Rome wasn’t built in a day, mainly because construction workers took lengthy pasta breaks. While away your lunch hour with cuisine worthy of the Roman Empire with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Italian and Mediterranean cuisine and drinks at Picasso’s Bistro in Chesterfield.
Taking a health-conscious approach to cuisine, Picasso's Bistro wields a menu of freshly prepared provender, eschewing butter in favor of olive oil to create fare that delights both tongues and hearts. Certified Angus beef is transformed into entrees such as the filet Maison, whose tenderloin, doused in a dijon-mustard-brandy sauce, rests on a bed of mushrooms after stumbling home ($28.50). Traditional chicken piccata is decked out with lemon and capers ($17.95), and the pan-seared ahi tuna invites yukon-gold potatoes and sautéed shiitake mushrooms to join the gustatory revelry ($29.50).
Picasso’s Bistro’s chef expertly shaves cherubs for angel hair al pomodoro e basilico ($12.50) and stuffs cannelloni with meat before capping them with melted mozzarella cheese and red meat sauce ($15.95). An array of wines that lean toward Italy’s vineyards dot the menu, and live entertainment fills the air with music on weekend evenings; check the music schedule for upcoming performances.
