My family and I have eaten in this French restaurant featuring dishes from the Perigord region several times over the past 20 years; the owner comes from that region and it is fun to discuss his home town when he has time. A recent lunch...More

We had a wonderful meal here. It is restaurant week, and we ordered from the special discount menu. Everything was superb. Will be worth returning to at regular prices. We were in the back room, which was quieter than the front so we liked being...More

Lovely service and delicious food! This place is a NYC institution, and it is clearly well loved. I am a fan of the old-fashioned and old world, and I enjoyed my special 35th anniversary lunch at Le Perigord.

This is the iconic New York that so many visitors

iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal

At 48 years old, Le Perigord features classic French cuisine in an elegant setting. Le Perigord just renovated the whole restaurant in 2011, don't forget to come in and take a look at our beautiful new decor.The New York Times calls it "a French restaurant the way French restaurants used to be;" complete with starched white linen tablecloths and exemplary service from wait staff in tuxedos. In addition to tableside service of Dover sole, duck a l'orange and rack of lamb, the traditional fare also includes such staples as individual beef Wellington, quenelles of pike, coquilles St Jacques and kidneys in mustard sauce, and don't forget to leave room for the fabulous souffles and the legendary "temptation trolley" of desserts which always includes such timeless favorites as tarte Tatin, chocolate mousse and floating islands. The extensive, award-wining wine list includes a fine selection of both old & recent vintages, all at sensible prices.
