Per Se Kitchen Tour

There are 25,000 restaurants in New York, there are about 100 I should eat at. One of those restaurants is Thomas Keller's Per Se. I didn't get a chance to eat there this time but the staff was kind enough to give me a kitchen tour. I've eaten at Keller's restaurants, Bouchon in Las Vegas, Bouchon Bakery in New York and Ad Hoc in Yountville California. Memo to self - eat at Per Se and the French Laundry soon

As would be expected, the kitchen was impeccable. Plenty of working space by New York standards with a center cooking island plus an enormous staging area.


Kitchen shots

This was interesting. It's a setup of all the chocolates they'll be serving for the night with descriptions next to each one so the staff can memorize them.

A view of NYC from outside the front of the restaurant which is located in the Columbus Circle area. One floor down from Per Se is the Bouchon Bakery.
