Before fishermen discovered the edibility of fish, they used each catch as bait for larger species, hoping in the end to hook the biggest fish of all—friendship. Enjoy the fruits of the sea with today's Groupon: for $17, you get $35 worth of pasta and fine cuisine at Andora.
Andora delivers beautifully arranged platefuls of upscale cuisine in a casual yet refined atmosphere. Dinner diners can feast on a menu brimming with seafood and meat options such as grilled ahi tuna, served with zesty wasabi-mango rice and daikon radish slaw in ponzu aioli ($24), and veal scaloppini more tender than a Luther Vandross lullaby ($23). Taste buds tingle with each bite of zesty pastas including spicy-shrimp cappellini ($21) and vegetarian-friendly eggplant ratatouille ravioli, which simmers spinach noodles, roasted eggplant, zucchini, parmesan, and baby spinach in a robust tomato broth ($17). Andora's skilled chefs sate afternoon appetites with a lunch menu bearing gourmet sandwiches ($9–$13) and colorful entrees such as jumbo lump crab cakes and mixed vegetables in a red-onion caper sauce ($13).
Classic white tablecloths and ambient lighting accentuate the restaurant's elegant interior. Opening at the end of May, the outdoor dining area boasts an oasis of lush plant life.
