Get your daily-recommended amount of quaint (200 fuhrmans/day) with today's Groupon: $20 for $40 worth of French-Mediterranean cuisine and non-ethnic-specific drinks, plus soup and dessert (a $55 total value) at unique eatery Thomas Street Bistro. Tucked away in Capitol Hill, the bistro's Old World ambience garnishes every dish with sultry seaside romanticism.
Thomas Street Bistro's menu blends the taste of Provencal sunshine with the salt of the Mediterranean. All entrees are cooked from scratch (using local produce and gourmet spices), and come with soup, dessert, and an extra side of meaningful eye contact. Work your way up to entrees like poulet framboise, all natural chicken breast glazed with sweet and savory raspberry dressing ($16.50) or the braised lamb cooked with eastern spices in a garlic mint yogurt sauce ($17). Vegetarians will feel a Zorba dance in their mouth from the cous cous tagine cooked in a traditional clay pot ($15.75). If you're not particularly hungry, the chef will prepare a petit plat that pairs perfectly with a selection from the restaurant's wine list.
The bistro's tight space ensures you sit close to your date or your grade-school tae kwon do teacher. Occasional live guitar music laughs along with the flirtatious conversation that you're having with your date or your grade-school tae kwon do teacher. The candlelight casts flickering shadows on the closely packed walls. Given that the bistro's quaint confines can seat only a few romantics at a time, call ahead for reservations with a phone.
