Though its appearance resembles that of a tortilla, a crêpe is never made of corn and never used as the liner of a sombrero. Celebrate France’s flatbread and Mediterranean creations with today's Groupon: for $9, you get $20 worth of Mediterranean fare at Chit Chat Bistro, located in Arvada.
Chit Chat Bistro lets soul-searching tongues sample a wide-ranging menu before setting off on solo backpacking trips across the Mediterranean. Starters such as the simple bruschetta ($6) ease forks vegetable territory, while main events such as the tzatziki-laced gyro Greek wrap ($8 at lunch; $10 at dinner) can be enjoyed while wearing traditional Greek garb, such as togas or screen-printed T-shirts calling for Socrates’s immediate release. Apples, walnuts, and goat cheese join up with fresh veggies to create the Deco salad ($8), and a sweet-and-savory crêpe collection ($6.50+ at lunch; $8.50+ at dinner) folds up French flavors such as ham and cheese or Nutella and bananas. Chit Chat’s friendly, relaxing atmosphere makes it an ideal spot to bring first dates, and the weekday lunch buffet ($7.95) and Sunday-brunch spread ($8.95) caters to off-season competitive eaters looking for a quiet spot to train.
Chit Chat Bistro
Chef Niko spreads a thin layer of crepe batter over a hot griddle, then stuffs the thin pancakes with sweet and savory ingredients to serve alongside spit-roasted gyro wraps. He loads up plates with saganaki, pan-fried kasseri cheese, and paninis stuffed with brie, fig jam, and prosciutto, which are soon delivered to diners listening to live entertainment.
Each Sunday, chef Niko stocks the brunch buffet with appetizers such as grilled pita bread and hummus, as well as entrees such as made-to-order crepes filled with Nutella and topped with fresh fruit and whipped cream. While sipping steaming mugs of Illy coffee, patrons can gather around the fire pit on the outdoor patio to tell eerie stories of long-removed menu items appearing on the chef’s nightstand at midnight.
