Many American bistros differentiate themselves from their European counterparts by serving region-specific dishes and replacing waiters with Bruce Springsteen. Satisfy a hungry heart with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of bistro dinner fare and drinks at Coral Room.
The chefs at Coral Room sate dinnertime cravings with a menu of bistro-style fare concocted from a mix of local and organic ingredients. Inside the contemporary eatery with mirror-lined walls or under cloud animals on the patio, diners can dip into the meal experience with appetizers such as coconut-tempura white prawns dunked in szechuan peanut sauce ($10) or Prince Edward Island mussels with garlic-infused sake ($12). Small plates include half an orange-glazed cornish hen with shoestring potatoes ($14), and full-size entrees invite full-size biceps to lift forkfuls of sesame salmon soaked in house teriyaki and sided by asparagus and wasabi whipped potatoes ($19). Wash down savories with a slurp of white wine ($7+/glass), a cocktail ($6–$10), or the melted remnants of an ice bust. Any dish can be vegetarianized with a tofu substitute and the blessing of the Jolly Green Giant.
