The self-described “urban interpretation” of The French Laundry in Yountville, Per Se is clearly a Thomas Keller venue. Each day at Per Se features two nine-course tasting menus, a chef’s tasting menu and a vegetable tasting, with small, meticulously crafted plates that showcase Keller’s deep-seated faith in the connection between personal integrity and perfect cuisine. The experience is complete with Pastry Chef Elwyn Boyles’ carefully crafted and beautifully plated desserts that play with classic American flavors, like sarsaparilla and popcorn. Sommelier Michel Couvreux expertly pairs both expected and unexpected wines, and shares her thoughts on the pairings in an understated and well-spoken manner befitting the restaurant.
