Bread is strong enough to fortify flimsy food pyramids, yet gentle enough to hug lonely condiments in a warm embrace. Cultivate a culinary cornerstone with today's Groupon to Astrid & Stephanie Traditional Artisan Bakery in Miami Beach. Choose between the following options:
- For $21, you get a French fusion lunch for two, including two entrees, two desserts, and two drinks (up to a $46.50 value). Choose from all entrees on the third page of the menu or all bagel sandwiches, salted croissants, and salads.
- For $30, you get a French fusion dinner for two, including two entrees, two desserts, and two drinks (up to a $63.70 value). Choose from all entrees on the second page of the menu.
The two passionate pastry chefs at Astrid & Stephanie blend French and Argentinean flavors into eclectic café fare and desserts. For lunch, pairs of patrons can choose sandwiches such as the Chivito from Uruguay (a $11.90 value), which stamps its bread passport with layers of tenderloin beef before toothy customs inspectors tear apart its ham, egg, and mozzarella baggage in search of contraband Tickle Me Elmo dolls. Alternately, opt to browse the dinner menu, where specialty lamb foreshank floats over savory pools of meat moisture on a raft of fried sliced potatoes (a $19.90 value). After either meal, wash down a duo of desserts, such as meringue-topped lemon pie (a $3.85 value) and a slice of the cake of the day (a $3.85 value), with beverages such as piping-hot coffee drinks or tea (a $2.10–$3.90 value for a large). Then duos of diners can sit back to digest as the disparate dishes in their stomachs negotiate carefully worded international treaties for extradition to the small intestine.
