Bella New York dined at Le Périgord, one of New York’s established restaurants and member to this year’s French Restaurant Week (July 13-19, 2015). Celebrating fifty years with an extensive renovation, Le Périgord still serves classics with sophistication like Duck a L’Orange, Filet de bœuf grillé ou Wellington sauce Périgourd and our favorite Poulet rôti au vin jaune du Jura morilles et gratin Dauphinois. The morrilles were amazing and the gratin addicting.
In honor of Bastille Day on July 14, French Restaurant Week kicked off in New York City on Monday, July 13 and runs through July 19. Commemorating the start of the French Revolution and the storming of the Bastille, Bastille Day is a national celebration in France. As the French have contributed so much to America’s culinary culture, and, in particular, New York’s, restaurants around the city are celebrating with delicious dining deals and dishes.
We’re excited to be part of this year’s event and will be offering a special dinner menu of $178.90 for dinner for four!
We’re excited that OpenTable listed Le Périgord as one of only a handful of “très magnifique” French restaurants in the U.S. where you can celebrate Bastille Day. In their own words:
For over five decades, this Manhattan mainstay has been setting the bar for the classic French dining experience. The service is impeccable; the linens are pure white and crisp; the food a stirring reminder why France’s food is considered some of the best in the world. Hone in on the velveteen lobster bisque, veal medallions accented with morel sauce, and whatever strikes your fancy on the pastry trolley for dessert.
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Come to Le Périgord for Bastille Day—or any day—for an experience that is très magnifique!
