The spaghetti western film genre is noted for its good use of extreme close-ups, its bad use of tomato sauce during gunfights, and its ugly use of Clint Eastwood's puppetry skills. Get a fistful of Western-less spaghetti with today's Groupon: for $25, you get dinner for two at Anima Italian Bistro in Brooklyn (up to a $62 value). The dinner includes:
- Two appetizers
- Two entrees
Anima Italian Bistro's master chef Pierluigi "Gigi" Sacchetti enlists the aid of seasonal ingredients to craft homemade pastas and conjure authentic Italian cuisine. Roust slumbering appetites with polenta salsiccia e funghi, which pairs italian cornmeal with a quintuplet of mushrooms and zesty italian sausage. Broccoletti pizza ferries broccoli rabe and sun-dried tomatoes to mouth ports, and fettuccine ai funghi clings to fork tines like a marooned chef getting airlifted from a vat of alfredo sauce. Tuck in the braised lamb shanks lounging on a bed of swiss-chard risotto, or sample savory beef cheeks, perfect for diverting the lunges of great aunts with impulse-control issues.
