The French have given the United States many tremendous gifts, such as the Statue of Liberty and the current Statue of Liberty, which subdued the first one after lightning made it evil. Befriend an entire nation with this Groupon.

The Purple Fig
Chef Sam Bryne and the staff at The Purple Fig acknowledge that their goals might be ambitious for such an intimate bistro, but the challenge of reviving French bistro cuisine with contemporary cooking methods and unusual ingredients is just too exciting for them to pass up. They're true artisans: not only do they butcher and fillet their own meat and fish, they also make their own terrines and other “squeamish things” such as blood pudding and Care Bear cake. The results are toothsome dishes plated with style and levity. Entrees have included dover sole with tomato confit jauntily topped by a pane of crisp prosciutto and other dishes like cylinders of rare lamb crowned with ratatouille and couscous.
The food isn’t the only thing that’s artfully arranged, the restaurant itself alternates between vintage and elegant. Exposed brick walls and dark wooden columns back the marble-topped bar and recall a glamorous speakeasy. White-clothed tables populate a dining room with purple patterned walls and a geometric skylight that allows the moon to slaver over the food below.
