    Per Se puts a dent in your wallet for sure, but EMP lunch is something that shouldn't be missed

    Line cooked, you are not off at all. Ssam bar is great, I went this past memorial day and it was amazing. One of the best meals I have had in a restaurant.

    Mattrud was just joking around, he actually works there.

    I'm going to have to check this out, especially since I just found out an old friend of mine left Corton to work lunch service there...

    Per Se's tasting menu puts a hefty dent in the wallet for sure. But while it's no bargain like JG's lunch menu*, the a la carte salon menu with most dishes around $30-40 isn't too bad, especially considering service (which is exceptional) is included and you still get amuses and mignardises even if you just order a couple of courses.

    For my money (hah), the kitchen at Per Se is the best in the city -- a class above JG, EMP, Le Bernadin, and Daniel.

    * Speaking of bargains, you might want to check out Del Posto's excellent prix-fixe lunch. The room's a bit stuffy and the service isn't that warm, but for three courses at $29, it's the best high-end dining deal in the city. The desserts there are terrific.

    That's pretty stiff. $40 will still get you a 10 oz fillet, strip or Delmonico with either a salad or onion soup and a side dish at Bern's Steak House in Tampa.

    I don't know about you but I was pretty surprised when Sifton gave Del Posto such a great review. Obviously restaurants are entirely based on personal preference, but I haven't met anyone who thought Per Se was the best out of the five you mentioned.

    Even though Del Posto isn't even my favorite Batali/Bastianich restaurant, much less one of my favorites in the city, Ladner is unquestionably one of the city's great chefs and I think the lunch prix-fixe is a pittance to pay to eat his food.

    Funny you should say that about PS because I haven't heard anyone say anything to the contrary before. What would your pick be for a NY restaurant in its class?

    I think EMP is the best in New York right now, I also think both Daniel and Le Bernardin are better than Per Se. The most interesting food is probably at wd-50.
