysters and farm-raised beef. Make sure to save room for the dessert and amazing homemade chocolate truffles.

Ambience: 

The elegant dining room is a bit staid but the views over Central Park are glorious.

Service: 

The service is attentive and friendly, although I found that the staff hover a tad too much.

Location: 

Housed in the Time Warner complex at Columbus Circle where many of the city’s gourmet restaurants have debuted.

Price advice: 

Staggeringly expensive—the nine-course tasting menu starts at US$275—you’ll want to save this for an occasion or for impressing clients.

Tables to book: 

If you are in a bigger party ask for the private dining room. Otherwise try to book a table close to the windows facing Central Park.
