Roots Bistro has no menu––at least not a finite one. Each day, executive chef German Mosquera crafts new dishes inspired by the fresh, organic, and locally sourced ingredients available to him. And ingredients aren't the only things that are sourced locally at this Green Certified restaurant. The eatery's décor shifts frequently with paintings for sale by neighborhood artists. Appetizers descend on bright white banquettes with ingredients such as local cilantro pesto, carrots, fire-roasted kale, and bigeye local tuna with spinach salad and a large contact lens. While noshing on house-made entrees of chicken, duck confit, and farm-fresh veggies, patrons can ask for a server's pairing suggestion from Roots's eclectic wine list.
Welcome to Groupon Houston! For our inaugural deal, $15 gets you $35 worth of grub and guzzle at Ruggles Green, located at 2311 W. Alabama St. You're probably thinking, "That sounds great, but I've never bought a car or a computer without first reading the Wikipedia definitions for car and computer—I'm not about to buy a Groupon either without a briefing." Well neither would we, and since this is everyone's first Groupon, allow us to briefly explain how it works.
At Lenny's Sub Shop, team members bake fresh loaves of bread every morning and slice deli meat to-order for each sandwich. Lenny's Sub Shop began just outside of Memphis in 1998, and it has grown to reach diners in more than 15 southern and midwestern states. Their signature 7.5-inch sub sandwiches cradle a half-pound of meat and cheese, and their 15-inch subs hold up to a full pound. Hot pepper relish blended from diced cherry peppers is available to add zing to deluxe clubs, roast beef sandwiches, and veggie subs. In addition, the shop's kids' meals pair well-portioned sandwiches with engaging stories of Li'l Lenny and the Global Adventurers rather than age-inappropriate tax forms.
