What You'll Get
Because bistros originated in France, many Americans mistakenly assume that they are pretentiously fancy, rude to customers, and infested with over-amorous cartoon skunks. Shatter these misconceptions with today's casual-minded Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of New American cuisine and drinks at Boulevard Bistro in Seminole.
As you get ready to play palate-poker with Boulevard Bistro's menu, ante-up with an appetizer of one dozen of the steamed mussels, which are simmered in a chipotle cream sauce ($8.25), or the bistro's famous lavash and bean dip ($2) with crispy flatbread. From there, circumvent light appetites with a BLT pizza ($8.95), topped with applewood-smoked bacon, fresh tomatoes, and spring greens atop garlic ginger aioli, or plow directly into hunger with a mighty bistro French dip ($8.95)—slow-roasted sirloin shaved and stuffed into an asiago ciabatta bun served au jus and with a choice of spicy potato hash, french fries, coleslaw, or smoky chipotle baked beans. The wild mushroom steak Diane ($22.95) comes accompanied by parsley garlic potatoes and a bistro or Caesar salad and will find a leggy, sensual tango partner in the Wild Horse cabernet sauvignon ($9.50 glass/$38 bottle) from Boulevard Bistro's extensive wine list. Finally, give your carnivorous comedy an appropriately happy Hollywood ending with a dessert of iced lemon pound cake ($3.95) or homemade chocolate fudge brownie ($4.95).
Boulevard's casual dining atmosphere and family-friendly environment make its customers feel right at home, but not at home enough to start taking off their hairpieces. And the dog-friendly outdoor dining area accommodates not only people, but also the bulldog that refuses to let go of their arm. Whether you're courting a date or just chilling with the fam, today's Groupon to Boulevard Bistro treats them to a delicious dinner that won't require them to don their formal tuxedo T-shirt.

- This bistro is easy to miss, hiding behind trees and umbrellas at a busy intersection, but the inside is cool and cheery. The menu changes from time to time, and the new items are always a little different from the Florida standard. – Gayot
