One of the great simple pleasures of traveling abroad is stumbling upon a restaurant frequented by locals, followed closely by bathing in gelato and loudly explaining why everything in America is better. Replicate that feeling with today’s Groupon to Bath City Bistro in Mount Clemens. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get $20 worth of bistro fare for dinner.
- For $4, you get $8 worth of bistro fare for lunch, plus one hour of feather bowling.
The culinary savants at Bath City Bistro whip up a menu of swanky, scratch-made bistro fare served amid the historic environs of Mount Clemens's old mineral-bathhouse district. Evening stomach stuffing begins with appetizers such as a tub of mussels served either scampi style or wallowing in a taste-bud-tingling red sauce ($7.99). Then munch on entrees such as the ground-sirloin dinner smothered in brandy-peppercorn-mushroom sauce ($9.99), or wrap a fork around pasta dishes such as the seafood pasta, in which sautéed shrimp, calamari, and fresh mussels swim through creamy alfredo, spicy marinara, or palomino sauce ($14.99), allowing diners the privilege of sampling the flavors of the sea without the hassle of snatching Poseidon's lunchbox.
Lighter meals sate midday cravings for sustenance with a tuna, turkey, or ham half sandwich and cup of soup ($5.99) or a personal pizza and antipasto salad ($6.99). Shun the wisdom of waiting 30 minutes after eating before moving by partaking in a rousing game of feather bowling, a traditional Belgian game that combines the most alluring attributes of bowling, bocce, and full-contact shuffleboard, as players roll wooden disks down a lengthy lane and attempt to land them as close as possible to the feather at the other end. Within the comfy confines of the restaurant featuring design modeled after turn-of-the-century Mount Clemens architecture and exhibiting the building's original brick and wood, patrons can feast eyeballs on photographs highlighting the history of the Bath City mineral-bathhouse district.
