Feast around the proper tableside etiquette of France with today's Groupon: for $40, you get $80 worth of fine French cuisine and drinks at Brasserie 73 in the heart of Skippack Villiage.
If people are what they eat and generally eat three meals a day, then indulging at Brasserie 73 for lunch and dinner can help you achieve up to 66.66% of the je ne sais quoi you need to land the starring role in Amelie: Part Deux. Start the meal of your choice with some succulent slurps of lobster-tomato bisque topped with a flaky puff pastry ($10), or apply the vibrant crimson hues of a roasted beet salad ($7 dinner, $10 lunch) to your lips, its earthy flavors balanced with creamy, crumbled chevre. For dinner's first course, indulge in a serving of pan-seared foie gras atop sweet dried-apricot risotto and drizzled with white truffled honey ($18) or cinnamon-dusted scallops with pickled jalapeños ($16). Beef buffs, on the other hand, can delight in the grilled NY strip steak served with caramelized cauliflower, onion rings, and smoked tomato coulis ($33) while herbivores happily help themselves to plates of garden vegetable pasta ($15).
For dessert, enable a fellow raging chocoholic with a chocolate lover's plate (chocolate mousse cake, chocolate crème brûlée, and chocolate sorbet, $12), or stuff yourself with an order of stuffed french toast all on your own (served with sweet crème fraiche, candied walnuts, warm apricot glaze, and French vanilla ice cream, $8). Brasserie 73's elegant yet warm décor and coursed menu invite diners to cozy up and stay awhile, and the restaurant's lovely outdoor patio provides a wonderful place to complete your repast with a glass of fine wine or a reach for the swiss-cheese orb. Pepé le Pews can finally seduce their accidentally striped black cats with a fine French dinner at Brasserie 73.
