My fiance and I have dinner reservations at Per Se in May in order to celebrate a special occasion. I'm VERY excited about trying the tasting menu at Per Se... but I wonder if I will enjoy it as much as I hope to?
A bit about me: I love fine dining and have been to several fine dining restaurants in NYC. My favorites so far are Jean-Georges and La Grenouille, and I've been a repeat customer to both. I love the amazing quality of food + French recipes, impeccable service, and the tasty amuse-bouches. I'm also glad these 2 restaurants provide enough quantity to keep my 6'4 tall fiance full!
On the other hand, I'm not a huge fan of Le Bernardin, Gilt, or Daniel. I didn't think the food was all that memorable, and Gilt had the tiniest portions I've ever seen. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I made the trip to those restaurants, but once was enough to satisfy my curiosity. :)
Based on the above, do you think Per Se will be worth it for me and my fiance? I'm hoping the food quality and quantity will match my experiences at JG and LG. :)
