Le Périgord
Le Perigord
Waiters don tuxes, men wear jackets, meats are carved tableside, and desserts are wheeled about on a trolley. The whole experience at Le Périgord reflects reverence for tradition, with a few contemporary touches: Sweetbread salad is served with harissa; escargots are dressed up with hazelnut butter and chanterelles. Not to be missed: the classic Grand Marnier soufflé, which is whisked to the table hot and puffy from the oven. Thank heaven for time warps.

Old world restaurant. Great food. Elaborated. Expensive. Location is rather boring and service is very traditional. Not a bad thing. More suitable for business than romance. U.N. people tend to go there when in session. I once saw Ms. Condoleezza Rice and the President of Spain at the time dining there.
