Unlike watching cinematic love scenes, food can be enjoyed in the company of parents without embarrassment. Dodge future moments of uneasiness with today's Groupon: for $35, you get $75 worth of European-style bistro fare at Café Rouge Bistro in Sanford.
Café Rouge sprinkles worldly charm all over its selection of salads, sandwiches, and house-made entrees. Culinary concoctions, such as a warm poached egg and crispy bacon salad ($9) and olive-oil-baked garlic and chili shrimp ($10), prepare flavor savorers for main dishes, including crispy salmon on sautéed asparagus with lemon and tarragon mayonnaise ($17), and shrimp and scallops over honey Sriracha fettuccine ($17). Just like the young substitute French teacher, Café Rouge is upscale and European, but at the same time, laid-back and soothing.
- Hand-cut chips, snappy peas and caramelized lemons had us marveling that this was quite possibly the best fish and chips we’ve enjoyed in the greater Orlando area. – Faiyaz Kara, Orlando Weekly
- Friendly atmosphere, excellent food. Really enjoyed and will go again. Great shepherd's pie! – sfischer, Urbanspoon
