Per Se dinner in November for birthday

cmm3 | Jul 29, 2007 12:57 AM

Would like to take my girlfriend, I think, to Per Se. Is wine shoved down your throat there, or can you simply decline wine and stick with sparkling water? I am sure if we said we were under 21 (do they even check ID?), they'd comply, no? I don't want to start a ruckus, but neither of us simply love wine. And it's not going to change by going to Per Se - we've lived in Provence for some time and our feelings are the same.

Also, I'm allergic to all seafood. Will they take that into account and substitute dishes? I'm also very picky - most vegetables I don't like. Yeah, yeah, I know: horrible, but these things won't change by a visit to Per Se.

I really want to take her to the best, we're flying back from West Palm on the 26th and then I want a reservation for the next day (November). Are reservations really as hard as they say? I read Bruino's review; he had to try for a week and my date is not flexible! Any ideas on getting a table? I know she'll love it there and the money isn't an issue.
