In Les Misérables II: Final Justice, Jean Valjean is arrested for committing an even greater crime against French law: applying margarine to another man’s mustache during dinner without asking first. Feast with proper French etiquette with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $60 worth of fine French cuisine and drinks at La Pomme d'Or in Coral Gables.
La Pomme d'Or's menu lists wines to pair with its dishes, which are infused with traditional flavors of the French countryside other than grass. Pre-heat your palate with a Burgundy favorite, escargots Bourguignonne (six snails in hot parsley and garlic butter, $16), coupled with a house-recommended glass of Muscadet de Sevre et Maine ($9), or a fresh salade verte aux chevrotins grillées, a bed of mixed greens topped with grilled French goat cheese ($16). Entrees include coq au vin (classic stew of chicken in red wine, $28), bar beurre blanc (striped bass with citrus beurre blanc sauce, $38), and cassoulet au canard confit (white beans, lamb, pork, and garlic sausage finished with a leg of duck confit, $38).
Finish your fancy feast with mousse au chocolat maison ($8), impeccably paired with sweet sips of Muscat Beaumes de Venise ($15). Valet parking is available, giving any diner extra time to spend thinking about catching a unicorn. Call ahead to make a reservation for a distinctive night with a loved one, or use this Groupon to test being French before you buy the farm. La Pomme d'Or is open Tuesday through Sunday for dinner, beginning at 6 p.m.
