Though meals tend to bring friends together, meals peppered with magnets can push them apart. Enjoy an attractive repast with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of eclectic American fare at Through the Garden.
The kitchen crew at Through the Garden satiates vegetarians and meat eaters alike with an eclectic American dinner menu. Feed the army of Greeks hiding in your backpack with the mediterranean starter—a pile of house-made hummus strewn with tomatoes and flanked by warm pita triangles ($8.29). A provolone blanket ensconces a cut of flame-smooched rib eye to create the steak-house hoagie ($9.99)—one in a baker’s dozen of sandwiches—and flutes of penne play harmoniously with fresh vegetables and creamy tomato sauce in the garden pasta bowl ($11.99). Flavors of the South Pacific permeate the fresh veggies, rice, and sweet chunks of seared pineapple that make up the hawaiian stir-fry ($11.99).
Wood floors and tables fill the old-fashioned space between Through the Garden’s sunny-yellow walls, which are marked by floral window trim and framed artwork. During the warmer months, an airy outdoor patio surrounded by lush greenery and a white fence offers guests gulps of the finest oxygen molecules to pair with their meals.
Through the Garden
A number of housemade sauces add depth to Through the Garden’s dishes. Sweet, smoky barbecue sauce glistens across each rack of ribs, basil-garlic butter softens the deep flavors of char-grilled chicken breast, and garlic-dill sauce pools around the edges of crab cakes, proving that gravity may in fact exist. Bright-yellow walls and wooden floors surround tables scattered with American meals, including Cajun scallops nestled in angel-hair pasta and homemade barbarosa burgers baptized with splashes of beer. Outside, a white fence cordons off the stone-paved patio with oversized umbrellas.
