Bistros are remarkable in that they somehow manage to be both fancy and casual at the same time, much like a necktie with Taz on it. Feel gussied up without too much fuss with this Groupon.
$15 for $30 Worth of Italian-Inspired Cuisine and Drinks

Though called the American Bistro, this restaurant takes every effort to evoke a rustic meal on the Mediterranean. Sun-washed frescoes of the Italian countryside cover the dining-room walls and plates of hearty Italian pastas and entrees fill the linen-covered tables. Seafood entrees incorporate a mélange of fresh catches, such as clams and lobster tail, and pastas come coated in a rainbow of sauces ranging from zesty marinara to verdant pesto to cream vodka. At the enclosed bar, wine glasses glitter before filling with red and white varietals and clinking to toast a recent escape from a haunted mansion.
