Just wanted to clear something up that had been confusing us. Was at Per Se over the weekend for lunch and had the 9 course tasting menu. Ate at our usual leisurely pace and was out in under 2 and a half hours. According to our (great) waiter, that's more the norm, not the 4 to 4 and an half hours that had been noted earlier. Those of you with expensive babysitters, relax!!
