After he took the throne, Napoleon instituted the tradition of serving bread with every meal to put his mother's baguette-heavy care packages to use. Indulge in French tradition with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of French fusion cuisine and drinks at Obsession Lounge.
The culinary artists at Obsession Lounge rouse taste buds with a creative menu of French fusion cuisine embellished with eclectic flavours. Diners can inaugurate francophone appetites with the escargot, a classic assemblage of garlic-butter-roasted snails nestled among mozzarella, fresh chives, and a crostini for soaking up flavour and building scale models of the Notre Dame ($10). To flourish the epicurean fete, chefs enlist a puff-pastry cocoon to harbour the AAA-Alberta-beef 6-ounce fillet, caramelized onions, and brandy-peppercorn sauce of the Wellington Obsession ($29). A collection of homemade, whole-wheat-crust pizzas such as the barbecue chicken pie, enlivened with bacon, barbecue sauce, and monterey jack cheese ($14) beckons contemporary palates, and gorgonzola cheese and sun-dried tomatoes accent the wine-infused marinara warming the made-from-scratch pasta noodles in the vegetarian merlot dinner ($17). As a chic, modern interior inspires patrons to nibble playful fare, Obsession's patio dining, like a recipe written in the Shakespearean sonnet form, inspires the summoning of romantic dishes such as the veal frangelica, dressed in cream sauce and roasted pecans ($19).
