  1. are you asking for recs for lunch?

    1. You'll have a great time. One of the best meals of my life and I've dined all over the world. Enjoy.

        Piling on to say me too, last year's birthday dinner was in the top 10, maybe even 5.

      2. Be sure to ask for the Oysters and Pearls. Even if it's not on the lunch menu they'll probably let you substitute it in at no extra cost, and it's phenomenal.

        1. Spring for the Foie Supplement - worth every single penny.

          1. One other thing - ask for the donuts and coffee. Its a dessert that's not on the menu - definitely worth it.

              You should also ask if they have the" Oysters and Pearls". I believe the dish has Island Creek Oysters, pearl tapioca, and sturgeon caviar. I had it at the French Laundry and it was one of the better dishes I had for lunch there imo.

                yep - they definitely have it at Per Se, opened the meal with it when I was there. Was sublime...
