Preparing French cuisine at home is a laborious process that involves catching wild escargot and convincing crepes not to fold themselves into paper airplanes. Leave the work to the professionals with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of authentic French fare at Jilly’s Cafe in Evanston.

Jilly's Cafe infuses authentic French dishes with American elements in a range of entrees, sandwiches, and brunch selections sidling alongside an extensive wine list. Take a fragrant dive into mussels marinieres, peppered with shallots and fresh herbs in a white-wine cream sauce ($11), invoking the oceanic flavors of Paris II, the city's underwater counterpart. Roma tomatoes, fresh herbs, and flavorful garlic mingle in the mushroom risotto, finished with a deluge of sweet-cream butter and piquant parmesan cheese ($13 for lunch, $16 for dinner). Steak frites ($29) sate cravings for authentic French concoctions alongside an array of pastas, roasted meats, and fresh seafood. Noontime noshers partake of lavish entrees or taste lighter bites, with a selection of protein-packed salads ($9–$11) and innovative sandwiches, including the open-faced smoked-salmon sandwich decked with tarragon mayo, chopped egg, onions, and capers ($11). To aid in expert entree pairing, the extensive wine list organizes each varietal's flavor and body from lightest to heaviest to most likely to succeed, and the ever-changing items on the Sunday brunch menu tempt diners with an array of egg dishes, pancakes, and savory selections.
