Quick: Per Se Still Has A 6:00 PM Reservation Opening Tonight

Tyler Durden's picture


Update: 15 seconds later, all open Per Se reservations had been taken. Better luck after the next hurricane.

New York is back, baby. Best way to check? Restaurant reservations. And the best cross referencing place for that these days is OpenTable. A cursory check shows that of the 616 restaurants indicating availability for tonight, many already have the much desired 7:00 pm slot already booked up. Among these are such bastions of haute gourmet as Asiate, Rouge, Cipriani Caravaggio, Ouest, Felidia, Triomphe, and of course Dorsia Per Se. Which means only thing: New York has picked itself up, brushed off the rain drops from its $10,000 fitted Zegna suits, and is back to eating. The good news: Per Se still has a 6 PM opening (although probably not for long after this post).

Natural destructive events such as Storms, Earthquakes, etc should not be classified as disaster events, they are, according to many, a boost to the local economy, and therefore an asset, not a liability. They boost the local Funeral business, building business, plumbing, retail, you name it! They even entice people to go out an spend after being spared, or have a family BBQ.

Natural destructive events even bring people together.

Perhaps in the future we should be saying something like; Look, there's another hurricane asset forming over Florida, or a cyclone asset forming over Queensland, a Tsunami asset off Japan, or a Mud Slide & Flood Asset in China. All of which leave prosperity and happiness in their wake.

Mother Nature, kicking FED Quantitative-ZIRP arse in the race to save the global economy.

PS. and she does it without erroding your purchasing power too; try and beat that one Shlameel Bernanke!

We always have space available at our table for guests, and we still have some of last night's roast beef left over for lunch, if you hurry.  I am thinking french dip, with a little of Mrs. Horseman's homemade chedder melted on top on her freshy ground whole wheat bread.

No, it is slow roasted for about three hours.  

Tender as can be.  You should try it sometime.

It is hard to get the right color temperature on a camera phone with stained glass kitchen lights.

$10/meal is standard. $20/meal is the max I'll go, and it better come with some goddamn beer. $200/plate is beyond my comprehension. Hell, if I had $200 to spare, I'd probably buy a new skateboard and shoes.

I would rather buy a homeless guy some shoes and the wallstreet guy the skateboard, hoping he smashes his face into the pavement. THen my homeless friend pisses on his face. That would be the best thing to do with 200 bucks.

In that case I'd rather give the skateboard to the homeless guy too. He can smash the trucks into the pig's face and then piss all over it before riding off into the night. Definitely do not buy anything ever for a wall street guy.

So are the monster year-end Wall Street bonuses. Same-old, same old. With Bernanke and the Fed ensuring Wall Street make nice year-end comps how can one in the industry loose? They can even steal from trading accounts and the SEC/CFTC look the other way.

you mean the private sector is back open for biz despite the obvious total incompetence of the NY State to secure sea walls... meanwhile on that topic..

State power is patchy

State trains a shipwreck

State tubes go submarine (got aqualungs?) 

Nuclear plants lucky not to go Fukinshambles

and we all know NY banking is State propped-up bankrupts since 2008

Thank fuck everything isn't run by the State or you'd be eating BBQ'd rat on the streets tonight.

NYC is a huge cockroach city, you just can't get rid of them.  Step on them and they just squirt out the sides and end up elsewhere. Most serious infestations require large, industrial strength bug bombs.

New York City with the help of the Fed levies a massive tax on the rest of the country.  It is through trillion dollar bailouts of the banksters by the Fed, it is ZIRP by the Fed (expense of savers), it is complete regulatory capture of the SEC ($9 million parting gift to Mary Schapiro before she became SEC chief) and Gary Gensler of the CFTC (More than 4 years to investigate silver manipulation), it is HFT which harms markets, it is insider trading (only those who work for Steve Cohen engage in insider trading, Steve is above that).

The Federal Reserve is the sovereign power in these United States with the ability to move trillions into the pockets of its friends (who are predomoninantly banksters in New York) without every having to worry about an audit.  Is at a surprise that a simple 1000 square foot apartment can cost $1 million and much more in New York?  - your money at work.

Now the rest of the country will be spending the tens of billions required to repair the damage inflicted by Sandy.  New York City will get richer and have a few more fancy restaurants. The banksters would not have it any other way.
