What You'll Get
Louisianan cuisine is remarkable in that it somehow manages to be both American and French at the same time, much like the Statue of Liberty, the Atlantic Ocean, and using stale baguettes as doorstops. Enjoy a culinary fusion of Paris and New Orleans with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of fresh New Orleanian and French dinner fare at Eclair Bistro in Cedar Hill. Eclair Bistro is open for dinner Wednesday–Saturday nights from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Eclair Bistro's kitchen turns out succulent New Orleans– and French-inspired seasonal menus, with every component, from dressings to dessert ingredients, prepared within its four walls. Eschewing processed foods and preservatives by not bartering for them with collectible Burt Reynolds figurines, the chefs strive to cull as many local and organic ingredients as possible to compose Eclair Bistro’s venerable vittles. Tasty escargot rest in a small plate, in bed with crisp broiled mushroom caps under a blanket of herb butter and partnered with dip-friendly french bread ($9). Fresh rémoulade covers a trio of New Orleans–style blue crab cakes on another small plate ($11), and culinary triathletes fork-tender pork tenderloins roll around in breading before diving into the frying pan and resurfacing alongside a three-cheese macaroni bake ($18).
Diners can sup in Eclair Bistro’s intimate cottage setting, where sunlight pours through French windows or al fresco under shade-granting umbrellas, which, like newspapers and NASCAR helmets, can shield heads from raindrops. Since the restaurant is BYOB, its capable crew gladly uncorks patrons’ personal bottles of wine with no corking fee.
