I recently went to Per Se for the first time in my life. I was absolutely blown away by the service, and the food was delicious and beautifully presented. They even altered the menu for my personal preferences. However, as much as I loved it, I had been to Cafe Mogador in the city that morning... and during my extraordinary meal at Per Se, I found myself yearning for my spicy middle eastern eggs with harissa. I didn't ask for pepper because I thought it would ruin the delicate flavors of the meal. I guess at the end of the day I just like spicy food:} I just feel bad because that was a freakishly pricey meal! (I did sincerely enjoy it though- I just would'nt have minded a bit more zip:} )
