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. Celebrate tamer French fare with today's Groupon: for $9, you get $18 worth of French-inspired American fare and drinks at Westport Café & Bar, located on Westport Road.
Behind its Parisian-style storefront, Westport Café & Bar serves an eclectic menu of elegantly prepared French and American dishes alongside an extensive collection of flavorful libations. Scrumptious hors d’oeuvres such as baked ricotta with goat cheese and truffled honey ($9) prep palates for further culinary exploration. For the main course, select Westport’s seared tuna sandwich with ginger aioli ($11) or seasonal specialty of spring pea ravioli, with pasta pockets of spring peas, ricotta, and herbs de provence served in a lemon brown butter sauce ($9). Smatterings of sage, pepper, and parmesan flavor the savory pasta au poivre, which, like the Archduke of Brunch, is crowned by a fried egg ($13). Wash it all down with potent potables such as a champagne cocktail ($8) or the house’s specialty Harvest in Jalisco cocktail, an amalgamation of tequila, agave nectar, sweet corn, and rhubarb bitters ($8). Boulevard Tank 7 Ale ($5) flows freely from Westport’s tap, and Parisian strongmen meticulously pump out each french-pressed coffee ($4).
Westport Café & Bar combines the black-and-white tile floors and stained glass of a traditional Parisian café with the convivial attitude of an easygoing American tavern, minus the frequent fistfights over poker cheating and bald-eagle habitats. Inject your next meal with a little French flair without having to mention Charles de Gaulle’s disastrous run as a Royals pitcher with today’s Groupon to Westport Café & Bar.
