memorable meals: dinner or rent?

That’s a rhetorical headline, of course.

Yet on occasion you need to thank someone for the multitude of things they do for you without question or hesitation – or expecting anything in return.  Which is how I found myself wining and dining a foodie friend at Thomas Keller’s Per Se last month.

To get to the point:  yes, it does live up to all the hype.  And even though our meal cost a bit more than what I payout in rent each month, the memory of our shared surprise and delight over each passing course will linger.  Plus, the butter-poached, truffle-laced afterglow doesn’t suck either.

For those who enjoy their food porn, I’ve scanned and posted a copy of the menu with wines below.  Should you find yourself not needing to shell out for rent one month, I heartily recommend surprising someone with an invitation to be transported.
