What You'll Get
Paris, France is widely considered the capital of romance and gourmet cuisine, whereas Paris, Tennessee is home to a newly constructed Frisbee-golf course. Combine leisure and gourmet with today's brunchtime Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of brunch at Anis Café & Bistro in Buckhead. Brunch is served every Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Anis Café & Bistro takes its diners on a trip to Southern France with Provençal versions of Mediterranean-inspired cuisine and the cozy setting of a French cottage. Although Anis serves dinner and lunch, today's Groupon is for the recently added Sunday brunch. Beret-bearing specialties include the cured-salmon croque monsieur with sweet tomato, soft goat cheese, roasted Bermuda onion, and capers ($11). Eggs get their moment in the pan with the three-egg omelette, a fluffy sleeping bag of scrambled oeufs stuffed with your choice of fillings such as asparagus, broccolini, tomatoes, artichokes, portabello mushrooms, sausage, chicken, and prosciutto ($12). Shellfish open up to compassionate brunchers with the Moules Marinières, mussels in white wine, garlic, parsley, and cream ($11). Carnivorous connoisseurs can make it a meatier midmorning with the steak frites–– grilled bistro steak with sauce au poivre, french fries, and baby greens ($17). For a sweet ending or scrumptious main course, Anis also serves the Parisian favorite Nutella crêpes, filled with bananas, Nutella, and toasted almonds ($8). Anis is cocooned in a converted house that has been renovated to reflect the atmosphere of a homey restaurant in the South of France. With exposed brick, warm lighting, and an eclectic collection of art adorning the attractively hued walls, Anis is a romantic destination for couples and their oblivious third wheels. The bistro also boasts a tree-shaded outdoor patio that is open to dining and ennui relishing year-round.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reviewed Anis Café & Bistro, and OpenTable reviewers give it a 4.2-star average. Eighty-seven percent of more than 150 Urbanspooners recommend the restaurant, and Yelpers give it an average of four stars.
- What you can’t do is have an altogether bad meal…most of what you’ll experience here, from its tidy wine list to its odd, ad hoc atmosphere, is delightfully enjoyable. – Meridith Ford Goldman, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
- Love the eclectic atmosphere, and the food is consistently very good. Service is timely without being overbearing. – OpenTable reviewer who dined on 09/30/2010
