What You'll Get
The French have given the United States many tremendous gifts, such as the Statue of Liberty and the current Statue of Liberty, which subdued the first one after lightning made it evil. Venture through French cooking with today's Groupon from Bistro M in Windsor. Choose from two options:
- For $20, you get $40 worth of traditional French dinner fare.
- For $10, you get $20 worth of lunch or Sunday brunch options.
From the simple, understated confines behind Bistro M's bright French doors, Parisian-born pastry-punchers pound out traditional Gallic gastronomy. Night-shift noshers can cloak themselves in the warm light of the chandeliers while rhapsodizing on inviting entrees such as trout almondine ($16) and braised pork shoulder with butternut-squash gratin ($21). Otherwise, seek pearls and spark plugs amid the raw, barbecue, and Rockefeller shell-meat of the full oyster bar ($1.75 each). Bistro M also assuages mid-afternoon belly temblors with a storehouse of lunch and brunch provisions. Set upon a refined feast with the croque madame's seared ham and fresh fried-egg chapeau ($11), or unmask hunger and robot invaders masquerading as sandwiches with the honesty of the open-faced vegetable and brie tartine ($8).
- The mood turns Gallic as soon as you step into the black-and-white mosaic tiled foyer, framed in tall French pane windows. Stake out a seat at one of two tall tables, or at the six-seat bar. – Carey Sweet, SFGate.com
- its menu is laden with reasonably priced signature favorites at lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch. – Carey Sweet, inside-sonoma.com
