What You'll Get
While music is known to soothe the savage beast, a well-cooked dinner will teach it enough etiquette to become a posh London socialite. Test the taming powers of song and satiation with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of fusion cuisine and drinks at Bistro 135 Jazz Lounge and Restaurant.
Serving up a synthesis of American and European cuisine with a casual vibe, Bistro 135 Jazz Lounge and Restaurant treats customers to a multisensory dining experience with its schedule of nightly jazz soundtracks and eclectic menu. Salivation-inducing starters range from the creamy lobster risotto, made with four ounces of chopped tail meat and asiago cheese ($14), to the savory pair of lamb lollipops ($12), which require hundreds of licks or significantly less mastication to reach the mint-marinated center. Internationally enticing entrees offer edible vacations with warm dishes of gnocchi pomodoro served with a fresh tomato-and-basil sauce and portobello mushrooms ($20) and savory forkfuls of slow-braised beef short ribs ($26) or blackened scallops under a blood-orange reduction ($28). The lounge's wine list compiles a mass of culinary companions to complement courses with a smooth glass of Two Vine merlot ($8) or a crisp bottle of Cono cabernet ($28).
The funky colors, eclectic artwork, and candle-lit tables complement the jazzy food, and East Rochester piano and sax addicts feast their ossicles on the divine sounds of local performers, including the house-favorite Jazz Dawgs. Patrons can enjoy their evening by the spacious bar's built-in fireplace, swanky wooden liquor cabinets, and wisecracking animatronic bartenders, or, in nonfrigid months, take a seat shaded by trees in the brick-paved outdoor patio.
- A jazz lounge and restaurant located in East Rochester? Implausible though that may sound, it's true. And a welcome addition it is. – Vincenzo S., Yelp, 7/24/08
- Always a treat when we can go to Bistro! Haven't had a dish I was disappointed in yet and I try something different every time. Always a winner. Great service and friendly atmosphere. – OpenTable reviewer who dined on 1/14/2011

About Bistro 135
The soft sounds of live jazz flow through a low-lit restaurant, easing guests into a comfortable state as the aroma of grilled steak and seared fish fills the air. It's just another night at Bistro 135, a multi-level space that hosts local musicians throughout the week on a balcony stage, who spice up the atmosphere as diners savor a fusion of international and American cuisines. Pairs can share blackened jumbo scallops and manchurian cauliflower at high-top tables in the bar area and enjoy their meals in the cozy outdoor courtyard to soak in the warm weather or surprise eclipses.
