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 $5, you get $10 worth of café fare at Bluestem Bistro in Manhattan.

Within its naturally lit brick confines, Bluestem Bistro handcrafts its menu of soups, breads, and pastries from scratch without the malevolent influence of preservatives. Local products are meshed and melded to produce sandwiches and wraps ($6.59–$6.89) such as the turkey on focaccia smeared with red-pepper aioli ($6.89), which longs to be raised to the mouth in a salute of gastronomic gratitude. Salads ($6.49–$6.99) and specialty dishes such as spinach lasagna ($6.59) pair freely with a lineup of coffees, teas, and fresh fruit smoothies (nonalcoholic drinks $1.35–$4.80).

Beer, wine, and coffee liqueurs (alcoholic drinks $2.75–$5.25) can be taken on the wooden patio amid the warm glow of candlelight and similarly sedate friends. Pop in on Tuesday mornings from 9:30 a.m. through 10 a.m. for a kid-friendly Sing-A-Long with Mr. Steve, or treat your ears to more advanced melodies during the Sunday jazz brunch, which begins at 11 a.m.
