As the most exclusive (and expensive) table in New York, chef Thomas Keller’s Per Se is haute cuisine dining at its best. With only 16 tables and a spectacular view overlooking Central Park, the 3 Michelin-star cuisine nonetheless manages to captivate 100% of one’s attention with two unique 9-course tasting menus that are created each day according to the chef’s inspiration. Expect refined, inventive and seasonally-inspired flavours, such as a sabayon of pearl tapioca with Island Creek oysters and sterling white sturgeon caviar; a gateau of Hudson Valley Moulard duck foie gras; or the heavenly crispy skin fillet of black bass with glazed tokyo turnips, red watercress and Meyer lemon. Each exquisite course is intricately crafted, sophisticated and intensely flavoured with only the finest ingredients, many of which are grown to the chef’s exacting specifications. The service team are highly attentive and knowledgeable, and the wine list is one of New York's most impressive. Try booking a table around dusk to experience one of the most magical sunset views in Manhattan. Advance bookings essential.
