What You'll Get
France has graciously loaned three things to America: flag colors, Gerard Depardieu, and words with a silent but deadly x. Experience culinary contributions from across the Atlantic with today's deal. For $15, you get $30 worth of French fare from Bistro 39 in Alhambra. Grab lunch Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., or stop in for dinner six nights a week from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. (5 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays). Bistro 39 is closed on Mondays.
Bistro 39 delivers artistically garnished plates worthy of being tacked to the wall, if only your body's aesthetic urge to interior decorate outweighed its evolutionary desire to gobble up delicious things. Starters such as escargot Bourgogne ($8), Dungeness crab cakes ($8), and classic lobster bisque ($9) provide an opportunity to inform your first selection from Bistro 39's extensive beer and wine list. Main plates hail from salty seas and diverse terrains with options including sautéed lemon-garlic tiger shrimp on a bed of angel-hair pasta ($17) or seared duck with Grand Marnier reduction ($24). The Statue of Liberty's torch is surprisingly small, but the bistro's crème brûlée ($6) leaves American mouths agape with awe.
Escort an old flame or add kindling to a sparking romance at Bistro 39's elegant, relaxed space. Sidewalk patio seating is available for diners who prefer to let Mother Nature provide mood lighting as they do the talking in the crisp night air. With reasonably priced French fare and an experienced, well-trained serving staff that specializes in timely wine pairings or one-liners, Bistro 39 delivers the sophistication of a monocle with the practicality and boldness of confidently strapped sport goggles.
This Groupon is not valid with Bistro 39's happy hour.
- A genuine French bistro where Chinese dim sum rules, Bistro 39 is an attractive eatery on Alhambra’s main drag, with white linen-topped tables and artsy photographs of Paris lining the walls.
- The food is always fresh, prepared with flair and the portions generous by French cuisine standards. – daniels4618, Zagat
- Everything we've tried there is excellent - the croque madame sandwich, braised lamb shank, duck l'orange, escargot, onion soup, but there are two things that stand out as exceptional: the braised short ribs and foie gras. – Donnie H., Yelp
