edit: then again, i'm not so sure that a comparable $50 Cali chard wouldn't be $225+ on that list.

Per Se may be Per Se, but honestly, if they want $90, my reaction is fuck'em. And I am not given to strong reactions of this type.

I'd see it as worth it if you picked up something like 2000 La Tache for like $1450, which is a little below most retail offerings, and dealt with the $90 fee. And Per Se doesn't offer the 2000 La Tache. But this did not long ago, and they had it for a cool $5295.



at the end of the day, $90 suggests they don't quite want you bringing your own bottles.

Some good suggestions thus far. Here's what I'd do with that budget depending on what you're in the mood to drink. Have fun!

Pol Roger, Épernay MV $135
Gruner Veltliner F.X. Pichler, Federspiel, "Klostersatz" 2011 $115
Chablis Domaine Louis Michel et Fils, "Montée de Tonnerre" 2011 $130
Morgon Domaine Jean Foillard, "Côte du Py" 2011 $105 (if you don't want the Lapierre mag)
Crozes Hermitage Domaine Alain Graillot 2011 $100
Gigondas Domaine du Cayron 2009 $105

Thanks again guys, recommendations have been tremendously helpful. I found out today that we are being "upgraded" to a private room due to a connection by one of my dining companions. Has anyone seen the private room set-up at Per Se? I am kind of skeptical - I would much prefer to be around other diners than cordoned off in Siberia.

Private room = VIP = extra courses / special treatment.

Extra courses divided by special treatment? confused.gif
post #15807 of 17899
Yes!

Yes, that is what I gathered, I am excited to have TK personally spoon caviar into my mouth. My concern is that private rooms are usually isolated, extremely quiet and devoid of any sort of vibe that comes from being amongst other diners.

I too have an aversion to empty restaurants and private rooms. I like being around other diners.

Does the private room have "private corkage fees"?
