The French have given the United States many tremendous gifts, such as the Statue of Liberty and the current Statue of Liberty, which subdued the first one after lightning made it evil. Raise a glass in gratitude with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of French fare and drinks at The Merry Table.
The Merry Tables wines and dines its patrons with an abundance of classic French cuisine and toast-ready quaffs. Peruse the restaurant’s métier, their crêpe menu, to indulge in an appetizing array of sweet and savory thin French pancakes. Delve forks into the saumon crepe, a piquant collaboration of boursin cheese, smoked salmon, red onion, eggs, and capers ($12.95), or the delectable suzette crepe, replete with sugar, butter, orange, Grand Marnier, and the citrusy zest of bicorn hats ($6.95). Auxiliary lunch fare fills grumbling belly boxes with foodstuffs such as an onion soup crock, whose flavorful layers peel back to reveal the concentric crocks within ($6.25). Vino venture capitalists may stake claims in the wine menu, and the extensive menu of beverages appeals to brunchers by boasting $5 mimosas and Bloody Marys on Sundays.
The flaxen walls of The Merry Table’s interior provide cozy nesting grounds for a gallery’s worth of evocative artwork. Dine indoors among the bistro’s rustic-chic exposed piping or retire to the confines of the patio’s parasol-toting tables, offering screening on sun-drenched days and inquisitive moonbeam-filled nights.
