The Time Warner Center has its first visit from the NY City Fire Department! Chef Thomas Keller's restaurant Per Se had a fire yesterday that closed the restaurant. Luckily, everyone safely got out and only a firefighter needed to be treated for minor injuries. The true casualty is the kitchen, which will force the restaurant to be closed till Monday.
Gothamist happened to be at the Time-Warner Center Williams-Sonoma when the fire occured. The smoke did waft into the whole mall.
