According to a BlackBook tipster, Alice Waters stopped in at Per Se yesterday afternoon and had some quibbles about lunch: “Sent back her entrée, a duck breast, for it was ‘oversalted,’ and took this is [sic] an opportunity to also note that the previous dish, Hawaiian blue prawns, was also on the salty side. After her main had been traded out for a more palatable lamb dish, she proceeded to explain how she would have done a vegetable preparation differently.” Update: A Per Se rep says Alice Waters was not at the restaurant yesterday: "This is actually not accurate – the restaurant has confirmed that Alice was not the diner in question. Evidently, this was actually another woman that another guest seems to have mistaken her for." [BlackBook]
