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.
$12 for $24 Worth of Paella for Two
The menu includes paella vegetariana with saffron rice ($20 for a two-person serving); paella Valenciana with pork, chicken, chorizo, and vegetables simmered with saffron rice ($26 for a two-person serving); and paella Negra, with mixed seafood simmered in black squid ink ($30 for a two-person serving).
Born in the Andalusia region of Spain, siblings Jose and Bernie grew up watching their mother prepare traditional Spanish dishes. Their fondness for her cooking lasted into adulthood, prompting them to leave their respective careers and open Paella House to re-create those flavors together. In the restaurant's kitchen, chefs infuse rice with saffron and mix in meats and seafood to create platters piled with enough paella for two people to share or build a fort with. The paella Negra blends scallops, shrimp, clams, and mussels with a black squid-ink sauce that gives the dish its signature hue, and the paella Valenciana harmoniously melds chicken, chorizo, and pork. The chefs also whip up tapas to share, such as aged serrano ham with manchego cheese, sausage, and olives and empanadas filled with spinach, as well as entrees such as the San Jacobo—a breaded sirloin steak stuffed with manchego and mozzarella cheeses and drizzled with a creamy blue-cheese sauce.
