Seasonal cuisine makes for a fresh, flavorful menu that reflects nature, unlike the unholy surf-and-turf created by force-feeding lobsters to cows. Dine in temporally harmonious style with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of seasonal Northwestern cuisine and drinks at Archery Bistro in Normandy Park.
Shoot yourself in the mouth with the deliciously straight-arrow flavors of Archery Bistro's seasonal menu. Current starters of lamb lollipops (meatballs with mint syrup, $8) and locally harvested mussels and clams à la normande (prepared in apple brandy with fennel and garlic butter, $7) will keep hyperactive taste buds focused as you look over spring/summer entrees such as the grilled Angus flat-iron steak with truffle fries and demi glaze ($15). The wine list at Archery Bistro varies with the menus, but diners can choose from more than 15 wines for under $9 by the glass. Feel free to ask your server for their expert advice on the finest entree/vino pairings or just to help extricate your hoof from the bear trap on the floor that—like the canoe suspended from the ceiling and the archery bows lining the walls for convenient dinner swashbuckling—adds to the bistro's rustic ambience.
Archery Bistro began when it opened on the site originally occupied by the old Northwest Archery building, taking their traditions of extreme precision on the target range and applying it to the neighborhood's taste buds. Archery Bistro's open, friendly atmosphere turns every group of bistro-goers into a boisterous gathering of merry men. Swing in via public-transit chandelier and enjoy a deliciously in-season feast with today's Groupon to Archery Bistro.
