Like attaching a fake mustache to a Halloween mask or cleverly changing your name from Obi-Wan Kenobi to Ben Kenobi, adding a new ingredient to something familiar can render it delightfully unrecognizable. Enjoy inventive eats with today's Groupon for a four-course prix-fixe dinner for two from Collier Catering at The House in Burien (a $56 value). Choose from the following options:
•$25 for a prix-fixe dinner for two Tuesday–Thursday
•$30 for a prix-fixe dinner for two Friday and Saturday
The House overflows with vibes of culinary excellence, which waft from its ever-changing prix-fixe menu of updated, upscale American classics. The chef lovingly crafts four courses with his highly skilled hands, infusing a recent chicken entree with a tomato-balsamic marinade and coaxing it to rest on a bed of couscous and fresh spinach leaves with a falsetto-heavy Mediterranean lullaby. After receiving soup and salad, diners can choose their own entrees and dessert from the menu. Main courses have been known to consist of linguine and prawns finished with light basil and seared, peppered rib-eye steak. Meals are intentionally served at a relaxed pace, allowing conversation to foster and develop like the electric slide on a junior-high dance floor, bouncing off the mirror-laden, warmly lit walls and settling comfortably amid the modern decór and intimate seating.
Beginning at 6:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, dinners are accompanied by live, acoustic music performed by local and national acts such as Michael Langdon and Cornerstone. The House opens for service at 5 p.m.
