Mediterranean civilizations invented many lasting concepts, developing astronomy to explain the cosmos and democracy to equally divide lamb kebabs. Split a skewer with today's Groupon to Boardwalk Bistro. Choose between the following options:
For $40, you get a Platinum Plate five-course, prix fixe dinner for two (an $84 value). The courses include:
- Any two Spanish tapas selections
- Two cups of soup
- Two caesar salads
- Two dinner entrees
- Two desserts
The chefs at the Zagat-rated Boardwalk Bistro fuse authentic Old World Mediterranean dishes with contemporary style in fresh tapas, steak, seafood, and house-made desserts. Couples commence the count down of the five-course platinum tasting menu with Spanish tapas such as a marinated-and-skewered lamb kebob with tzatziki sauce and a rioja reduction. Two cups of soup concurrently warm insides, and hearts-of-romaine caesar salads with goat cheese, port vinaigrette, and herb crostini light up taste buds like a roman candle in a hall of mirrors. Diners can graze on surf or turf entrees such as a manchego-cheese and purple-basil lobster cake with champagne aioli or a 6-ounce filet mignon with demi-glace, potatoes lyonnaise, and the vegetable du jour. A chocolate-pecan-caramel torte with Frangelico anglaise marks a sweet finale, whereas a trio of raspberry, lemon, and mango sorbets chill palates more delicately than a midwinter game of open-mouthed freeze tag.
Boardwalk Bistro's antique-style furniture and colorful tile and tapestry décor welcome patrons with an informal, Middle Eastern ambience. The exposed-stone walls resound with live music and a tagine top standing in for a cowbell on Friday and Saturday evening.
In 1977, Barbara Hunt decided to set aside a year of her life to explore the world and learn about its diverse food and flavor structures. So, she plucked a low-hanging 30,000-mile Pan Am travel voucher from the nearest voucher tree and did just that. One dietetics degree and a decade later, Boardwalk Bistro was born. Now, Barbara and two executive chefs focus their three collective minds on empty plates, envisioning authentic Old-World Mediterranean dishes prepared with contemporary style. Barbara shines as the bistro's sommelier while their collective concentration brings forth bouillabaisse (seafood stew), paella valencia (with rabbit, chicken, duck, and chorizo), spanish tapas that warm up stomachs the same way baseball players warm up for big games (by eating tapas), and plenty of other meaty and vegetarian plates. Boardwalk Bistro's antique-style furniture and colorful decor create an informal, Mediterranean ambiance perfect for enjoying a trio of raspberry, lemon, and mango sorbets, which chill palates more delicately than a midwinter game of open-mouthed freeze tag. The exposed-stone walls resound with live music and a tagine top standing in for a cowbell on Friday and Saturday evenings.
