What You'll Get
Creole cuisine's distinct spices stem from its attitude-laden ingredients, such as brazen peppers, incredulous shrimp, and sassy-fras. Give your taste buds some lip with today's Groupon from Augusta Restaurant in Oxford.
Choose from two options:
- For $15, you get $30 worth of dinner fare (valid 3p.m.–Close).
- For $6, you get $12 worth of lunch fare (valid 11a.m.–3p.m.).
New Orleans veterans Jeri and Ben Halperin blend Creole culinary know-how with local ingredients to create Augusta Restaurant's signature dishes. Fire the sustenance-starting pistol with crawfish beignets ($8), which jog toward your tongue’s finish line alongside spicy remoulade. Protein options, such as the marinated hanger steak ($16 for petite cut, $24 for full), are seared in wood fire grills before befriending herbed butter, wild mushroom, or red wine bordelaise sauces. Lip-smackers can forgo flatware and dive head first into the Best Pork Tenderloin in Iowa ($10), a beastly belly-buster topped with homemade pickles on a freshly baked bun. The lunchtime option is also valid towards Sunday brunch.
- With a cajun-influenced menu, generous portions of made-from-scratch food, and shockingly modest prices, Augusta Restaurant is cherished by local residents as much as farflung fans. – Sarah Kingsbury, Nina Benjamin, and Claudia Petrick, The Iowa Source
- The aroma wafting from the [gumbo] soup is intoxicating and I wish I could bottle it forever. – Jessica Jones, The Cornellian
