Without fine-dining establishments, ordinary people would have no excuse for wearing a crown at the table and demanding to be called Copernicus. Live out delusions of grandeur with today's Groupon: for $14, you get a four-course summer lunch at Nu Restaurant, located on Granville Street (a $29 value). The four-course lunch takes place from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily.
Nu Restaurant's seasonal menus pamper palates with inventive, Mediterranean-inspired dishes derived from locally sourced ingredients. Nu's lauded team of sharpshooting chefs crafts four courses of light eats for a lunch menu kicking off with a flavourful buckshot of close-range greek-salad shooters. Albacore-tuna tartare floats in with fried capers in lemon sauce, and roasted chicken lounges regally on a throne of orzo-stuffed peppers topped with roasted-tomato sauce and feta. The taste-bud-courting procession finishes with chocolate mousse bedecked with caramelized milk and greek cookies. Guests dine in two levels of comfortably chic dining space adorned with floor-to-ceiling windows revealing the illuminations of the West Coast sunset. An outdoor seating area is also available for sharing the atmosphere with a friend, date, or fraternal twin once removed.
