The hallmarks of French cuisine include rich sauces and ingredients that frequently question their existence and ethical responsibilities. Experience the phenomenological tastes of France with today's Groupon: for $12, you get your choice of either the lunch or the late-night prix fixe dinner (a $25 value) at Le Rivage in Midtown.

Nestled in Hell's Kitchen's theater district, Le Rivage has been feeding French cuisine to epicureous diners for around 30 years. Prix fixe meals allow gastronomes and Francophiles alike to enjoy three courses from the menu. Choose one appetizer, such as the duck meat terrine or lobster bisque, and follow it up with an entree of trout amandine, vegetarian ravioli, or coq au vin, a half chicken marinated in burgundy wine and served watching a Godard film. The prix fixe concludes with coffee or tea and your choice of desserts, including crème brûlée and apple crepes. Le Rivage's luxurious dining room is enveloped in exposed brick and pastoral paintings. White tablecloths and dim lighting make this an impressive place for a post-theater dinner date or a prepillaging meeting with fellow highwaymen.


Zagat rated the food and service very good to excellent. OpenTable reviewers give the restaurant a four-star rating and Yelpers give it an average of three stars:

  • Operating since 1958, this Restaurant Row “staple” still “delivers” pre-theater with “solid old-style French” fare “hustled out to you” by a “totally reliable” staff – Zagat
  • We have been going to LeRivage [sic] for many years and the food,service [sic] is outstanding. – OpenTable reviewer who dined on 11/20/2010

Le Rivage

With a history spanning three generations, Le Rivage now bubbles in the hands of Chef Paul Denamiel, who presides over a menu of French cuisine that garnered a 2011 New York award from the U.S. Commerce Association. Vibrant oil-paint landscapes and crosshatched wooden fixtures carry thoughts away to the French countryside, and white tablecloths warm beneath steaming plates of duck and mussels. Beside vases of cut flowers, lamb and filet mignon don Francophile garb in the form of burgundy and bordelaise sauces. Beyond the eatery's unobtrusive glowing sign, sautéed frog legs and other traditional dishes join a prix fixe or à la carte menu, and wines by the glass or bottle offer vintage luxury without the hindrance of a solid-teak sidekick.
