Introducing a date to foreign cuisine can make you seem exotic, much like only communicating with them in the language you just invented. Be worldly with this Groupon.

The Galvez family invites guests to taste the vibrant flavors of their homestyle dishes at La Familia, creating hearty dishes with Spanish, Cuban, and Puerto Rican influence. Paella with mussels, clams, and shrimp, a recent addition to the menu, takes a starring role, as do Puerto Rican-style beef empanadas, Cuban sandwiches, and coconut flan. Recognizing that a wealth of culinary riches can be overwhelming, the Galvez family also offers Noche de Locura on Friday and Saturday nights–a chance for families to order five dishes to share as a table.
Awesome family restaurant! The paella was amazing as was the coconut and regular flan.Jenn, Urbanspoon, 6/1/12
