What You'll Get
It was in a fin-de-siècle Paris bistro that Marcel Proust finished the final volume of his monumental memoir, usually translated as If Avocados Are Wrong I Don't Want To Be Right. Correct your palette with today's deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of upscale American fare, plus a complimentary dinner appetizer or dessert, at Medallions Bistro, located downtown. Medallions is closed on the weekends and the complimentary appetizer or dessert is only valid at dinnertime.
Medallions Bistro offers a mix of traditional bistro fare and innovative American cuisine in a casual dining setting. Start off strong with the spicy mango shrimp canapés appetizer ($9), or sample the battered sweet corn croquettes ($6). The bison burger ($8), veggie fettucine alfredo ($9) and grilled salmon salad ($9) are just a few of the options that eaters will find cozily familiar, like a pet parrot that knows your social security number. The most popular entrée is the namesake beef tenderloin medallions ($21), served on a fluffy mattress of basmati rice and topped with your choice of signature sauce; options include a red wine demi-glaze, a balsamic strawberry sauce, and a creamy green chile. Flourish to a finish with a slice of the pineapple upside-down cake ($5) or a chunk of chocolate lava cake ($5).
The wrought-iron railings, white tablecloths and antique lanterns give Medallions an authentic bistro feel where couples can comfortably agree to disagree on the differences between a square and a quadrilateral. Medallions Bistro offers a full-service bar and a variety of premium beers on tap. There are four Happy Hours every day, occurring consecutively from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m.
