Like an unassuming oyster, bistros employ casual surroundings to safely cradle elegant innards, especially pearl-encrusted pepper shakers. Uncover gastronomic gems with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of bistro fare and pours at Retro Bistro in Mount Prospect.

Slinging a slick combination of French classics and contemporary bistro bites, this art-lined eatery has tickled taste buds for more than two decades. Summon chef Christopher Barth to sear you a New York strip steak au poivre ($23.50) if you're craving protein, or opt for a soft and succulent serving of foie gras ($14.50) if a recent trip to the orthodontist left your chompers wary of chewing. Fresh wasabi-crusted Hawaiian ahi tuna sports a cloak of red miso ($23.95), and Lolo's pasta comes tossed with grilled vegetables, Boursin cheese, and basil to distract diners from the fact that its linguini was born naked ($7–$13). Rinse down solids with a specialty cocktail such as the triple-chocolate martini ($10), or enjoy a pour ($6+/glass) from the restaurant's lengthy wine list, which, like an Il Divo mixtape, is populated with international accents.

Retro Bistro

An unassuming strip-mall storefront belies Retro Bistro’s cozy dining room, where wall murals painted by a local artist and white-draped tables set the scene for elegant French and Tuscan cuisine. The menu, which pleased Zagat's tasters and earned a feature on the show "Check Please!," balances upscale plates of seared foie gras or wasabi-crusted ahi tuna with more casual options, including sandwiches and Alsatian-style flambéed pizzas.

“I think that’s what people realize when they get here—how affordable it can be to get out for dinner,” said Christopher Barth, who owns the bistro along with his wife, Lorraine. “We have so many regulars.”

Lorraine cites the pair’s love of food, people, and wine as the passion behind their business, and the amply stocked wine list features plenty of budget-friendly bottles, as well as reserve vintages to toast special occasions, such as an engagement or a piñata making it to retirement. The eatery’s bar and lounge area also facilitates revelry, as mixologists blend specialty martinis with a focus on fruit-infused and chocolate-flavored options.
