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!
Le Perigord is proud to be a part of the growing conversation about seafood in connection with sustainable food by participating in the New York City edition of National Sustainable Seafood Week, June 22 -28. The week is dedicated to raising the profile of the importance of maintaining the world’s seafood supply eating only fish and shellfish that have been caught or farmed in ways that consider the long term vitality of harvested species and the well being of the oceans, as well as the livelihoods of fishing dependent communities.
The week gives an educational, collaborative and tasty face to the sustainable seafood movement, which began in the 1990s, and involves more than 40 restaurants highlighting dishes featuring responsibly sourced seafood, along with a series of events such as an oyster farm tour and tasting and a guided tour of the new Fulton Fish Market.
All of the fish and seafood served at Le Perigord is deemed sustainable, but for this special week, we will showcase our Dover sole with lemon butter meuniere sauce, or grilled with mustard sauce, which has been one of our most popular dishes since we opened more than 51 years ago on April 1, 1964. In fact, for the first time, we will share our recipes for it during National Sustainable Seafood week on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/leperigord. They will be available on the page throughout the week.
