European fare is known to resemble the shape of its countries of origin, whether it be Italy's boot-shaped pennes or Greece's archipelago-like sushi sliders. Gobble modern versions of Old World wonders with today’s Groupon at Café Croissant and Bakery in midtown. Choose between two options:
- $15 for $30 worth of dinner fare Wednesdays through Sundays, 5 p.m.–9 p.m.
- $7 for $15 worth of breakfast and lunch fare Mondays through Fridays 7 a.m.–3 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays 8 a.m.–3 p.m.
Café Croissant and Bakery is a family-owned restaurant and baked-goods bonanza that serves up European-inspired culinary creations and freshly baked goodies for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Afternoon noshers can anchor appetites with an extensive lunch menu, starting with the chicken potpie ($12) or the hearty French dip sandwich with au jus ($14). A gourmet benedict like the benny under the sea feeds the landlocked a feast of Alaskan smoked salmon, sliced avocado, and red onion ($14), forming a foodie lifesaver that prevents empty stomachs from capsizing.
As you peruse the gourmet dinner menu, clobber your appetite with calamari with house-made marinara ($12). The almond-crusted asiago chicken arrives pan-seared, drizzled with buerre blanc, and joined by red potatoes and asparagus ($17.50). Green-eating grazers and calorie counters alike can choose from several lighter, meat-free options such as the spinach quiche ($12) or apple blue-cheese salad ($13). Conclude your meal with a gourmet coffee drink or rich dessert, such as the classic crème brûlée ($5), or tango with a flirtatious tipple from Café Croissant and Bakery's extensive beer and wine lists.
