Leave twisty moustaches and berets behind while enjoying French cuisine that’s faithfully traditional, but far from stereotypical with today's Groupon: for $35, you get $75 worth of fine cuisine at Le Périgord, an eatery 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 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). After the first few courses, board the pastry trolley ($10) or dabble in soufflé ($8). Those preferring a prix fixe option, due to a Batman-villainesque addiction to rhyming, then get the three-course lunch for $32, or the three-course dinner for $65.
