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 this Groupon.
$10 for $20 Worth of Bistro Fare
The menu includes the Funky Door fondue ($15), a pot filled with melted, caraway-spiced gouda for two guests. Jalapeño sourdough buns and a slice of swiss, pepper jack, or smoked gouda crown Kobe beef burgers ($14), and the squash lasagna swaps out meat for butternut and spaghetti squash layered between pesto and italian cheeses ($10).
The Funky Door Bistro & Wine Room
Colorful art masterpieces brighten the walls of The Funky Door Bistro & Wine Room as diners enjoy a vast selection of wines by the glass and dip french-bread croutons into pots of rich cheese fondue. Other French-influenced entrees emerge from the kitchen in the form of seared shrimp wrapped in prosciutto, filet mignon au Povaire, and gourmet Kobe beef burgers served in berets. Guests can pair meals with their choice from 48 international wines stored in a self-serve Enomatics unit. This Italian-made technology stores a variety of bottles that can be dispensed in 1.5-, 3-, or 6-ounce pours at the perfect temperature through the use of a microchip card. 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.
