What You'll Get
Bistros are remarkable in that they somehow manage to be both fancy and casual at the same time, much like a necktie with Taz on it. Feel gussied up without too much fuss with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Creole cuisine at Black & Gold Bistro in Metairie.
Black & Gold Bistro's flavor-slinging cuisiniers sate hungry hoards with a menu brimming with authentic Creole fare. Appease grumbling stomach gnomes with an ambrosial appetizer of shrimp beignets with raspberry-pepper jelly ($7) or eggplant sticks ($6). Entrees include a selection of pastas ($10), an array of seafood spreads—such as the pecan-crusted catfish meunière ($11)—and a chicken-and-sausage jambalaya ($8). Or opt for a hearty po' boy sandwich, which cooks can craft using your choice of beef, catfish, shrimp, or oysters ($7-$11). A side of homemade onion rings bolsters banquets and doubles as props for impeccable Mr. Magoo impersonations ($2).
Like Saint Peter's celestial man cave, Black & Gold Bistro's cozy dining room boasts New Orleans's team colors, lending it a vibrant yet relaxed vibe, perfect for meals with co-workers or dates with foam-finger fanatics.
