Many American bistros differentiate themselves from their European counterparts by serving region-specific dishes and replacing waiters with Bruce Springsteen. Satisfy a hungry heart with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of fusion cuisine and drinks at Bistro 135 in East Rochester.
At Bistro 135, chefs meld a menu of American and European delicacies as live jazz musicians strum instruments six nights a week. The paella’s jumbo scallops and Andouille sausage nap on a fragrant pillow of saffron rice ($31), and the oxtail ragu curtails winter shivers with a hearty stew of braised oxtail in tomato gravy ($26). Additionally, patrons can peruse a selection of more than 50 wines curated from wine rivers all over the world. Fruit-infused, signature cocktails delight with unexpected flavor combinations, such as the berry espresso martini, which mingles vanilla vodka with brewed espresso and brandied cherries .
Pale wooden floors and ochre walls create a warm ambiance in which to chew in syncopation with jazz tunes. In warmer months, diners migrate to Bistro 135’s courtyard, whose high walls and tree canopy protects dining companions from the prying eyes of hot air balloon captains.
Our customers loved this deal last year, earning Bistro 135 a spot on Groupon's Best of 2011 list.
The soft sounds of live jazz flow through a low-lit restaurant, easing guests into a comfortable state as the aroma of grilled steak and seared fish fills the air. It's just another night at Bistro 135, a multi-level space that hosts local musicians throughout the week on a balcony stage, who spice up the atmosphere as diners savor a fusion of international and American cuisines. Pairs can share blackened jumbo scallops and manchurian cauliflower at high-top tables in the bar area and enjoy their meals in the cozy outdoor courtyard to soak in the warm weather or surprise eclipses.
