What You'll Get
Bistros became popular in America after French diplomats visiting the Continental Congress insisted on dining outdoors, breaking Ben Franklin’s time-saving custom of eating while sleeping in the shower. Take a bite of bistro history with today's Groupon to J Ryan's on the Grill in Sarasota. Choose between the following options:
• For $15, you get $30 worth of American bistro fare for dinner.
• For $10, you get $20 worth of American bistro fare for lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
For 15 years, J Ryan's on the Grill's culinary crew has dished up a menu's worth of hearty sandwiches and entrees inspired by southern and international flavors. The chicken pot pie houses poultry, vegetables, and creamy sauce within a pastry shell ($14.25), and the boneless pork loin chops ($12.25+) become sweeter with an accompaniment of apple chutney and a commitment to charity work. Clamorous bellies exchange scribbled notes of praise for items from J Ryan's lunch menu, which includes a juicy philly cheesesteak sandwich ($8.95) and Mediterranean pasta loaded with shrimp, mussels, and garlic-wine sauce ($8.95). Patrons can sip from J Ryan's ample wine and cocktail list($4.75+/glass) within the dimly lit dining room, enveloped by dark wood walls and verdant plants that convert carbon dioxide into vinaigrette.
