What You'll Get
Growling stomachs can hamper stealth operations, spoil belly dances, and, in extreme cases, induce dogs to attack. Quiet whimpering tummy tones with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of French cuisine at Capers Brasserie & Wine Bar in Belleville.
Capers' chef brings a contemporary approach to classic French technique and populates the lunch and dinner menus with locally sourced meat entrees, seafood, and desserts. The fixed-price dinner menu ($34) stars an ensemble of three courses, an appetizer, main course, and dessert. Alternately, the chefs can create a spontaneous menu catered to your preferences ($45 for three courses, $65 with wine pairings). On the individual-priced menu, garlic-and-lemon dressing pours over romaine lettuce to create the Capers caesar salad ($9), and horseradish sauce and red-bliss tomatoes accompany wild sockeye salmon in singing operatic arias ($23). Meanwhile, chefs hand cut dry-aged AAA strip loin, cook the meat to the desired temperature, then dress the 8-ounce steak with the latest runway fashions: smoked cheese curds, green peppercorn, and a handbag of fries ($25). For dessert, caramel hardens on top of rich custard to make crème brûlée ($7.50). Edibles pair with a variety of the sommelier-selected libations that helped Capers win a Wine Spectator award. Diners can also warm up at a wood fireplace, sip martinis at the bar, or rhythmically somersault to Capers' occasional live performances.
