Eating international fare locally eliminates the woes associated with transatlantic travel, such as jet lag and oar splinters. Stamp your palate’s passport with today’s Groupon: for $19, you get a Latin fusion meal for two at Clos Bistro & Café (up to a $39 total value). The meal includes the following:
- Two soups or sides (up to a $4.50 value each).
- Two entrees (up to a $12 value each).
- Two nonalcoholic drinks (up to a $3 value each).
Argentinean entrees, Spanish tapas, and Latin American–inspired dishes unite on Clos Bistro & Café’s menu, an international summit of unique café cuisine. After trudging through thick mashed potatoes, forks pass the torch to spoons, which elegantly swan dive into cauldrons of soup de jour or homemade chicken-vegetable brew. Rotating entree specials keep diners on their toes, and mainstays such as oven-roasted short ribs please palates on a regular basis, like the flaky layers of a crescent moon. Ham, tomato sauce, and cheese accessorize breaded, fried steak in the napolitana-style milanesa, and steamy beverages such as cappuccino and hot chocolate thaw tongues throughout the meal. An eclectic fleet of mirrors reflects the eatery’s stone-tile floors, glass-enclosed counter, and collection of wine bottles, which dangle from the ceiling to catch molecules of evaporating merlot.
Clos Bistro & Café
From daily empanada specials to tapas and oven-roasted entrees, Clos Bistro & Café incorporates international flavors to make breakfasts and dinners a global experience. Argentinean influences take the form of strong coffee that complements hearty breakfasts of smoked-salmon omelets and pastries, and evenings are fueled by daily pasta specials, verdant salads, and flank steaks fresh from the oven. Located downtown, the bistro's sleek storefront hides a cozy interior with a wall of mirrors that send light shining across tiled floors and provide ample opportunities to whisper compliments at your reflection.
