In the words of Napolean Bonaparte, "Men are moved by two levers only: fear and stinky cheese.” Value the French emperor's wisdom with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of French bistro fare at Le Café Bistro on Biscayne Boulevard.
Le Café Bistro treats Francophile tastes with classic French dishes served in an eclectic, cozy atmosphere. Diners can choose from a slew of starters populating the varied bistro menu. Begin with authentic escargot ($7), or savor the french onion soup topped with a baked cheese-and-bread beret ($5). Classics, such as croque-monsieur sandwiches ($7), rib-eye steak with crispy frites ($15), and succulent braised-beef bourguignon served with mashed potatoes and rice ($14), give this spot a je ne sais quoi that's particularly difficult to describe. Crack through the caramelized sugar crust of a vanilla-bean crème brûlée ($5) while sipping a beverage from the drink menu, which touts various wines, beer options, and Segafredo coffee and tea.
Patrons can partake in the lounge's free WiFi or ogle the bistro's pop-art-lined walls. On Friday nights, Le Café hosts live music in a symphony of genres, including non-traditional jazz, funk, and world beat.
