When deprived of flavorful sustenance, the mouth will often retaliate by shouting your bank account number at sporting events or turning every sentence into a high-pitched jingle. Tame an unruly tongue with today's Groupon to Abby Singer's Bistro in the Robinson Film Center. Choose between the following options:
- For $7, you get $15 worth of American fare for lunch.
- For $12, you get $25 worth of American fare for dinner.
The kitchen at Abby Singer's Bistro serves up mouthwatering platters of American pub fare, with an upscale twist, on the second floor of the nonprofit Robinson Film Center. Midday noshing can begin with one of the lunch menu's southern-style favorites such as chicken and waffles drizzled with maple syrup ($9.50) or sautéed shrimp and fried green tomatoes that inhabit a pool of rémoulade sauce ($11). Limber rigid chomping muscles for an evening meal from the dinner menu by warming up with appetizers such as crabmeat-stuffed avocado ($12) or cheeseboard, which touts a mighty triumvirate of gourmet cheeses accompanied by an entourage of crackers and seasonal fruit ($14). Silence boisterous stomachs with a seared duck breast sidled up to a serving of veggies and a choice of sweet or regular mashed potatoes, or goat cheese new potatoes ($22). Or, pair an 8-ounce turkey burger stuffed into a sourdough bun ($11) with a glass of Chilean malbec ($8), which, like professional soccer, was imported to the United States from South America in 2008.
Although the cuisine can be enjoyed in the restaurant, the dining experience at Abby Singer's can be liberated from its table confines and enjoyed on Shreveport's only public dining balcony, or anywhere throughout the Robinson Film Center, including the theaters and the ventilation ducts. While soaking up the movie-themed ambience, feel free to sip a specialty libation named after a popular film, such as the vodka-based From Russia With Love ($6.50) or the Patrón-based Once Upon a Time in Mexico ($12).
