The first European explorers set sail with hopes of finding new, exotic spices to placate the palates of epicurious monarchs, but all they found were heaps of inedible gold. Pick up where they left off by broadening your mouth's horizons with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of European dinner fare and drinks at A Taste of Europe, in Cobleskill.
Cosmopolitan gastronomes can sample cuisines from across Europe with a menu that includes fare from France, Spain, Greece, and more. Send hunger to the Greek isles with spanakopita, a delicate spinach-and-cheese concoction tucked inside flaky phyllo dough ($5.50). The pastete smuggles ground seasoned roast beef across German borders inside an inconspicuous fried pancake ($7.75). Opt to use man’s most natural eating utensil and spear the spicy spanish chicken kebabs, stacked with grilled meat, artichoke hearts, and veggies bathed in lime-and-herb marinade ($22).
While pronouncing veprova pecene na smetane may deter timid tongues, their efforts are rewarded with succulent roast pork tenderloin in a root-vegetable and sour-cream sauce ($27). Vegetable-anchored dishes include the savory pierogies stuffed with your choice of mushrooms or farmer's cheese and potato ($21). Inside A Taste of Europe, heavy, tasseled curtains, dark wood paneling, and a fireplace exude homey, Old World charm.
