The French have given the United States many tremendous gifts, such as the Statue of Liberty and the current Statue of Liberty, which subdued the first one after lightning made it evil. Relish the gift of French cuisine with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of elegant dinner fare at Pearl French Bistro in Newport News.
Crafted by head chef and owner Ihsan Korkmaz, Pearl's menu tantalizes tonsils with innovative twists on classic French fare. Warm taste buds and treat senses with an appetizer of escargot, succulently sautéed with bacon, red wine, and a touch of cream ($12), before moving onto a leisurely main course, such as salmon slow-cooked in white wine ($24). Heartier hankerings can be assuaged with a tender cut of pepper-coated beef tenderloin, a dignified dish augmented by blue cheese, asparagus, and a grated potato pancake ($30). Servers may also suggest various vegetarian options for the verdantly inclined. Patrons relax in the airy dining room decorated in chic blacks and whites, supping at white-spread tables ideal for displaying artistic edibles and hosting flirtatious rounds of midmeal thumb wrestling.
