Le Périgord has certainly made a name for itself. Open in midtown Manhattan since 1964, the recently renovated restaurant is, according to the New York Times, “a French restaurant the way French restaurants used to be, the way no one makes them anymore.” The dining room features classic white tablecloths, attentive servers in tuxedos recommend bottles from an award-winning wine list, and staff tour the elegant dining room with a dessert cart. After enjoying roasted salmon in a lemon-saffron sauce or scallops with vegetable risotto, guests still allow themselves to be tempted by a fleet of decadent desserts.
The restaurant has been owned all these years by the Briguets: Georges, who is Swiss, and his French wife, Marie-Thérèse. They cultivate the sort of atmosphere where regulars have been visiting for decades, requesting their preferred tables and waiters. And new diners, whether they enjoy dishes from the à la carte menu or indulge in a prix fixe meal, will also receive the utmost attention in this dignified yet modern setting.
