Hungry stomachs must find their own food when brains get busy plotting ways to lay claim to the second, secret French throne. Quell an insurgent appetite with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of new American cuisine at Brightwood Bistro on Georgia Avenue.
Brightwood's menu is packed to the gills with seafood and other classic items, crafted and dished out by an amiable staff. Warm up dormant appetites in the airy dining room, lined with large windows, by sampling esculent appetizers such as the sautéed shrimp and rice-noodle soup, which is served in thai lemon-grass broth with fresh veggies ($8), or jump right in with a po' boy sandwich, featuring remoulade sauce on crisp french bread, with a choice of chicken ($10), shrimp, oyster, or catfish ($12). Sample the house pride and joy with the crab-cake entree—jumbo lump crabmeat partnered with mashed potatoes and sautéed spinach ($24). If that still isn't enough, simply order the Brightwood burger, an Angus beef burger with red-pepper mayo ($12), and ask for it to be wrapped in a larger Angus beef burger.
