10 Columbus Cir., Time Warner Center, New York, NY 10019, United States

A tasting menu for two at superchef Thomas Keller's plushly impersonal 16-table dining room overlooking Columbus Circle will last three hours and set you back a cool 500 clams (and that’s not counting drinks). So why are reservations harder to come by than courtside seats for the Knicks? Because, from the parade of Fabergé-worthy amuse-gueules to the hail of post-dessert chocolates in flavors like orange blossom, Per Se delivers the sort of polish, pampering, and obsessive attention to detail not found anywhere else outside of Keller's own award-winning Napa flagship, French Laundry. Expect Keller’s legendary sourcing—quail, corn, and eggs from the smallest, most attentive farms in America—and his signature treats like butter-poached lobster, foie gras peach melba, and oysters and pearls (tapioca with Sterling white sturgeon caviar). That and the service, so classy, caring, and smart, will do more for your ego than years of therapy.
