“Per Se, quite frankly, was named because we were looking at the ampersand symbol and found that in the word ‘ampersand’ is the word ‘per se.’ We researched the definition of “per se” and found it meant something unique—something ‘in and of itself.’ It really personified what the restaurant was going to be.

More than 500 gathered under the tent to enjoy an incredible summer menu prepared by a fantastic team of chefs and to fête guests of honor Alex von Bidder and Julian Niccolini of the Four Seasons.
