Thomas Keller's restaurants are known for the quality of the ingredients used in the trend-setting cuisine. Here, we see fresh tomatoes that are being stored on racks in one of Per Se's many "reach-in" refrigerators. Instead of having large walk-in coolers, as do many restaurants, Per Se has many of these large reach-in fridges, and in this one, there are several pull-out racks on which the staff keeps fragile fruits and vegetables that can't be stacked.
A behind-the-scenes story on the technology and gear of The French Laundry and Per Se can be found here.
