The sudden onset of hunger pangs is the leading cause of unfinished novels, canceled duels, and tied soccer matches. Today's Groupon employs delicious Italian cuisine to cut down on unfinished business: for $10, you get $20 worth of fare and drinks at 3 Tomatoes & a Mozzarella.
A Tuscan-style bistro, 3 Tomatoes & a Mozzarella shushes mouthy midsections with traditional pastas, sumptuous hand-tossed pizzas, and other Old World specialties. The puttanesca pizza glazes its dough disk with a tomato sauce before layering parmesan and feta cheeses, anchovy, black olives, sliced tomatoes, thyme, and basil atop it in a tense game of culinary Jenga ($13.50 for 12"). Orders of shrimp-scampi pasta pay homage to the shrimp's natural habitat of garlic-butter sauce and are topped with parmesan and fresh basil ($16.50). Plates of pasta Bolognese ($13) can be accessorized with meatballs ($3 each) that are made fresh daily in-house, or sun-dried tomatoes ($1.50 extra). The appetite-whetting, homemade foccacia bread distracts digits and stomachs alike while the taste buds discuss meal options among themselves ($3).
Three Tomatoes & a Mozzarella also offers an international wine list that includes such sipping delights as the Caposaldo chianti ($8.50 per glass) and the Little Black Dress pinot grigio ($8 per glass). Patrons can opt to dine in amid the intimately lit décor accented by exposed brick and tile surfaces, or carry out tasty eats to enjoy a movie night at home or refreshing spaghetti bath.
