What You'll Get
Bistros became popular in America after French diplomats visiting the Continental Congress insisted on dining outdoors, breaking Ben Franklin’s time-saving custom of eating while sleeping in the shower. Celebrate history with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of upscale bistro fare at Bistro 135 Jazz Lounge & Restaurant in East Rochester.
Five nights a week, live jazz permeates the softly lit, casually elegant atmosphere of Bistro 135 Jazz Lounge & Restaurant. An impressive menu of modern dishes commences with appetizers such as the sashimi-grade ahi-tuna poke salad ($12) and jumbo-lump crab cakes that follow a stringent buddy system, arriving in pairs with a creole rémoulade ($9). The New Zealand rack of lamb, marinated and grilled, sports cilantro-mint vinaigrette and an accompaniment of garlic mashed potations and vegetables ($33), and the Atlantic salmon pan sears in a jamaican jerk rub sidled next to fried potato and corn hash with mango salsa ($21). An outdoor patio encourages guests to sup on a succulent 14-ounce new york strip steak crusted in porcini mushrooms and brown sugar ($27) in the open air in order for its savory aroma to appease the cloud regents above.

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.
