After he took the throne, Napoleon instituted the tradition of serving bread with every meal to put his mother's baguette-heavy care packages to use. Indulge in French tradition with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of French cuisine at The Brownstone Cafe. This Groupon expires two months from the feature date.
The Brownstone Cafe's chef, Olivier Ciesielski, unveils a well-traveled menu of French and European delectables. Like the edible car tires favored by robber barons, the River O pizza outfits a doughy discus with oven-roasted artichoke hearts, green and red peppers, and imported Italian tomatoes ($9.95), and the croque-monsieur sandwich snaps up ham, swiss cheese, and béchamel sauce within its toasted jaws ($7.95). Brunch invites guests to meander through the savory realms of the Les Trois Fromages crêpe, bursting with blue, goat, and swiss cheeses ($8.95), and bananas, strawberries, and caramelized apples hopscotch across the grooves of the La Gauffre Royale Belgium waffle ($7.95). In the same way backup dancers enhance State of the Union addresses, the café's outdoor patio, replete with shady cabanas and a fountain, enriches diners' Francophile-creating feasts.
