Dinnertime has long provided a respite from the daily grind of stressful work, responsibilities, and the mind’s ever-looping soap-opera dialogue. Take a break from all the drama with today’s Groupon to The New French. Choose between the following options:
- For $39, you get a dinner for two, valid Monday–Friday (up to a $93 value).
- For $42, you get a dinner for two, valid Sunday (up to a $93 value).
Each dinner includes the following:
* Two appetizers (up to a $14 value each)
* Two entrees (up to a $28 value each)
* One dessert (up to a $9 value)
The New French’s prix fixe menu intrigues tongues with its dishes’ culinary creativity, and was hailed by Gayot as “worthy of a cross-town trek” for its “nouveau American fare with some global leanings.” Dining duos enjoy appetizers such as roasted local beets flavored with honey-infused ricotta, hazelnut, and vincotto, or the New French salad, fresh from a shower of roasted-shallot-and-pear vinaigrette. The grilled hanger steak makes an entrance worthy of having its own backup singers as it drips with chorizo vinaigrette, and seared scallops arrive with a coterie of apple-salsify puree, brussels sprouts, and parsnips. For dessert, chefs prepare gelato-topped dénouements such as pumpkin cheesecake with salted-caramel gelato as pairs admire the hand-drawn sketches covering the eatery’s walls or guess how many monkeys could swing from its chandeliers.
