In addition to charming contemporary chompers with a rotating menu of seasonal sups, Le Giverny Bistro's culinary quests have earned it awards and accolades from previously pleased palates. Nestled snugly in the European-style Emory Inn, Le Giverny manifests mellifluous dinner and lunch menus, sprinkled with Mediterranean-style spices and furnished by local farmers markets. Chef and Paris-native Rémy Kerba starts lunch off small with a bevy of baby bites to exercise adult appetites. Robustly ruminate on Kerba's famous house-made pork rillettes, accompanied by dijon, cornichons, and baguette croutons ($8), or the iceberg and blue cheese salad, topped with crisp bacon and creamy homemade dressing ($6). Both dinner diners and lunch-goers can languish over Le Giverny's sautéed rainbow trout grenobloise, pan-fried and covered in toasted almonds ($14 for lunch, $19 for dinner), or the grilled fillet of salmon, splashed with a basil and olive-oil pistou ($14 for lunch, $18 for dinner). Evening eaters can feast on a bistro staple with the steak-frites specialty ($26), in which herbed butter coats a center-cut strip steak, earning it friends with steak knives, butter knives, and sophisticated babies alike.
Anis Café & Bistro takes its diners on a trip to Southern France with Provençal versions of Mediterranean-inspired cuisine and the cozy setting of a French cottage. Although Anis serves dinner and lunch, today's Groupon is for the recently added Sunday brunch. Beret-bearing specialties include the cured-salmon croque monsieur with sweet tomato, soft goat cheese, roasted Bermuda onion, and capers ($11). Eggs get their moment in the pan with the three-egg omelette, a fluffy sleeping bag of scrambled oeufs stuffed with your choice of fillings such as asparagus, broccolini, tomatoes, artichokes, portabello mushrooms, sausage, chicken, and prosciutto ($12). Shellfish open up to compassionate brunchers with the Moules Marinières, mussels in white wine, garlic, parsley, and cream ($11). Carnivorous connoisseurs can make it a meatier midmorning with the steak frites–– grilled bistro steak with sauce au poivre, french fries, and baby greens ($17). For a sweet ending or scrumptious main course, Anis also serves the Parisian favorite Nutella crêpes, filled with bananas, Nutella, and toasted almonds ($8). Anis is cocooned in a converted house that has been renovated to reflect the atmosphere of a homey restaurant in the South of France. With exposed brick, warm lighting, and an eclectic collection of art adorning the attractively hued walls, Anis is a romantic destination for couples and their oblivious third wheels. The bistro also boasts a tree-shaded outdoor patio that is open to dining and ennui relishing year-round.
We take root from an Eastern European creperie chain The 12 Months founded in 2002. We use high-quality ingredients that we wrap in our original crepes like a burrito but they're so much more flavorful and tasty that it adds a new flavor and a twist to any popular filling. Crepes are always fresh and made to order.
