Recent archaeological evidence suggests that neanderthals could make lifelike shadow puppets and parallel park mastodons, leaving the fork as the sole element distinguishing modern humans from their prehistoric forebears. Take full advantage of several millennia of human development with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a three-course upscale meal for two at Block 7 Wine Company (up to a $102 total value). The meal includes the following:
- Two soups or salads (excluding the chicken caesar salad) (up to a $9 value each)
- One appetizer (up to a $14 value)
- Two entrees (up to a $35 value each)
Block 7 Wine Company piques palates with a creative menu of seasonal cuisine that fuses free-range meats and sustainable seafood with locally grown, organic produce whenever possible. Toast a dining partnership by clinking bowls of Block 7’s featured soup, or deploy forks straight into one of four verdant salads swarming with organic tomatoes, Spanish blue cheese, or blueberry vinaigrette. A 16-ounce rib eye is dry aged for 21 days to imbue it with concentrated flavor, tender texture, and perfect deadpan delivery before it is sent out of the kitchen escorted by an entourage of oven-roasted vegetables.
Dry-aged burgers carved from the same cut arrive swathed in a gooey blanket of gruyere cheese and peppered with smoked-bacon relish, arugula, and homemade dijonoli, and house-made pappardelle pasta pairs the broad noodles with succulent jumbo shrimp, pancetta, asparagus, and savory herb butter. Diners can also stuff mouths or airplane carryons with one of four flatbreads topped with gourmet combinations such as braised rabbit with fig and parmesan or house-made italian sausage with smoked bacon in brazen defiance of Einstein's law of two-dimensional flavor containment. Although alcoholic beverages are not covered by the value of today’s Groupon, Block 7 hosts a wide selection of international wines to help fuel group sing-alongs and solo line dances during live musical performances on Sunday nights.
