Today's Groupon gets you $50 worth of French and Italian fare for $25 at La Méditerranée, a demure West Loop storefront with an elegant atmosphere, fine food, and a BYOB policy. A stomach warmed on La Méditerranée's Old World sautées, roasts, and grills weathers the wilds of winter better than a hibernating bear or a non-hibernating bear wearing a warm coat and trapped between a pillowtop matress and a space heater.

The classic European cooking on the dinner menu includes vitello limone, sautéed veal scaloppini in lemon-butter wine sauce served over sautéed spinach ($19) and biftek au cabernet, a grilled 14-ounce New York steak with mashed potatoes, grilled asparagus, and shallot-cabernet sauce ($29). La Méditerranée's seasoned chef serves fish such as sautéed salmon ($20), tilapia ($18), and whitefish ($20). Unleash your inner Jerry or Popeye by choosing cheese-filled or spinach-filled ravioli ($12), or pasta including spaghetti with meatballs ($12) and penne pasta in spicy tomato sauce ($9).

The white tablecloth and bare-brick dining room lit by glass box chandeliers makes dinner at La Méditerranée an intimate affair. Bring a significant other or significant friend for a night of culinary courtliness and BYOBiness. Reservations are recommended, via phone or sultry whisper.

New Stereotypes to be Avoided at All Costs

La Méditerranée provides a flavorful combination of French and Italian cuisine. While savvy diners already know to avoid French and Italian stereotypes while exploring these cultures individually, their fusion introduces potential for a whole new set of faux pas. With that in mind, please avoid these new French-Italian stereotypes that we're just inventing right now and dispelling at the same time.

  • Not all French-Italians are Mafioso mimes.
  • It is a common misconception that all French-Italian women are supermodels. This is false. The populations of both genders are supermodels.
  • French-Italian bread is not just partial loaves of French bread and Italian bread held together by painter's tape.
  • While French-Italians do drink copious amounts of wine, it does not cause them to turn into grapes in old age and recruit their grandchildren for ritual "stomping ceremonies."
