Savory food and wine can rejuvenate bored taste buds, whose humdrum routines revolve around distinguishing sweet from sour, moistening envelope flaps, and falling sleep with their TVs tuned to Everybody Loves Raymond. Distract your palate from daily drudgery with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of food and drink, plus two glasses of house wine, at Bistro 400 in Santa Ana. Lively and inviting, Bistro 400 appeals to both mild and wild mannered crowds with its live music, outdoor patio, and elegant décor. Dine on an eclectic menu of upscale salads, sandwiches, burgers, and specialties atop a white tablecloth in the bistro's brick dining room. Perk up pickle portals with an oven-baked feta cheesecake nestled on a bed of kalamata olives and tomatoes ($9) before savoring pepper-crusted lamb chops with forest mushroom sauce ($16). Two complimentary glasses of house merlot, cabernet, or chardonnay (normally $6) accompany the meal to fend off unwanted advances from the saltshaker. On most Friday and Saturday evenings, diners can stick around for post-feasting nightlife, including live blues, jazz, and DJs.
