Inviting the town porter to your house every other Tuesday evening for drinks makes your home neither a porterhouse nor even a porter abode. Today’s Groupon will spare you any further awkward conversations about "what's the craziest thing you ever ported." For $15, you get $30 worth of hearty meals and West Coast ales at Porterhouse in West Seattle.
Where to Sit: Grab a seat at the large community dining table for a more social experience. There are also smaller tables for enjoying intimate meals beneath the coppery glow of a tin ceiling.
When to Go: The community table tends to set a tone for an animated dinner service. However, the mood relaxes a bit if you show up later in the evening.
Inside Tip: An oft-changing menu gives the chefs the flexibility to accommodate most dietary restrictions. Let your server know if you have any special needs.
Croquettes: breaded and fried Spanish fritters, most commonly stuffed with ham but also available in meat, seafood, and veggie varieties.
While You’re in the Neighborhood
Before: Play lawn bowling alongside Green Lake (located at the southwest corner of the lake).
After: Catch some live music or sing live-band karaoke at Nectar Lounge (412 N. 36th Street).
