Bistros are remarkable in that they somehow manage to be both fancy and casual at the same time, much like a necktie with Taz on it. Feel gussied up without too much fuss with today's Groupon for French cuisine at Le Gamin's Franklin Street location in Greenpoint. Choose between the following options:
- For $20, you get $40 worth of French cuisine and drinks.
- For $10, you get $20 worth of French cuisine and drinks.
Le Gamin's menu of locally sourced, organic, and seasonal eats (when possible) fills mouths with breakfast, lunch, and dinner, depending on the location of the sun. Sheltered and cosmopolitan taste buds alike will enjoy the selection of authentic French favorites, such as crêpes, quiche, escargot, and more, and palates will savor selections from the extensive wine list. Slake stomach hunger pains with a jambon fromage, a succulent crêpe salées stuffed with country ham and swiss cheese ($9). Diners can savor a sandwich de bifteck au jus, in which thinly sliced skirt steak is crowned with caramelized onions ($12.75), giving tongues a sense of elation that they haven't felt since their appearance on Mouths Say the Darndest Things. Visitors can bathe and frolic in Le Gamin’s Parisian atmosphere, described as "butter-laden" by New York magazine, which evokes the casual romance of a French bistro without the hassle of fending off the baguette thunderstorms in most French cities.
- In addition to the food being good and tasting authentic (at least to a non-french like me), I really like the vibe. The whole place has a comfortable, non-pretentious, and relaxed feel as reflected in the service. – Milan M., Yelp
