Bistro dining has slowly but surely spread from France to the rest of the world, just like Impressionist painting, black-and-white striped shirts, and the refusal to stop smoking baguettes. Perform cultural exchange in your stomach with today's deal: for $20, you get $40 worth of bistro fare at Quince, located in Olmsted Falls.
Take a leisurely stroll down the dappled aisles of Quince's elegant menu to discover its latest fresh-made delights. Lunch offerings include hearty soups, greens, and flatbreads, as well as pastas and sandwiches. Wedge apart a clod of house-baked bread with a meaty Quince burger patty, garnished with bacon, lettuce, tomato, herb aioli, smoked Gouda, and onion straws ($9), or luxuriate in the similarly from-scratch summer lobster bisque with Old Bay popcorn, whole-wheat flatbread, and shrimp sausage ($10). Patrons of the later hours can dine in style with an appetizing triumvirate of teriyaki barbecue beef, nori slider, and ginger mango slaw ($8), before crushing hunger beneath an unforgiving avalanche of house-made shrimp and scallop tortellini pasta ($18) or bacon-wrapped meatloaf ($15).
Chef Gregg Korney is a native son, bringing home the far-flung tastes of the wondrous cosmos to create a cornucopia of comfort foods with exotic twists. Drop by Quince for a soulful culinary experience and let his creations punch your grumbling appetite in the face.
