Per Se

Thomas Keller doubles down with a Grand Award on each coast
Aug 31, 2013

2013 Wine Spectator Grand Award winner Per Se, which opened in 2004, overlooks Columbus Circle at the intersection of Central Park South and Broadway, where sparkling skyline meets cherry blossoms each spring. At the restaurant's 16 tables, arranged in an amphitheater fashion, guests sit down to enjoy one of the best views in the city and an equally impressive nine-course tasting menu, prepared daily by chef de cuisine Eli Kaimeh. Nathan Wesley reports on Thomas Keller's New York-based sister restaurant to California's acclaimed French Laundry for Wine Spectator's Restaurant Wine List Awards.
