Dining etiquette requires one to use a soupspoon for gazpacho, a dessertspoon for crème brûlée, and chopsticks for fitting in when dining with walrus. Learn to harness an arsenal of utensils with today’s Groupon to Georges Brasserie. Choose between the following options:
- For $5, you get $10 worth of French-influenced fare at lunch.
- For $17, you get $34 worth of French-influenced fare at dinner.
Georges Brasserie’s executive chef Andrew Dodd conjures hearty platters of French-influenced fare infused with upscale flair. From 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. noshers can choose from the full-service lunch menu with its classics such as the croque-madame ($9) and trout served with almonds, roasted potatoes, haricot verts, and brown butter sauce ($13). Fromage and charcuterie platters ($11–$14) dazzle taste buds with local cheeses and a rotating daily selection of house-made charcuterie. Patrons can also go with something from the lighter and quicker bistro menu, such as white wine mussels and frites ($9), soup and salad ($7), or Georges Philly ($9), in which sliced new york strip steak mingles with sautéed peppers in a three-cheese mornay sauce for a French take on the Philadelphia classic.
Couples refuel midway through town-painting antics with dinner-time plates of mussels gussied up in a variety of guises such as white-wine sauce ($12), curry ($11), or chorizo ($12). For a gustatory experience of the turf variety, land sharks can plant all 15 rows of teeth into tender slow-braised short ribs that caper heedlessly about with an entourage of roasted root veggies, sautéed spinach, and red wine jus ($21). In addition, a daily selection of east and west coast oysters are available at market price from the Raw Bar or opt for the New York strip, which throws a curveball at the classic cut, marinating it in a brandy-peppercorn sauce ($25).
As an added bonus, Groupon buyers who use their Groupon before November 25 and sign up for Georges Brasserie’s mailing list receive a $5 gift certificate.
