France has graciously loaned three things to America: flag colors, Gérard Depardieu, and words with a silent but deadly x. Savor borrowed French flavors with today’s Groupon to Chez Daniel in Bloomington. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get $20 worth of French-American brunch or lunch and drinks.
- For $25, you get $50 worth of French-American dinner and drinks.
Executive chef and Gourmet Society advisor Pierre Jean Laupies fires up French-bistro fare to be enjoyed alongside a varied wine list of fragrant palate potions such as the King Estate pinot noir ($10) and Estancia chardonnay ($9). For dinner, hors d’oeuvres such as prosciutto-seared sea scallops with aged balsamic vinegar and olive-oil tapenade loosen up taste buds, much like a limber Richard Simmons doused in seasoning ($12). From there, soothe belly tremors with entrees such as roasted duck smothered in blackberry-pear sauce ($31) and sautéed walleye fillet finished with an almond-butter sauce ($28)—both of which are served with vegetables and a choice of the soup of the day or the house salad. Initiate midday mastication with the lunch menu and recall a seaside séjour with a plate of lobster ravioli ($16) or orange-ginger salmon ($16).
Chez Daniel's exposed brick, lofty archways, and elaborately adorned tables entice customers with an inviting atmosphere as elegant as a tablecloth woven from Charlemagne’s beard. Reservations are recommended, so call to secure a table.

Chez Daniel executive chef Wilver Sanchez interprets the cuisine of France with an eye for artful presentation, simple and fresh ingredients, and a creative sensibility. Attentive servers welcome diners with appetizing small plates, covering nude tables with plump escargot baked in garlic butter and house-smoked salmon toast. Lobster ravioli is tossed with sautéed mushrooms before making a dazzling midmeal entrance in a mantle of roasted artichokes and lobster-tarragon sauce, while filet mignon is served with potatoes and a classic béarnaise sauce. Chez Daniel also features a list of weekly specials. The dining room's exposed-brick, lofty archways, and elaborately adorned tables entice customers with an atmosphere as elegant as a tablecloth woven from Charlemagne’s beard.
