Chicken Tortilla plates up a sumptuous menu of slow roasted fare, decorating tonguescapes with homemade Peruvian tastes. Ravage a whole rotisserie chicken with a pair of sides such as rice and beans, steak fries, or the South American equivalent—fried yucca ($15.95). Other Peruvian palate pleasers include classic tacos ($9.99), tostitos ($2.95), and gourmet jumbo 12-inch burritos, packed full of beans, sauces, chili corn, and choice of steak or chicken ($8.95). For a relaxing dining experience complete with an accommodating staff, customers can dine in the restaurant's cozy interior, and those searching for an aromatic chicken to use during blindfolded football matches can carry out.
A multifarious fusion of tastes, sounds, sights, and smells, Sensorium regales guests with a gourmet feast alongside a spellbinding stage show and exhilarating entertainment. Like at a traditional Elvis impersonator family dinner, diners partake of a caravan's worth of culinary creations inside a 36-foot geodesic dome as costumed performers dance and dramatize throughout the 12 courses. Though not included with this Groupon, varietal votaries can complement the tantalizing tastes and exotic dishes with a wine and cocktail pairing ($45 per person).
District 2 sates cavernous appetites within a casual community sports bar, boasting more than a dozen brews and five tap-side TVs. Suds-loving patrons can sop up pints of Guinness ($7), Miller Lite ($5), or Original Sin cider ($6), with a succulent hot and spicy chorizo dip, fraught with red peppers and the glowing coals of defeated taste buds ($8). Or sink snack-craving incisors into a menu of gourmet bites, such as a quartet of Angus mini burgers on toasted brioche rolls and platters pilfered from Barbie's dream house (4 for $9, 8 for $14). The D2 mac 'n' cheese, frosted with three-cheese fondue, delights dairy addicts and self-obsessed cows ($10), and the Yuengling beer-battered fish and chips treats seafarers to incognito imbibitions ($12).
Jordans 8's ingredient mixers grill hearty American favorites and roll an eclectic lineup of sushi. Flip through the grill menu to pinpoint an appetizer, such as the fried calamari, which sails to the gullet through a river of pineapple-coriander sauce on a hull of mixed greens ($8). Then elect an entree, such as the 14-ounce boneless rib-eye steak ($18), or one of 24 maki and nigiri sushi selections, one for every hour of sleep humans need in a week. The lava roll, one of many specialty rolls, juxtaposes shrimp tempura and shredded crab with aioli sauce ($11), and the roster of sushi and sashimi rolls amalgamate spices, vegetables, and raw fish ($9–$19), infusing the sushi menu with a wide range of flavors.
Mexico and Italy are an ocean apart, but at Il Capo di Capitol Hill, the culinary team whips up meals that unite their culinary traditions. Pastas, such as spaghetti with meatballs and seafood linguine, represent the Italian portion of the menu, along with Italian-inspired entrees that range from salmon drizzled in lemon caper sauce to steak crowned with porcini mushrooms. For south-of-the-border flavors, diners can opt for chimichangas, chilies rellenos, and burritos, which can also come in handy in propping up uneven table legs. Margaritas and a slew of classic cocktails stand at the ready to wash down the savory bites.
Kraze Burger was founded in 1989, distinguishing itself with its made-from-scratch approach to its burgers. Thirteen years later, visitors still won't find perfectly uniform patties hauled out from freezers, flavorless greens, or fries grown in test tubes. Instead they'll fill their bellies with hand-cut potatoes, made-to-order Angus beef burgers, and salads and sides culled from seasonal, locally sourced produce. Among their wide range of eclectic burgers is the Hawaiian burger, which is topped with a chargrilled pineapple, and their plain-and-simple cheeseburger.
