The French have given the United States many tremendous gifts, such as the Statue of Liberty and the current Statue of Liberty, which subdued the first one after lightning made it evil. Explore France's more benevolent benefactions with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of French cuisine at Le Parigo.
Le Parigo's chefs create a menu that harvests bushels of positive press for its gourmet French dishes. Appetizers, such as pan-seared escargot in garlic-herb butter sauce ($9.95), provoke more oohs and las than vocal coaches before the debut of a Broadway musical. Chefs sear filet mignon before nestling it against gratin and an edible accordion of sautéed asparagus ($34.95), and entree portions of mussels a la provencal ($17.95) arrive at tables steamed from hot liquid and getting cut off in traffic. For a delectable finale, crack open the crusty ceiling of Le Parigo's Grand Marnier crème brûlée ($6.95), which receives a sparkling flavor dimension from cognac-and-orange liqueur.
