You’ll need a reservation to dine in the main dining room at Per Se. You can make a reservation at the New York restaurant one month before your desired date by calling Per Se between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. local time, or by booking online through OpenTable. Per Se does accept walk-ins in its comfortable salon, which serves an à la carte menu. You can enjoy a cocktail and a full dinner in the chic salon. If you order food, you’ll also receive some of Per Se’s signature amuse bouches and mignardises. It’s a great way to get a taste of the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant without having to commit to the full nine-course tasting menu in the main dining room. It’s also a good idea if you’re not sure of your schedule, since canceling a reservation at Per Se with less than three days’ notice will cost you $175 per person. For that amount, you can have a fantastic meal in the salon, without any worries.
