Bistros are remarkable in that they somehow manage to be both fancy and casual at the same time, much like a necktie with Taz on it. Feel gussied up without too much fuss with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of seasonal dishes and specialty drinks at Chinched Bistro.
Chinched Bistro serves contemporary bistro fare made from scratch, using classic ingredients with a contemporary twist. Its menu of seasonal dishes includes current culinary creations such as pan-seared hanger steak with barley risotto, bone-marrow jus, and crispy onions ($27) and a raft of flatbread bearing a cargo of roasted sweet potatoes, caramelized onions, and goat cheese ($25). For the bowl-inclined consumer, the sweet-onion bisque with salt-cod hush puppy and Tabasco crema will both satisfy circular desires and provide a porcelain helmet for impromptu noodle jousting ($9). Chinched also features specialty house cocktails with local berries and liquor, as well as exclusive brews from local microbrewery Quidi Vidi. Patrons enjoy their handcrafted cuisine amid Chinched's modern decor, with black painted woods and swine-themed paintings and sculptures.
