Tapas, like books, cars, and husbands, are designed to be shared with those closest to you. Indulge in the best of Spanish-style sharing with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of tapas and New American fusion at Amsterdam Restaurant and Tapas Lounge, located across from Columbia University in Morningside Heights. Today's deal is good for lunch, dinner, and late-night dining (till 1 a.m. Wednesday through Saturday). Amsterdam boasts bi-level dining inside its warm and inviting eatery, serving up a menu of fusioned foods influenced by Asian, Mediterranean, and Latin cuisine. Sit upstairs and water a parched palate with juicy beef empanadas, fresh greek salads, and crab-and-bacon mac 'n' cheese. In the downstairs lounge, reclining revelers share tapas plates amid candlelight, camaraderie, and cocktails, all without interruptions from pushy parental landlords.
- This was my first visit, but it stood out as one of the best dining experiences I've had in this area. The space was really warm and inviting, the staff were friendly & courteous and best of all the food and drinks were amazing! I'll definitely plan a few trips back. – Anonymous on 02/11/2008, MenuPages
- Everything I've had there has been delish - the sandwiches, salads and soups are always good, and the specials never dissapoint [sic]. – Marissa J., Yelp
