Like voluntary tasings and constructive criticism, some meals are best when delivered in small doses. Snack in stride with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of contemporary fare and drinks at Alter Ego Tapas & Lounge in Lexington.
Shareable tapas make way for full-size burgers and pita pizzas at Alter Ego Tapas & Lounge, a cozy lunch spot that doubles as a buzzing nerve center for late-night revelry. Crab-bruschetta tapas ($10) crown crispy garlic toast with feta cheese and lump crabmeat, and pita-bread triangles dive into a creamy bath of paprika-dusted hummus ($5). After pinching the ceramic cheeks of their adorable small plates, diners can move on to entrees such as the bacon-stuffed Ego burger ($6.50–$8.50) and the ham- and pineapple-topped tropical pita pizza ($10). Both pair nicely with a signature cocktail or pave the way for the New York–style Ego cheesecake ($6), which comes drizzled with lines of Hershey’s syrup to form a facsimile of Manhattan’s subway map. Diners can take in the open air of Alter Ego's moonlit patio space or head inside to enjoy karaoke, open mics, and live bands or DJs on weekends.
