Pergola Des Artistes
What our friends and staff say:
Fancy place with a great kitchen! Amazing four-course menu!
Basically a wormhole between Theatre district and Paris – you dine under the Eiffel Tower and then see a show on Broadway.
An amazing place to have a glass of classy wine before a Broadway show.
French cuisine and American musicals! Name a more iconic duo, we’ll wait. Jokes aside, we in BroadwayPass really love the classy French cuisine and we know that a lot of people love combining it with great Broadway shows. One of the best places around to enjoy this combo is Pergola Des Artistes. Situated just next to some of the big Broadway theatres – “Richard Rogers”. “Music Box”, “Gerald Schoenfeld”, “Walter Kerr”, “The Majestic”, “Minskoff” and many other. So, if you want to check some top-grossers like “Hamilton”, “Dear Evan Hansen”, “The Lion King”, “Come From Away” or the eternal classic “The Phantom of the Opera”, and get some fancy pre-show dinner, then Pergola Des Artistes is the place to visit.
Pergola Des Artistes takes pride in its menu and has dishes for all needs and tastes. They have a vastly rich list with lunch specials, lunch A la Carte, 2 and 4-course dinners.
The lunches are tasty and nutritious. Like we mentioned above – the list is rich, and you can pick virtually anything for any taste. From classics like Filet Mignon, Salmon Filet to Eggplant Napoleon for the vegetarians. The A la Carte offers Hors D’oeuvres (bite-like appetizers), some hits like Filet of Sole Meuniere, Boneless Braised Beef Short Rib over polenta, and Lobster Tail Salad. They prepare vegetarian meals on request. And for $11.50 you can add soup or salad, dessert, and coffee or tea.
The multi-course dinners are where Pergola Des Artistes shines. The two-course consists of first course offering French onion soup gratinee; Lobster bisque, or Mixed green salad, and the second one – by the entrees, and some of those, mentioned above. You can add some Tasty extras including House cured salmon, Baker’s dozen escargot, the world’s best garlic bread (!!!). The dessert’s choice has some sweet offers like Lemon Sorbet, Chocolate Mousse, and Poire Helene. The four-course dinner offers appetizers, mid-course, and entrees.
The wine list is probably the fanciest around. From the superb Cote du Rhone, and Pinot Noir, to some extraordinary offers like 2009 Pauillac, Chateau Neuf du Pape, and Bordeaux Reserve. Also, there are pretty good cocktails, ranging between $12 and $15.
The place offers two winter specials – Bouillabaisse and Cassoulet. The Bouillabaisse is a seafood dish with garlic, saffron, fennel, bouquet garni, and a pinch of cayenne. It includes lobster tail shrimp, dry-pack sea scallops, monkfish, Manilla clams, Prince Edward Island mussels, and seared black cod. The Cassoulet is a rich stew with smoked pork bones, seared slab bacon, and garlic sausage. Both of them are amazing for the cold season, so don’t hesitate and go grab some before spring arrives.
You can have your private event at Pergola Des Artistes. They can accommodate up to 70 people, which is relatively large for the Times Square standards.
Pergola Des Artistes is a family-run place with a rich history. The place opened doors in 1963 and was run by Marie and Jacques Ponsolle, who came to the USA in 1950 from France. Today, the restaurant is managed by Christian Ponsolle, Marie and Jacques’ son.
