Many American bistros differentiate themselves from their European counterparts by serving region-specific dishes and replacing waiters with Bruce Springsteen. Satisfy a hungry heart with this Groupon.
$15 for $30 Worth of Pasta and French Cuisine
Pasta dominates a menu of dishes that include linguini with escargot and garlic butter ($16) or mushroom risotto ($18). Chefs prepare the house specialty, mussels ($20.95), in New Orleans style or with a choice of sauces including gorgonzola, basil, and champagne.
Oh la la! Bistro & Wine Bar
Chefs douse entrees in champagne sauce and cast nets of pasta over shrimp, scallops, and other sea treasures at Oh la la! Bistro & Wine Bar, a French-inspired bistro with a light touch and extensive wine bar. Thick filets of salmon swim in a bath of zesty dill sauce, and mussels open their shells to welcome one of six specialty sauces infused with gorgonzola or New Orleans–style spices. A decadent procession of French desserts passes through the kitchen’s triumphal arches, headlined by a perfectly torched crème brûlée and a rich, chocolate mousse garnished with a spattering of soft consonants. A mélange of circular and rectangular wooden tables fills out Oh la la! Bistro’s chic dining room, where artwork hangs from pastel walls, and chairs in a kaleidoscope of colors stand beside each other in mismatched harmony.
