Our world has given rise to countless pairings, both inspired (buttered peanuts and jam) and unfortunate (construction sites and Optional Helmet Day). Today’s Groupon offers one of the better pairings: $25 worth of eclectic bistro fare and drinks for $10 at Pearl Bistro. Pearl serves classic dishes from around the world in a casual, comfortable atmosphere. Its upscale cuisine is concocted with locally grown produce and healthier oils; all the ingredients are fresh and flavorful.
The menu changes with the season's flavors. Start with southern classic shrimp and grits (sautéed in rich brown gravy and poured over Weisenberger stone ground grits, $8), then dine on a 10-ounce pork chop with a creamy Kentucky bourbon sauce, garlic cheese grits, and sautéed spinach for $18. There are more than 10 types of sandwiches, wraps, and burgers (served with either Asian coleslaw, curry pasta salad, or Pearl's signature chip mix) and quiche du jour made fresh daily ($8). Pair any plate with red or white grapen goodness from Pearl's carefully chosen selection of wines.
Pearl's filling, healthy fare lures lunchers during the day. In the evening it's an intimate spot to fill up on flavorful international cuisine. Service is friendly, and the dining room's décor is as agreeable as a Magic 8-Ball that's been shaken until its fortune-telling icosagon always reads Outlook good.
The Indianapolis Business Journal says:
- Pearl Bistro has quietly earned a reputation in its first year as more than just another spot for ladies-who-lunch. Stressing locally grown produce, healthier oils and seasonal menu changes, its lunchtime vibe is casual and welcoming. – Lou Harry, Indianapolis Business Journal
- Get up, get out and try Pearl Bistro....it's too good to let disappear from our culinary landscape. – Betsy A., Yelp
- Go here and eat. I've recommended it to many pwope [sic] and have yet to be chastised for it. Also, you must try desert [sic]. Any choice you make will take your breath away. – Catherine, Urbanspoon
