Leave your twisty moustaches and berets at home while enjoying French cuisine that’s faithfully traditional but far from stereotypical. For $35, you’ll get $75 worth of cuisine at Le Périgord, a Times-praised eatery located in Midtown East. Men will need to wear a jacket and slacks to dine (tie optional); women are invited to optionally wear their favorite penguin brooch.

With menu items such as the filet de bœuf grillé ou Wellington sauce Périgourdine, the simple act of ordering at Le Périgord will add a touch of elegance to your life. Everything sounds better in French, and the rule extends to your taste buds as well. The aforementioned dish is the grilled filet mignon or Wellington with black truffle sauce ($35 a la carte). Appetizers range from $10 (mixed green salad) to $25 (warm foie gras with seasonal fruits). When you’re through with the first few courses, board the pastry trolley ($10) or dabble in soufflé ($8).

If you prefer a prix fixe option, due to your poor French pronunciation and a Batman-villainesque addiction to rhyming, then get the three-course lunch for $32, or the three-course dinner for $65. Refer to the menu for possible appetizer, entree , and dessert combinations.

Reviews

The New York Times recommends Le Périgord if you’re in the mood for no-fuss French:

  • Le Perigord is a survivor among an endangered species in New York: a solid French restaurant in a civilized setting that is conducive to both tranquil socializing and discreet business entertaining…. The food harmonizes with the atmosphere. The young French-trained chef, Antoine Bouterin, is skilled at mixing up his pitches to offer something for everyone. His menu pays obeisance to classic cuisine yet at the same time keeps in step with the latest trends. You will find dishes as homespun as cornish hen Perigourdine and braised beef with carrots or as au courant as sliced duck breast with essence of passion fruit or gratin of shrimp coated with sesame seeds in lobster and shrimp sauce.

Citysearchers give Le Périgord four stars, Yelpers give it three, and a reviewer for New York Social Diary appreciates the professional, yet laid back atmosphere:

  • I've been coming to Le Perigord for years and it still remains one of the best French restaurants in the city. – dowork, Citysearch
  • Le Périgord is one of the few restaurants where the customers aren’t busy texting and depositing their buzzing blackberries on the dinner table. – Jordana, New York Social Diary

Fancy Pants

Gentlemen are required to don a jacket to dine at Le Périgord—jeans are a no-no. You don’t need to purchase an entirely new wardrobe to enjoy a higher echelon of dining, but there are still a few items best left at home:

  • two-man pantomime horse costume
  • “World’s Scariest Step-dad” T-shirt
  • adult-sized Bob The Builder footie pajamas with “bottom flap”
  • beer helmet
  • homemade fur coat

Superb food. Classic French cuisine expertly prepared. Service is skillful and considerate.

If you like French at all, this is the place to try. Old time feel of elegance. The waiters are VERY seasoned veterans and know their business entirely. They make the experience so enjoyable. The menu offers MANY decadent choices. We enjoyed everything our table ordered: stuffed zucchini blossoms, the appetizer buffet, roast duck, beef bourguignon, venison in a fantastic sauce, which was also great on the duck... You have to see the dessert cart to appreciate the variety and quality. Go here! Be hungry when you arrive. YUMMMMM.
