Pasta is flexible, sometimes saucy, and sticks to the wall when it's done, like Spider-Man performing a gymnastics routine. Settle in for a pasta performance with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of casual Italian fare at Mendini's on Main in Thiensville.
At Mendini’s on Main, piled-high platters transport steaming plates of pasta primavera, pan-seared salmon, crusty focaccia toast, and frosty drinks from the full bar to patrons' tables. Chefs dress the menu’s pan-seared salmon ($15.95) in honey-chipotle breading before sending it waltzing into a bed of wild rice and béarnaise sauce. Forks can tango with tender vegetables and twirl graceful linguine noodles on a plate of pasta primavera drenched in white-wine sauce ($10.95), and the crisp romaine lettuce, crunchy croutons, and creamy dressing of the signature caesar salad ($9.95) stirs feelings of jealousy in the unadorned vines climbing the restaurant walls. Patrons can pull up a bar stool along the fully stocked bar to sip from Mendini’s wide selection of wines or to show off their good posture by balancing a stack of martini glasses on their heads.
