Le Perigord - 405 E 52nd St (between 1st Ave & F D R Dr) New York, NY 10022 Neighborhood: Midtown East (212) 755-6244
The selection they had for the restaurant week menu was very limited. I was only given a choice of two or three items for each course. I ended up getting the risotto with sea scallops for the main course and chocolate mousse for dessert. The risotto tasted very bland and the rice was actually still a little undercooked. The plating for the chocolate mousse was unimpressive. One scoop of chocolate mousse drizzled in some sauce with a few berries on the side wasn't exactly what I had in mind from this traditional French restaurant.
Price: Expensive (if you're not ordering from the Restaurant Week menu)
