French cuisine is as bold and elegant as the foreign-exchange student everyone swooned over, only it takes far more kindly to being poked with a fork. For $35, today's deal arranges a rendezvous between one's fork and $75 worth of French American cuisine and drinks at Taste, which is located in Cleveland Heights.

When his wife received a job opportunity in Cleveland, Chef Anthony Vicente left behind his position at the renowned Michelin-rated Pierre Gagnaire restaurant in Paris. Upon arrival, the Frenchman reassembled his passion for haute cuisine, along with several Statues of Liberty, into a select menu featuring the culinary crème de la crème. Start by waking up a sluggish palate with appetizers such as the red beet carpaccio with spinach, curry dressing, goat cheese, and smoked bacon ($8) or the paella with calamari and chorizo ($10) before dazzling it with dinner entrees that include rack of lamb with mashed carrots and mint emulsion ($24) and duck breast with mustard mashed potatoes and passion fruit sauce ($22). Everything can be sided with à la carte items like creamy leeks and mashed celery root ($5 each). Discriminating diners may also select an appetizer, entree, dessert, and two glasses from Taste's extensive red, white, and sparkling wine lists (under $10 per glass) for a prix fixe rate of $49.

When your stomach is full, indulge your body's vestigial dessert sac with red-bell-pepper cheesecake ($6), crème brûlée du jour ($7), and chocolate mousse with hazelnut ice cream. Although Taste’s intimate layout, exposed brick, and sleek Gallic savoir faire might cause even non-smokers to puff on invisible cigarettes with an air of world-weary cool, the unintimidating dining experience will make you feel as warm and welcome as a hug from a fur-coated maman while drinking wine in a steamy-windowed Peugeot. Reservations are highly recommended.


Cleveland Scene and Metromix have both reviewed Taste, as has this local blogger:

  • Taste is definitely a great restaurant to visit, and one can tell that the chef cares deeply about every element of his dishes. – Heights Eats

80% of Urbanspooners like Taste, and Metromixers give it four stars:

  • I was struck by how gorgeous this is, really sharp. Enjoyed the prix fixe dinner, really a bargain and the food was nicely presented and tasted very good. This is a great addition to Cleveland Heights and hopefully people will support it. These owners spent ALOT of money putting this place together. Can't wait to try it again – joeyhargate, Urbanspoon
  • Started out ok, they must have made some kitchen changes because my last two visits were ON Point! Highly recommend now!!!!! – Dan Rogan, Urbanspoon
