What You'll Get
Restaurants offer diners both a delicious reprieve from the kitchen and a secure environment that makes it virtually impossible for the dish to run away with the spoon. Keep your eating implements obedient with today’s Groupon for bistro cuisine, wine, and desserts at Bistro 536 in Mount Pleasant. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get $30 worth of bistro fare for dinner.
- For $6, you get $12 worth of bistro fare for lunch.
Set in a cozy atmosphere of dark-stained wood, Bistro 536 serves up both American– and Scottish–inspired cuisine with more than 30 wine options ($5–$10/glass, $19–$39/bottle) for pairing. The new dinner menu features novel gustatory phenomena such as the grilled salmon, perched atop a risotto cake and grilled zucchini, then topped with roasted-red-pepper pesto cream ($17). Those searching for stalwart flavor veterans can anchor incisors into a traditional bouillabaisse of shrimp, grouper, scallops, and clams swimming in a white wine saffron broth and reaching for a french-baguette life preserver ($18).
The lunch menu sneak-attacks unsuspecting taste buds during their afternoon nap with surprising takes on old favorites, such as the fried-green-tomato BLT made with pesto aioli and applewood-smoked bacon ($8.50), or the homemade mac 'n' cheese, festooned with sautéed beef tips, mushrooms, tomatoes, and wilted spinach ($8.50).

About Bistro 536
Inside the kitchen at Bistro 536, head chef Alastair Nairn and sous chef Michael Rogers craft updated versions of American cuisine that change with the seasons. In a feature on ABC 4's Lowcountry Live!, Nairn explained that his Scottish roots surface in his cooking, whether it's in a blue crab pot pie or classic plates of fish and chips. Low lights and dark woods in the dining room wrap diners in a cozy embrace, inviting soft conversation amid the flickering table candles and wall sconces as radiant as a 5-year old that correctly spelled "sconces". While the menu changes regularly throughout the year, past specialties have included beef medallions with truffled red potatoes, bacon-wrapped scallops, and prosciutto-wrapped salmon with sundried tomato-pesto cream.
