Recently, the owner of Bistro Les Minots, a cozy French bistro in Astoria, Queens, contacted me about writing a post on the restaurant.
Normally, I don’t respond to commercial pitches unless I’ve personally had a good experience with the product or the service. But, I have a huge weakness for food, especially French cuisine (crepes, duck a l’orange, coq au vin… need I go on?), and I’d like to support small restaurant businesses when possible. So I negotiated a special with the owner for all my New York readers and now am very happy to announce my first restaurant special on this blog.
From now until December 31st, 2009, the owners of Bistro Les Minots will be offering a complimentary dessert and a glass of dessert wine to each guest with the purchase of one entree (entrees are priced around $12 to $17, from what I can see). All you have to do is to mention “Well-Heeled Blog” when you go into the restaurant. I love dessert and dessert wine, so I’m a bit sad that I’ve already left NYC and therefore cannot partake in Bistro Les Minots’ cuisine. The menus are already reasonably-priced, so if you throw in the free dessert and dessert wine, it’s a good deal for a nice evening out or a fun brunch date.
If you don’t want to order a la carte, Bistro Les Minots also offers prix fixe lunch and dinner menus for less than $20 during select hours. The restaurant is located on 30th Avenue between 47th and 48th streets, in Astoria, New York. Free delivery with $15 minimum and within a limited area (please call 718 606 2535 for more information).The restaurant has a 4 star rating on Yelp, so I feel comfortable that I’m sending readers to a good place.
On the website, Bistro Les Minots is described as a combination of Paris and the French Riviera. The menu “takes the better of these two beautiful regions of France so as to satisfy all tastes and desires at very affordable prices. The inviting front dining room coupled with the warm and romantic back room, provides the perfect atmosphere for any occasion, personal or corporate.”
