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 $7, you get $15 worth of bistro fare and drinks at Café de Paris in Louisville. Café de Paris assembles an international menu of paninis, bagels, crêpes, and more made from fresh, organic ingredients. Quench your thirst buds with freshly brewed Novo coffee, more than 50 kinds of organic tea, a glass of wine, or a somewhat self-defeating colander of beer. Gallic gourmands, meanwhile, can start their morning in francophone fashion with the Paris crêpe (Nutella, strawberry coulis, and whipped cream; $5.99). If you'd rather forget Paris and its accident-prone police inspectors, the Sevilla burrito bursts with eggs, potatoes, chilies, onions, and cilantro, and comes with a shot glass of organic green-chili sauce on the side ($6.49). The Old World charmer keeps the atmosphere strictly Champs-Élysées with live music, gratis WiFi, and a street terrace affording breathtaking views of the Arc de Triomphe (on clear days).
Cafe de Paris
Baristas at Cafe de Paris brew Novo coffee fresh for each cup and steep more than 50 different kinds of organic loose-leaf tea from International Tea Importers, filling the café with rich aromas transported inside a soft haze of steam idly spiraling through the air. Sipping microbrewed masala chai tea with pressed ginger between bites of sweet and savory crepes, panini sandwiches, and regular or gluten-free bagels, patrons may browse the Internet inside the café or listen to live jazz music and indie rock performances during weekly events. Outside on the terrace, lined with umbrella-topped tables, diners clink glasses of French wine or craft beers during nightly happy hours while strains of music linger in the background.
