French cuisine is decadent and filling, although less so once you realize that eating the entire cloth napkin is politely discouraged. Bon appétit with this Groupon.
$20 for $40 Worth of French Cuisine
The dinner menu includes steak frites served in maitre d' butter or blue cheese sauce ($27), stewed navy beans with sausage and duck confit in cassoulet ($16), or steak de thon de la mediterranee—seared tuna with grape tomatoes, olives, red onions, and olive oil on a bed of couscous ($26).
Proprietor Anne Amelot-Homes and her father, executive chef Christian Amelot, want to fly you to La Ferté-Bernard, their hometown in France. Unfortunately, paying airfare for everyone who asks would be too expensive, so they opened Anjou—an eatery that aims to bring the cuisine of their French village stateside. And amid dark wooden furniture and stonewalls, their menu of authentic bistro fare achieves just that. Waiters whisk out plates of steak frites coated in maitre d' butter and bowls filled with cassoulet—stewed navy beans with sausage and duck confit. White tablecloths also frame American-inflected entrees such as Café de Paris burgers garnished with herb butter, brie, and Gustave Eiffel's abandoned blueprints for a New-York-Paris skyway.:m]]
