Per Se to offer a la carte menu

  1. Yeah, its going to be interesting to see what they offer. Didn't I read somewhere that Masa lowered their price, too? I believe there was another story about a couple with an awkward meal at Masa, as they were the only 2 at the restaurant the entire night. But really, who wants to spend $500 for a meal when so many restaurants are offering great cuisine for affordable prices - hence the continual extension of restaurant week deals.

      Masa's price went from $450 to $400.

      1. re: RGR

        Thanks for the clarification, RGR. I've never eaten at Masa, but I wonder if the price drop will really result in increased diners. If you've eaten there, do you think the experience was worth the $450/now $400?

        1. re: pastry634

          Despite that reduction, it doesn't seem like much of a bargain, does it? I don't eat sushi, so no Masa for me.

            I ate at masa and unfortunetly it was awesome. I did not want it to be that good because it was so expensive.

              Yeah, I can see what you mean tpigeon. It's almost like the price tag is a measure of the amount of skepticism one should have. "There is no way anything can be THAT good."

      2. I might just dine at Per Se now. Their prix fixe didn't interest me.
