The perfect food-and-wine pairing is like the fateful meeting of destined lovers, best celebrated with a tiny mock wedding presided over by a curmudgeonly pepper mill with a heart of gold. Combine cuisine and wine the way nature intended with today's deal: for $25, you get $50 worth of upscale wining and dining at B&E Filling Station Restaurant in Palmer Lake.
B&E Filling Station Restaurant stays true to its name by offering not only a tempting bill of belly-brimming fare but also a host of heart-filling hospitality. Avoid pulling a palate muscle by warming up with some sips of fine wine; Groupon customers who dine on Tuesday or Wednesday will receive one glass for free. In addition to the impressive list of grapey goodness, B&E pours a full bar's worth of beers and spirits. With your whistle wetted and appetite whetted, direct your desires to the dinner menu. Appetizers such as spicy crab cakes with remoulade ($9) and gourmet three-cheese pizza ($10) lay the foundation for decadent feasts. Sink your seafaring fork into a plate of pomegranate salmon ($19), or if your utensils prefer turf to surf, let them dance across a plate of pork tenderloin, swiftly cutting the rug of seared medallions woven with spicy orange-horseradish sauce ($19). For a repast as rustic and refined as John Wayne's one-film stint as James Bond in On Her Majesty's Secret Stagecoach, try a plate of asiago risotto with wild mushrooms ($18) and colossal shrimp (add $4).
Under the direction of hospitality experts and lifelong eaters Trevor and Shrese Rudd, B&E Filling Station Restaurant provides top-notch service, sustenance, and family-friendly ambience. The sophistication of dark-wood furniture festooned with elegant white linens is softened with colorful plates, flowers, paintings, and chewing at least 30 times before you swallow. Reservations are recommended, so call ahead to schedule your rendezvous with gourmet gastronomy.
