Sorry for my late reply. Per Se is an unforgettable experience and is well worth saving up for. The things they do with vegetables are incredible!

You’re right that you do sometimes find reservations available on opentable.com, but I still might try to call for a reservation if I were you, since they only put spots on OpenTable for the immediate week when they weren’t filled over the phone. If I was coming all of the way from Germany, I’d want to have my spot secured ahead of time.

Your calculation looks good to me. $310 includes the tip, but expect about 9% tax on top of that. $200-$250 is appropriate for the pairings. I don’t think I’ve ever paid in cash, but I’m 99% sure they’d accept it. You could always call or email them to be sure.

I’d love to know what you think of your meal!

Comment on The Vegetarian Tasting and Chef’s Tasting at Per Se by Benjamin http://www.donuts4dinner.com/2012/05/24/the-vegetarian-tasting-and-chefs-tasting-at-per-se/comment-page-1/#comment-371654 Tue, 24 Jun 2014 13:04:20 +0000 http://www.donuts4dinner.com/?p=3870#comment-371654 Dear famous New York food connoisseur,

I stumbled across your wonderful doughnuts4dinner page, as I was looking for a perfect restaurant in New York City. The pictures are gorgeous and the congenial way you write about your personal experience with food is very inspiring! Thank you so much!
Your reviews have already helped me a lot with finding the probably best restaurant in the city.

I live in Germany but I will be in New York for vacation with my best friend at the end of September.

One of my dreams is to have a perfect food or taste experience in one of New Yorks best restaurants, although I’m an absolute amateur and have never in my life had a more than three course menu! X)

After browsing your page for several hours each day now, I’ve somehow fallen in love with ’Per Se’.
Apparently it’s possible to get a table online on opentable.com, when you’re not having a certain date in mind of course and choose the lunch on a weekday.

It seems to be the ultimate taste experience! And I think of it as the upper limit of a taste barometer -something I can compare things to in the future when it comes to flavor experiences.
On account of this only, I could bear the high price! I will have to save some more money for this though X)

I’ve thought about the costs, but was wondering if you could maybe help by telling me if my calculation is reasonable (I hope you don’t find this a little bit embarrassing).

The tasting of vegetables is 310$, the wine pairing seems to be up from 150$ to 250$ right?
As you did, we plan to ask for only 7 glasses and one cocktail, one beverage with each course.
So in the end this means 560$ per person?

Do I have to expect a tax on the end price on top of it?
And is it possible to pay with cash money at Per Se, or are as with the online reservation, only credit cards accepted?

I’m sorry for all the awkward questions, my not very good english, and I’m sorry for posting this on the site, I didn’t know where else I could do it X)

Thank you very much!

Greetings,
Benjamin

I want to try Atlantic oysters! I’ve only ever had sweet, fat Gulf oysters…OK, I need to stop talking about it. Now I’m craving oysters. Anyway, Blake had Atlantic oysters when he was in Atlantic City this spring, and he said they’re totally different than what we’re accustomed to.

I wanted to buy a pound of smoked meat, but it was $36+tax per pound! Couldn’t get myself to pull the trigger. I wonder how much meat is on a sandwich and what the difference is in pricing between Manhattan and Brooklyn.
