I am still mentally digesting our meal from Per Se. Check back soon for a post about the menus and our meal. As a quick update, I did want to share a few photos from our behind the scenes tour of the kitchen.
The rumors of the video link between the French Laundry and Per Se are true, but what impressed me were the custom inlay tiles with "Sense of Urgency" blazed in blue. That phrase is the montra for the entire staff - it means much more than simply working quickly. Sense of urgency is a reminder of how important every detail is in making a meal at Per Se one of the best dining experences in the world.
