What You'll Get
You're probably thinking, "That sounds great, but I've never bought a car or a computer without first reading the Wikipedia definitions for car and computer—I'm not about to buy a Groupon either without a briefing." Well neither would we, and since this is everyone's first Groupon, allow us to briefly explain how it works.
How Groupon Works
Groupon is a combination of the words group and coupon. Each day, we offer an unbeatable deal on the best of Tampa: restaurants, spas, sporting events, theater, and more. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won't find anywhere else. We call it "collective buying power"!
If you want to get the deal, just click BUY before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people (20 for today's deal) sign up by the end of the day, you'll get a printable gift certificate in your inbox the next morning that you can use whenever you want (well, at least until the deal expires—today's expires in six months). If not enough people join, no one gets the deal (and you won't be charged), so invite your friends to make sure you get the discount!
It's nice to wake up to something new every day. Some people get their daily fix from desk calendars with a cute puppy and a funny caption every morning. Groupon is like a desk calendar, except the puppy is an unbeatable discount and the funny caption is a profound reflection on the flowers and needles growing from life's cactus. We selflessly share our deep insights, hoping that you will join our mob of consumers, thus strengthening our collective buying power and commanding even better deals.
Today's Groupon is your passport to taste inventive French cuisine infused with Mediterranean flavors by a great chef, not by a homemade flavor injectster. For just $25, you get $55 worth of food and drink at Chez Bryce, where the St. Petersburg Times finds “sophistication apparent in every course.”
At the helm of this cozy bistro is chef J. Bryce Whittlesey, a graduate of the prestigious Culinary Institute of America who has a roiling fervor for fresh, quality ingredients and a lesser fervor for those neat chef hats. Stints at several Michelin restaurants (Michel Rostang in Paris, L’Oustau de Baumaniere in Provence, and Hotel Negresco in Nice) undoubtedly influenced his rich and ever-evolving menu.
For starters, try the seared tuna, seasoned with ponzu vinaigrette and served with crunchy wonton chips and herb salad ($10) or the truffled mac-n-cheese, an indulgent take on comfort food ($9). Entrees (from $17 to $33) include beef, vegetable, seafood, and pork. Try the mushroom gnocchi, buttery potato dumplings with oysters that are sweetened with caramelized mushrooms and silky Cippolini onions. Make the most of your Groupon and visit for lunch or brunch.
Chez Bryce’s pastoral décor—inside and out—gives the ambience of a warm cottage in the French countryside. The dining room sports lime crown molding, Provence-style artwork, and cozy tables, while the popular outdoor patio has a fountain and often live entertainment.
