What is the cheese course like at Per Se?

Answers from Our Experts (1)

Per Se doesn’t offer a cheese cart, but a composed cheese course is always a part of its tasting menus. The reason stems from a tradition at The French Laundry: When it opened, there was no room for a gueridon between tables. However, the chef loved the idea of a cheese course. The cheese changes along with the tasting menu every day; one recent course included Garrotxa, Krummenswiler, Tomme du Berger and Stilton cheeses served with apricot membrillo, licorice honey and niçoise olive croquettes. For a more traditional cheese course, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant’s salon serves four selections and four accompaniments.
