Paris is celebrated as the most romantic city on earth for its soft nighttime lights, intimate cafés, and myriad Eiffel Towers dotting street vendors' carts. Transport taste buds to the City of Light with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of French cuisine at 33rd & Dine French Cafe. Entrees range from $9.95 to $20.95
Lauded by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel for his authentic cuisine, 33rd & Dine's French-born head chef and owner Holland Emmanuel crafts a menu of upscale eats. Diners strike a nonaggression pact over the equally divided nibbles of a shared appetizer such as escargots or the homemade french country pate.
Savory crêpes embrace flavorful fillers, from the savoyarde's sausage, sautéed apples, and swiss cheese to the vegetarian crêpe's cornucopia of garden-plucked stuffers. Shallot sauce blankets the beefsteak, and a duo of french fries and a baked tomato sing it lullabies. Revitalize drab grins with a salmon fillet drizzled in béarnaise sauce and ratatouille. Diners can relax in the bistro’s charming interior with cream-colored walls flecked with sconces and draped linens or befriend a breezy zephyr in the eatery's outdoor dining area.
33rd and Dine French Cafe
When chefs pour batter across a hot griddle at 33rd & Dine French Cafe, there’s no telling whether they’re starting a savory or sweet crepe until they spoon in the filling. Classic French savory options include swiss cheese, ham, bacon, and garlic cream. Sweeter choices abound, and diners can construct dessert crepes with bananas, chocolate sauce, strawberries, or full cartons of ice cream. The extensive menu doesn’t stick to crepes, but delves headlong into French cuisine with starters such as french onion soup and escargot, and main dishes such as croque monsieurs, duck-leg confit, and the restaurant’s signature beefsteak, which comes drizzled in shallot sauce.
