What You'll Get
French chefs were the first to recognize the potential of the egg, overcoming the stereotype that it was hard-boiled and always broke. Champion food rights like a Frenchman with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get a French meal for two at La Barrique (up to a $95.80 total value). The meal includes:
- Two appetizers (up to a $12.95 value each)
- Two entrees (up to a $34.95 value each)<p>
Belgian chef Jean-Paul Bingoni sustains La Barrique’s 60-year tradition of classic French bistro cuisine upon the polished tables of this elegant café. Meals begin traditionally with the velvety beef broth of french-onion soup or crab cake dappled with roasted red pepper and drizzled in coulis, pesto, and Serge Gainsbourg lyrics. An entree of mussels bathes in one of four fragrant stocks, including white wine and mustard or shallots and chorizo, and sports stacks of homemade fries to reward dining partners for their shucking assistance. Nimble fingers gild tender duck legs in an orange-ginger sauce, pairing them with a humble yet rich potato-and-cheese gratin, and burgundy braised short ribs trundle to tables with flanking escorts of baby carrots and mashed fingerling potatoes doused in roasted sweet garlic.
Paneled in dark wood and accented by red drapes, napkins, and seat cushions, the romantic café glows with light reflecting from the bar’s tin ceiling and off displays filled with a curated selection of organic French and international wines (not included with this Groupon). The chic European dining destination is snugly nestled between Fifth and Sixth Avenues in New York’s fashion district, making it a prime spot for people watching or literally romancing a skirt.
