Fine-dining etiquette dictates that napkins must be kept on your lap, unless being used to signal to the waiter that your table has hit an iceberg. Have a night to remember with this Groupon.

$20 for $40 Worth of Contemporary American Cuisine

While the menu often rotates to incorporate local, seasonal ingredients, recent meals have included ribs barbecued in a spicy-sweet sauce ($18 for half rack; $30 for a full), grilled vegetables with saffron couscous and honey-lime vinaigrette ($15), and thai braised pork with soba noodles, coconut milk and green curry broth, and peanut and cilantro pesto ($21).

128 Café

Sprays of flowers in petite, glass vases perch atop each table, a lush reminder of the local fields where 128 Café culls the seasonal fruits, vegetables, and other ingredients which comprise its rotating menu. Mélanges of veggies mingle with pasta and couscous or provide a crisp counterpoint to tender chops, tenderloins, or barbecued baby back ribs, a house specialty. Chefs whip up each dish to be served in the softly lit dining room or from 128 Café's food truck, which frequently rolls to festivals, boulevards, and photo finishes at pinewood derbies.

Grilled cod with yams, onions and pureed peas. Wow, this dish was phenominal. Seriously thoughtful and full of flavor.
