BWW Reviews: LE PERIGORD A NYC Dining Gem
January 27, www.broadwayworld.com by Marina Kennedy
C’est tres excellent! There are countless reasons why Le Perigord has been pleasing their guests for over 50 years. The gracious, friendly service, the delicious modern and traditional French fare, and the elegant, yet relaxing venue all lend themselves to a delightful dinner. We suggest you put Le Perigord on your list of top New York City restaurants to visit for a real evening on the town.
And when owner, Georges Briguet greets you at the door as he has been for 5 decades, you feel an immediate connection to Le Perigord whether it is your first visit or you are one of their many regulars. As a matter of fact, there’s a true sense of family here, a staff that works together to insure that everyone who visits has the best possible dining experience.
The furnishings are chic and timeless. One can even imagine the evening that Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton captured media attention in one of Le Perigord’s corner booths. This is a favorite spot for celebrated guests, East Siders and United Nations dignitaries.
The cuisine is an absolute stand-out among New York City’s iconic dining spots. Their 50th Anniversary tasting menu may be one of the best ways to experience the depth of the culinary artistry of Executive Chef, Joel Benjamin. It includes traditional favorites like House foie gras, Sweetbreads in a thin crepe, Lobster Thermador and Duck a l’orange, Endive, watercress and red beet salad as well as dessert.
