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. Relish the gift of French fare with today's Groupon to A La Provence, located on Timberlane Road. Choose between the following options:
- For $25, you get $50 worth of French-Mediterranean cuisine during dinner.
- For $10, you get $20 worth of French-Mediterranean cuisine during lunch.
The palate-pleasing maestros at A La Provence proffer an elegant array of French-Mediterranean dishes crafted with grass-fed beef, seafood purchased fresh daily, and premium domestic veal and lamb. The dinner menu features a selection of items available a la carte, and prix fixe form ($46 for an appetizer, entree, intermizzo, and dessert) provides a gastronomic to-do list to prevent eaters from skipping a mealtime step. Maritime fare includes the pistachio-crusted rainbow trout, dressed with priceless heirloom-tomato confit and spinach ($22). A duo of 5-ounce New York strip steak and three grilled jumbo shrimp make the surf and turf ($20) a combination of sea and land even more exciting than underwater high-jump competitions.
Lunch patrons can tame midday cravings with a plate of duck confit coupled with steel-cut oats, maple syrup truffle oil glaze, and blueberry jam ($11). A chicken-salad sandwich spread across crispy french bread ($8) offers eaters fluffy holders for creamy stuffing.
While this Groupon is valid for the prix fixe dinner menu, it is not valid for the ambassador dinner.
A La Provence
The chefs at A La Provence show discipline in their commitment to classic French recipes as well as to how they source ingredients; they use only natural organic beef, domestic veal and lamb from Marcho Farms or Strauss Farms, locally grown organic produce, and fish and shellfish brought fresh daily from Southern Seafood. Using these meats, they craft a gallery of traditional French- and European-American fusion dishes, relying on precise recipes rather than just carving steaks into the shape of Napoleon's face. They showcase their talent and creativity through a nightly changing amuse-bouche, a bite-size appetizer that servers ferry to tables before the main dinner. They follow this introduction with French classics such as rack of lamb, duck confit, and filet mignon. At lunch, they prepare salmon and rainbow trout with sides such as herb risotto and garlic haricots verts. The aromas of these dishes and international wines fill the stone-tiled dining room, where walls are hung with mirrors in gilded frames, delicate sconces, floral displays, and oil paintings of tree-lined French streets.
