          Del Posto is nowhere near the level of Per Se. Per Se is one of the top 2 or 3 fine dining restaurants in the United States, Del Posto is not one of the top 2 or 3 fine dining in the city.

          EMP is a wonderful place, truly a gem, but if you ask the staff there where the best restaurant in the city is, many (most?) of them will say Per Se.

            I agree - though the margin is slim between EMP and Per Se.

            Will be doing both again in just over a month and cannot wait.

            Wouldn't return to Del Posto unless someone else was paying - and even then I'd consider spending my own money to go back to Lincoln, Babbo, Ai Fiori, or Scarpetta instead.

              Oh yes, I very much agree (with your whole post). I wanted to go back and edit mine to make clear that I wasn't implying that Per Se was head and shoulders above EMP, just that the people at EMP have strong admiration for Per Se, but it was too late.
