What You'll Get
Drop everything and run to get today’s Groupon: $20 for a $50 voucher at Bonsoiree Restaurant in Logan Square at 2728 W. Armitage Avenue. With a discount of 60% on contemporary French cuisine as renowned as Bonsoiree, you just might have to put aside all that ill-will towards the French you’ve harbored since their cowardly reluctance to invade Iraq back in 03. Bonsoiree is totally past all that - and as a gesture of friendship, they’re offering you this Groupon valid any Tuesday through Thursday. They’ll even let you call their Duck entree Freedom Duck, if it makes you feel better.
Chicago Times says that Bonsoiree “fishes out the freshest fare from the sea.” Metromix exclaims, “Pinch us, we’re in BYOB heaven.” Check out the other glowing reviews from the Chicago Reader, Chicago Sun Times, and 190 North on Bonsoiree’s website. Even the always-critical Yelp community gave Bonsoiree a 4.5 out of 5 stars.
This Chicago hotspot is renown for bringing the “underground dining” experience to the city. “Underground dining,” not to be confused with eating hotpockets in your basement, is an attempt to bring intimate meals to a public setting. Bonsoiree offers a seasonal menu and evolving aesthetic that will make sure your dining experience is never stale. The decorative floral arrangements change every week, and even the dinnerware has been meticulously selected to accentuate the food on your plate. It’s like eating dinner on the set of a Wes Anderson movie, sans the disappointing father figures and Bill Murray. And don’t despair - if change frightens you, the core familiarities will always remain at Bonsoiree: great food, professional staff and an unforgettable atmosphere.
Bonsoiree offers classic French cuisine with exquisitely prepared five, seven, and thirteen course meals for your enjoyment. Head chef Shin Thompson melds a unique fusion of French and Japanese influences to fashion unique and inspired dishes, such as soy sauce on a baguette. Just kidding… more like these mouth watering delicacies: Grilled Snow Crab, Huckleberry-Basted Quail and Amuse Rabbit Shooter. Their culinary experts have assembled creations that were previously thought to exist only in the recesses of great food dreams, like: Homemade Mesquite-Smoked Bacon in a Box with Toasted Marshmallows or Goat Cheese, Explorateur with Blackberry Ash Pound Cake, named after and endorsed by the Goth rock-star, Blackberry Ash.
And being a BYOB establishment, Bonsoiree will happily suggest wines to compliment your dinner if the Red Stripe and Inside-Out Crusted Trout combination is not quite hitting the spot. They even have a handy list of BYOB combos to avoid:
- PBR and Halibut
- Bathtub Gin and Filet Mignon
- Mike’s Hard Lemonade and Duck
- Mike’s Soft Lemonade and Hard Duck
- Peppermint Schnapps and Nut Crusted Lake Trout
- Trout Schnapps and Peppermint Crusted Lake Finds
- Rubbing Alcohol and Watercress Salad
So act today, and don’t miss a chance to dine at a restaurant that is the essence of class and fine dining. It’s time to get yourself out of that food rut that has you on a first name basis with Jimmy John’s employees.
