Restaurants offer diners both a delicious reprieve from the kitchen and a secure environment that makes it virtually impossible for the dish to run away with the spoon. Keep your eating implements obedient with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of American and international fare and drinks at Appaloosa Grill, located in the 16th Street Mall.
Appaloosa Grill keeps tongue buds singing with its menu of entrees and all-natural meats. Quiet bellowing bellies with well-rounded starters, such as the Allgood fondue, consisting of Bull & Bush amber-ale cheese, southwest bison bratwurst, and grilled jalapeño-cheddar bread ($13), or treat veggie-centric teeth to the black-bean burger, a seared hand-pressed veggie patty served on a rustic roll ($9). Meat seekers can make carnivorous eyes with the lemongrass-teriyaki spare ribs, which plates Salmon Creek Farms pork with potato korroke and smoked-salt edamame ($18). Finish off the night with the brownie bread pudding ($6), served with cinnamon gelato and toasted hazelnuts, to add insult to fullness, and let live music treat underrepresented senses.
