Unlike many French bistros where waiters mime and tables are carved from stinky cheese, American bistros let diners enjoy upscale eats without requiring them to first retrieve it from an invisible box. Celebrate your fine food freedoms today's Groupon to The Village Inn. The Village Inn is one of the oldest restaurants in Wayne, adhering to a small menu of succulent specialties made from fresh, daily purchased ingredients. Customers are invited to get cozy in any of the restaurant's three charming dining areas, including a rustic fireplace room replete with a flickering light source and a private wine cellar room bedecked in dark oak and burgundy. Wash down savory forkfuls of grilled shrimp and risotto cake ($12) and potato crusted chilean sea bass ($24) with spoonfuls from the creme brulee sampler ($7) or something sippable from the bistro's full bar.
Reservations are strongly recommended. Village Inn is closed Mondays.

The Village Inn
The Village Inn may look like an simple country kitchen, but the food is nothing short of gourmet. Chef and owner John A. Martino calls on his training at the Culinary Institute of America and Le Cordon Bleu to craft a menu of contemporary American Continental cuisine, which ranges from potato-crusted Chilean sea bass to a veal porterhouse topped with sautéed mushrooms. After the chef inspects the dishes for quality, presentation, and political leanings, they emerge from the kitchen to waft gourmet scents through four separate dining areas. Everyday diners sidle up to white-clothed tables amid floral carpets and drapes in the Fireplace Room, while top-shelf liquors come together to form a host of creative cocktails in the wood-lined bar. For private occasions, groups of up to 20 gather at a long oak table beneath the cozy, low ceilings of the Wine Cellar Room, and large events bask in the glow of a towering chandelier in the bright and airy expanse of The Great Room.
