Thomas Keller's Per Se is the urban counterpart to his famed wine country institution, The French Laundry. At Per Se, Keller has won over New Yorkers by taking his artful, indulgent French Laundry experience to an environment tailored to urbane sensibilities. While Per Se has blossomed, Keller's Napa original thrives as the master spends time in both kitchens, ensuring that each coast receives his endless processions of culinary perfection, and a spot on our list.
