France has graciously loaned three things to America: flag colors, Gerard Depardieu, and words with a silent but deadly x. Raise a glass to its generosity with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of French cuisine at Chloé Bistrot. This Groupon is not valid for Wednesday's special prix fixe menu or Sunday's wine special.
Chef Laurent Gabrel, of Voilà! in Madison Valley, crafts Chloé Bistrot's classic French menu to imitate the eateries found along Parisian cobblestone streets. Begin a culinary getaway with an appetizer of escargots dressed in garlic-butter sauce atop baguette crostini ($12), before donning taste-bud hiking boots for a trek to succulent entrées. Twine fork tines into a pan-seared beef medallion with green-peppercorn sauce and classic fries ($23), or indulge in mussels in a tomato, garlic, and fresh-thyme broth, an elegant mollusk alternative to Fabergé clams ($14). An amply stocked wine list joins bites and sips in mouthwatering matrimony with an array of French vintages ($7–$12). Guests may reach a chic dinner's finish line with a serving of rich chocolate mousse ($7), ice-cream-filled profiteroles ($9), or a celebratory fist pump.
Chloé Bistrot’s chic confines aim to imitate the sights, scents, and tastes of an authentic Parisian restaurant. Dark-chocolate walls mimic rich desserts, plush benches nod to French wines, and frites successfully impersonate french fries. Bask in the light from large picture windows atop a burgundy-hued banquette, or take to a dark wooded chair for mealtime je ne sais quoi practice.
