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 $10, you get $20 worth of bistro fare at The Funky Door Bistro & Wine Room.
The Funky Door Bistro & Wine Room's colorful art masterpieces enthrall eaters between bites of cheese-dunked french-bread croutons and other upscale French-influenced entrees. Smoked gouda and caraway splash in the menu's Funky Door Fondue pot ($15), which can be divvied up between two guests or poured on high-school chalkboards to teach home-economics students the meaning of fondue. Chefs cleave jalapeño sourdough buns and pop the Funky Door burger's gourmet beef patty into place, crowning it with a slice of swiss, pepper jack, or smoked gouda ($14). The popular squash lasagna shirks conventional culinary notions and bribes from cattle farmers, swapping out beef for butternut and spaghetti squash layered between pesto and italian cheeses ($10).
The eatery's marble-topped bar stretches across an exposed-brick wall beneath sparkling glass light fixtures, which cast rays across vibrant blooms and linens tinted black and white like an old-timey TV broadcast.
