After eating lunch at Per Se, it’s definitely become one of my favorite restaurants. I would have to say that Joel Robuchon in Las Vegas and Per Se are now my top 2. Hopefully I’ll be back to enjoy their food again. And I have to say that the Perfect Manhattan that I had there was the best one I have ever had in my life. I don’t remember the name of each dish because I was busy just enjoying the food and atmosphere, so excuse me when I can’t remember all the details. Also, except for the Oysters and Pearls dish, none of the pictures have been Photoshopped. It was just too many pictures for me to work on right now.
Oozing with gruyere, this was such a great start to our meal. I could have eaten a whole bowl of them.
Salmon cornet. Beautiful presentation and filled with creme fraiche in the cone.
Butternut squash with hazelnut custard. My husband’s favorite of the entire meal and he doesn’t even like butternut squash.
Oysters and pearls. I was quiet the entire time that I ate this because I was too busy eating mine and Patrick’s.
Truffle custard goodness that I got to scoop out with a crisp. I also ate mine and Patrick’s.
I cannot express to you how much I fell in love with these parker rolls.
Luscious butters. We couldn’t stop eating the one from Vermont on the right.
Palm of hearts salad. I could have done without this, but it does look brilliant. My favorite part was the grapefruit.
Bread basket trip #1.
Bread basket #2. That pretzel roll was fantastic. I ate the entire thing. It didn’t even need butter.
Mmm, scallops. So fresh and easy to slice through.
Tender short ribs with basil. The texture reminded me of pastrami.
Play on a French 75 with granita. Fitting since I had just ordered a French 75 to drink.
Creme brulee ice cream. It all went in my belly.
Chocolate shell filled with what I *think* was two kinds of mousse.
Dates from California.
Coffee and doughnuts with a selection of bon bons. The coffee was a creamy frozen concoction that was hard to stop eating.
Sandwich cookies that we got to take home.
Chocolate covered hazelnuts that they brought over on our way out.
