One of the great simple pleasures of traveling abroad is stumbling upon a restaurant frequented by locals, followed closely by bathing in gelato and loudly explaining why everything in America is better. Replicate that feeling with this Groupon.

Cafe Paragon

The casual bistro charm of Cafe Paragon’s dining room, its dark wood furnishings and glowing box lamps setting an easygoing mood, translates faithfully onto dishes that Gayot deemed “healthy and flavorful renditions of Mediterranean and American staples.” The prosciutto panini pairs grilled apples with brie cheese on French bread beneath a balsamic glaze, while the French burger tops off at 8 ounces of Black Angus beef, with applewood-smoked bacon and boursin cheese filling in the margins of the pillowy onion roll. Entrees such as a 16-ounce rib eye topped with garlic blue cheese butter and butternut squash ravioli testify to the diversity of the menu, which balances nicely between fresh eats such as blueberry salads and hearty steaks and fish.

At night, the space transforms into something of a nightclub. Bartenders augment the Mediterranean mezzes and filet sliders with specialty martinis, wine, and cocktails. Club music, meanwhile, booms through the speakers, willing guests to let their hair down, order a specialty drink, and dance.
