A hearty meal should include a sizable mound of goodness and offer several plates, like a baseball field made of tasty beef. Celebrate America’s other pastime with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of upscale American fare at 15 North Roadside Kitchen.
The chefs at 15 North assemble fresh, local ingredients into comforting plates peppered with innovative twists. The lunch menu whets appetites with a list of starters such as fried green tomatoes with pimento cheese, red-pepper jam, and applewood-smoked bacon pulled fresh from the bacon orchards ($7). The Roadside Burger’s ($9) freshly ground patty layered with cheese, bacon, and sautéed onions arrives at the table with a choice of side such as seasoned fries or salad (all sides are $5 by themselves). Dinner expands on the midday salad-and-sandwich menu, adding fried calamari ($10) to the appetizers and wild-mushroom risotto to the main plates. Black-truffle shavings flutter onto the risotto’s untamed mushrooms, with parmesan cheese singing a savory tune under a drizzle of truffle oil ($14).
