Coco Chocolate Lounge & Bistro - Far North Central: $15 for $30 Worth of French Fare at Coco Chocolate Lounge & Bistro

After he took the throne, Napoleon instituted the tradition of serving bread with every meal to put his mother's baguette-heavy care packages to use. Indulge in French tradition with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of contemporary French fare at Coco Chocolate Lounge & Bistro.

Chef Ehyab "Happy" Hatab harnesses his talent for gastronomy to cleverly recreate traditional French bistro dishes, helping Coco Chocolate Lounge earn the title of best neighborhood restaurant in 2011 by the San Antonio Express News. Fig and feta frolic within the crisp confines of a golden tart, topped with peppery arugula and a balsamic port reduction ($8), while the stone-baked thin-crust Moulin Rouge pizza, crowned like Italian royalty with sun-dried tomatoes and fresh mozzarella ($10), cancans into waiting mouths. Diners can also reward worthy forks with a sampling of seared scallop with charred corn, leeks, and bacon in an Armagnac sauce ($22). Mussels and fries ($16) play Marco Polo in white wine and garlic sauce, and Texas aged beef filet receives a dusting of cocoa before being inspected by an amateur detective and paired with fingerling potatoes ($19.50 / 6 oz. steak).

The red walls of the restaurant's romantic dining space create an intimate atmosphere, accented by plush burgundy couches and dramatic chandeliers. Although customers must make a reservation before 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, after 10:30, live entertainment melodiously wafts in from the nightclub area, inviting sated diners for a digestion-aiding spin around the dimly lit dance floor. Chef Happy, who trained under famed chefs such as Marcus Samuelsson and Daniel Boulud, keeps the stove lit until 11 p.m. on weekdays and midnight on weekends, ensuring that night owls can fill stomach vacancies with something other than errant moonbeams.

Coco Chocolate Lounge

Coco Chocolate Lounge has more to offer than just chocolate. That's why readers of the San Antonio Express-News voted the spot Best Neighborhood Restaurant and Best Nightclub in North Central San Antonio in 2011. Though there are plentiful cacao-based desserts served, including single-origin chocolate mousse and chocolate fondue with housemade marshmallows, Chef Hector Villarreal also experiments with savory dishes. Among his creations are stone-baked pizzas topped with house-smoked brisket and venison steaks with fried okra and béarnaise sauce.

The cuisine complements decor the San Antonio Express-News called “scrumptious with plenty of chandeliers, candlelight, and plush ruby-red velvet booths and bar seating.” As the sky darkens and everybody throws away sundials that seemed cool during the day, Coco Chocolate Lounge transitions into a nightclub, and chocolate martinis, wine, and champagne flow more freely. DJs on a dance floor and an outdoor patio spin Latin music, hip-hop, and club hits until 2:30 a.m.
