New Yorkers love their takeout but they're not getting it from Per Se. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant's signature salmon tartare cornet just wouldn't taste as good from a takeout box — however nice that box may be. The elegant presentation at Per Se is an integral part of the experience at the New York restaurant. Besides, for the prices the restaurant charges, you'll want to put on a jacket, sit down at one of the tables overlooking Central Park and have one of the knowledgeable servers walk you through a tasting.
If you're looking for a last-minute bite and an ordinary meal just won't do, consider visiting the restaurant's salon, where you can order from the à la carte menu, which includes some of the dishes chef and owner Thomas Keller made famous. There's even a couch to make you feel at home.
