What You'll Get
France has graciously loaned three things to America: flag colors, Gérard Depardieu, and words with a silent but deadly x. Savor stolen French flavors with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of French-American cuisine and drinks at Chez Daniel in Bloomington.
At Chez Daniel, patrons can wine and dine dates amid an elegant setting while finally having an excuse to wear the powdered wigs they stole from British magistrates. A varied wine list pairs fragrant palate potions such as the King Estate pinot noir ($8) and Estancia chardonnay ($6.50) with the expertly prepared dishes on Chez Daniel’s dinner menu. Hors d’oeuvres such as escargot de Bourgogne ($10) and seared scallops with morel mushrooms and blood-orange cream ($11) loosen up taste buds, much like a limber Richard Simmons doused in seasoning. From there, soothe belly tremors with entrees such as the rack of lamb with Provençal herbs and ratatouille ($31), roast duck smothered in raspberry-orange sauce ($30), and oven-roasted halibut with vegetable risotto and orange-ginger salsa ($31)—all of which are served with vegetables (pasta dishes exclude vegetables) and your choice of the soup of the day or the house salad.
Unlike tagging along with an elephant-riding J. Peterman on South Asian excursions, Chez Daniel offers a convenient opportunity to sample international cuisine without excessive exposure to bizarre banter. Boasting exposed brick, lofty archways, and elaborately adorned tables, Chez Daniel offers an inviting atmosphere that is more elegant than a tablecloth woven from Charlemagne’s beard. Reservations are recommended, so call to secure a table.

About Chez Daniel
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.
