3.) Per Se (Thomas Keller’s Restaurant Group) – This restaurant is just a stone’s throw away from Central Park at Time Warner Center, 10 Columbus Cir., it’s a great place to dine and enjoy the view that’s adjacent to it. Architect Adam D. Tihany designed Per Se based on Chef Thomas Keller’s interpretation of the French Laundry right in the heart of Time Warner Center. Keller’s team has at least 2 other chefs besides himself as well as a sommelier and a baker which is why their menu is second to none. Per Se is open from Monday to Sunday between 11:30AM–1PM and 5:30–9:30PM. Visit open table if you wish to make an advanced dinner reservation. They offer a nine-course meal made exclusively by Chef Thomas Keller as well as a vegetarian nine-course meal which is prepared by him and his team. Each meal will never be repeated twice, so no person will ever taste the same food when they dine at Per Se. Personally, I think it was Per Se’s menu that landed them the best restaurant reviews from customers.
