One of the great simple pleasures of traveling abroad is stumbling upon a restaurant frequented by locals, followed closely by bathing in gelato and loudly explaining why everything in America is better. Replicate that feeling with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of bistro fare and tapas at The Brasserie.

At The Brasserie, chef Patrick Jean captures a balance between gourmet and relaxed dining, reflected in a menu bearing delectable but unfussy European-bistro-inspired fare. Unlike the timid american burger, which cowers inside a bun under a blanket of cheese, the french burger ($9 for lunch, $10 for dinner) invites public scrutiny while showboating around in a cape of savory black pepper, white mushroom, or blue cheese sauce. Seafood dishes unite unlikely plate mates, such as the tilapia ($18.95 for dinner) festooned with mango, cilantro, and lemon sauce, resulting in a combination bolder than the font of an angry letter typed by a 12-year-old. The most important hybrid meal of the day, brunch fuels bellies with a array of midday munchables, such as pancakes ($7+), including banana, chocolate chip, and blueberry, eggs florentine ($10), or the brunch platter, which comes with a waffle, pancake, piece of french toast, and an omelet ($14).

Finishing flourishes include dessert crepes such as the apple confit and caramel crêpe ($3) or digestifs such as cognacs ($8+) or Grand Marnier ($9.50). Servers scrawl the day’s selection of tapas, ranging from beef tips ($4) to tuna sushi ($5) on blackboards, infusing the white-table-clothed room with a homey atmosphere that invites relaxed chatter and spontaneous recitations of multiplication tables.
