Sometimes there aren't enough hours in the day to cook, either because of daylight-saving time or time-gobbling time goblins. Squeeze out all the hours from your day rag with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of French-inspired takeout at Loïc Gourmet.
Loïc Gourmet follows a philosophy of providing busy people with fresh, French-inspired takeout fare while leaving the smallest environmental footprint possible. The daily changing menu pillages local seasonal produce to concoct appetizers such as the charcuterie plate, an array of naturally raised, finishing-school-educated Niagara meats that include prosciutto, capicollo, and salamis dressed with crostini ($7.75). Sandwich selections may include the croque madame, a traditional French grilled sandwich bedecked with ham, béchamel sauce, emmental cheese, and a fried egg ($8.75). Entrees span delicacies from sweet-pea risotto festooned with baby spinach ($13.50) to poached sockeye salmon with julienne vegetables ($12.50). Loïc also dispenses a limited rotation of frozen options, such as beet-and-cabbage borscht ($9 for 24 oz.) and beef brisket in a ginger-and-apricot jus ($11), which shoppers can heat up at home or onboard their steam-powered airships.
Loïc packages most of its takeout dishes in 100 per cent compostable material, with glassware and ceramic packaging available with a deposit. Cutlery comes with an additional fee ($0.45/cover), and a 15 per cent surcharge accompanies entrees and sides that need to be heated. Loïc uses only biodegradable products derived from sustainably harvested faerie spring waters to clean its store and equipment.
