To perfect a French accent, linguists recommend either learning the language’s complicated system of diacritics or speaking with a mouth full of escargot. Seize the opportunity to ooh-la-la with this Groupon.

Retro Bistro

An unassuming strip-mall storefront belies Retro Bistro’s cozy dining room, where wall murals painted by a local artist and white-draped tables set the scene for elegant French and Tuscan cuisine. The menu, which pleased Zagat's tasters, balances upscale plates of seared foie gras or wasabi-crusted ahi tuna with more casual options, including sandwiches and Alsatian-style flambéed pizzas.

“I think that’s what people realize when they get here—how affordable it can be to get out for dinner,” said Christopher Barth, who owns the bistro along with his wife, Lorraine. “We have so many regulars.”

Lorraine cites the pair’s love of food, people, and wine as the passion behind their business, and the amply stocked wine list features plenty of budget-friendly bottles, as well as reserve vintages to toast special occasions, such as an engagement or a piñata making it to retirement. The eatery’s bar and lounge area also facilitates revelry, as mixologists blend specialty martinis with a focus on fruit-infused and chocolate-flavored options.

    “This is an awesome place. Chris, the owner, is a wonderful presence there, and he makes sure his guests are happy and treated well. The food speaks for itself: wonderful fresh food, outstanding fish, great appetizers, divine desserts, and a great wine list, and they make a mean martini! We have been going there for 20 years, and we are never disappointed. Retro Bistro is the hidden gem of Mount Prospect and the northwest suburbs!”
