What You'll Get
Bistro chefs typically prepare their slow-cooked cuisine by tying stirring spoons to turtles' legs and teaching their braised meats how to play Snood. Taste the fruits of their careful foodsmithing with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Southern European–influenced cuisine at Laurus Bistro, located in Danville. Today's deal is not valid toward happy-hour specials.
Peek through Laurus Bistro's open-exhibition kitchen to watch executive chef Matthew Silverman concoct his contemporary Mediterranean fare, greeting diners with a fresh and daily-changing lunch and dinner menu. Pair an eligible spicy pita chip with the white-bean hummus ($9) or sip the truffled cauliflower bisque ($4–$8) to prime your mouth motors before revving up for the wood-fired pepperoni caesar flatbread, a savory dish with crisp romaine lettuce, shaved asiago, and tomato sauce ($6–$12). Alternatively, you can carefully snorkel through the bouillabaisse's broth to find mussels, clams, and halibut ($14–$25) or gently guide a flavorful flock of lamb Bolognese and tagliatelle ($9–$17) to your mouth pasture.
Laurus Bistro's relaxing ambiance enables casual conversation as patrons kick back and sip wines such as the Viognier & Chenin Blanc 2008 ($7 a glass) and signature cocktails such as the Fallen Angel, a piquant blend of Bombay gin, lemon juice, bitters, and a touch of mint ($8). A casual, yet elegant atmosphere––modeled after Mediterranean villas––is made even more inviting thanks to the friendly, knowledgeable staff and a diamond-encrusted jetpack signed by Burton Gilliam.
