Le Périgord , the unpretentiously pedigreed Sutton Place dining institution,may be 45 years old, but a spiffy refurbishing and the always wonderful food keeps celebrities, U.N. delegates and loyal regulars returning year in and year out, to make this Grand Dame NY’s most satisfying luxury French restaurant.

The remarkable $65 fixed price dinner ($32 at lunch) makes Le Périgord  a dining bargain as well. The Appetizer display is fresh and beautiful, with tempting choices of smoked salmon, steamed asparagus and an array of salads and cold dishes.

Le Périgord remains a bastion of high-powered Gallic gastronomy and classically refined service.  And thanks to its charming owner/host, Georges Briguet, even first time visitors feel a warm welcome. One of Manhattan’s restaurant gems. Rating: A Major.
